Creative Ideas for Christmas Tree Templates
You can use the tree pattern to create Christmas cards. Simply cut out the pattern and trace it onto construction paper or cardstock that’s been folded in half.
Holiday Cards: You can write a nice holiday message on the inside and decorate the outside of Christmas card with glue, glitter and buttons!
Use as Stencils: These templates could easily be used as stencils. Print the Christmas tree on card stock and either cut the tree from the inside out, our cut it out directly for a reverse stencil.
Decorate the Christmas Trees: If you are using these for class room use, you can print out several of each of the Christmas tree patterns and let the kids choose which one they’d like to decorate.
You can put out lots of fun crafting materials like crayons, markers, glue, confetti, glitter, poms-poms and even magazine cutouts. This list is endless!
Then let them have at it decorating their litter hearts out.
Use as Craft Templates: These trees would be great to use for holiday crafts as well. We used a tree template for our felt Christmas tree ornament and they turned out adorable. The smaller tree templates work well for this.
You can also make gorgeous felt Christmas Ornaments like these ones.
I’ll show you some of the tree templates we have and tell you what we’ve used them for or plan on using them for. I hope you find one that fits your needs!

This is one of my favorite tree templates, a Christmas Tree Cookie Template! It’s perfect to print out and decorate just like you would a cookie!
This one would be especially fun to laminate and use as a Christmas Playdoh mat! Kids can shape their playdough to fit in the tree shape and then decorate their cookies with playdough “icing” and “Sprinkles.”
