Free Printable Christmas Tree decoration- a vintage “compliments of the season” card repurposed as a Christmas tree ornament which can also be used as a unique vintage gift wrapping accent.
For the Christmas tree in my bedroom (see details here), I wanted a very vintage, old world feel. You can see all of the details for my tree, including the other free printables and DIY tutorials, here. I DIY’d so many things on this tree, so it was a really fun one to pull together!
I wanted to add a lot of character and a very collected feel, so I added some sweet vintage graphics. I found this darling little graphic on The Graphics Fairy site and knew the style and typography would be so perfect for my Christmas tree. I photoshopped it just a tad so it would match the tea dyed look of my banners, and stacked them 8 to a page to save paper.

- I bought this flocked Christmas tree for my room and love it
Download and Print Cards
The file I created has 8 cards to a page. I had them printed down at the copy store because their laser printer prints so much more evenly and prettier than mine at home does. The color is more true and even too. I took in my own card stock (it is much cheaper this way).
Hint: if you want them to be smaller, you can always have them printed at a smaller percentage- ie: 90%, 80%, etc.
Cut Out Cards and Create Ornaments
You can cut out these cards and turn them into ornaments in a few different ways:
- punch a hole in the top and hang with twine
- hot glue a ribbon to the back
- or just do what I did and wedge them in the branches just as-is. They have stayed pretty well.
Other Uses for these Printable Vintage Cards
These cards are cute as ornaments but could also be used for other decorations including gift wrapping, tied to flower arrangements or other items around the house fir Christmas, tied to a neighbor gift and more.
You could even Jazz them up a bit with German glass glitter like I did for the other vintage Santa ornaments here.
