These 10 free winter botanical printables have a timeless, vintage look, and they’re perfect to display all winter long on a gallery wall or individually!
So, does anyone really care about fall after Halloween?
I know I don’t!
It’s like the last drunken party guest who hasn’t figured out that everyone else has gone home while the hosts give him the stink eye from the kitchen.
In September, Twitter and Instagram and Facebook are all abuzz about the impending arrival of fall and the attendant pumpkin-spicification of everything.
But now? In November?
Where’s all that pre-season enthusiasm?
We’re only halfway through the season. Where have all the fall cheerleaders gone?
They’ve all fled, because by November, fall gets ugly.
Gone are the vibrant leaves – the golden yellows, the fiery reds and stunning oranges.
The farm stands are boarded up and battened down until spring.
The orchards are bare, and the skies are gray.
It’s just a long stretch of blech until winter finally arrives with Christmas close on its heels.
So I say we skip the second half of fall and go directly to winter once the last trick-or-treater steps off the stoop and back into the night.
I say let winter begin November 1!
Because then we can dispense with trying to put a good face on tired autumn decorating and go directly to our winter decor.
Winter decor doesn’t have to be Christmas decor. Good winter decor is timeless and can be displayed with pride from November until the last storms of March roll through and ruin your dreams of an early spring.
To help kick off your winter decorating, Handan has assembled this awesome collection of vintage winter botanical printables!
These winter botanical printables will look good each and every year, but they are especially perfect this year, as they complement the vintage theme we’re cultivating with our Mambo Yarn trees, our faux fur trees and our paper snowflake trees.
You’ll be seeing pictures of our winter botanical printables in upcoming posts. Right now, these printables are so fresh, we haven’t received ours back from Staples yet!
All these winter botanical printables are designed to fit 8.5×11 and 16×20 inch frames. The 8.5×11 inch sized printables are PDFs, so they are not scalable. But the 16×20 inch printables are JPEGs, so you can scale them down to 12×15 / 8×10 / 4×5 inches with no problems. If you need help with scaling down these printables so you can print them using your home printer, then make sure you check out Handan’s “How To Easily Resize Pictures” post.
Also, if you don’t have a large format printer like Canon i8720 Printer (prints up to 13×19 inches) and are wondering the best place to get these printables printed bigger than 8×12, we recommend trying Staples in your area or Amazon print shop. Both stores offer custom-sized prints on matte or glossy paper and they both cost about the same. Staples also offers Engineering Prints, which are really affordable for large-format prints, but in some areas (like ours), they must be ordered from their online print shop.
Now it’s time to click on the button below to download today’s free winter botanical prints – you can find them all in the Vintage Illustrations or Christmas section of The VIP Patch.
