Download this set of free Christmas ornaments printable set. You’ll get 45 different designs including blank ornaments to color in all different ways.
Since the free printable Christmas ornaments are in black and white – you can use your favorite color to decorate your ornament. Plus, you can color the same ornament design differently for even more unique looks.
Cute Christmas crafts can get pricey and complicated. It’s why I love a good paper craft – they are inexpensive to make, the only additional cost you’ll have from the paper are whatever coloring materials you use and some string or ribbon to hang them.
These paper ornaments are great to use anytime during the holiday season. They make fun Christmas crafts for kids of all ages or even adults! The printable templates would be great to have on hand for the kids to do with family members while waiting for Christmas dinner. It’s an easy craft to have on hand during the month of December to to give to your kids when they say they’re bored.
The ornaments are like printable Christmas decorations – you (or your children) can decorate them any way you’d like to add to your own Christmas tree.
These printable ornaments are a great way to spend an afternoon with your kids or use them as a classroom or party activity.
What Do the Free Printable Ornament Templates Look Like?
You’ll get 45 unique ornaments included in the free printables set. There are 4 different designs per page and a set of blank templates as well. The ornaments have black and white line art so they are ready to color any way you’d like.
Here is what each sheet of printable Christmas tree ornaments looks like.
The first set is just a page of blank printable ornaments so that you can design your own ornaments.
Second, is a set of ornaments with simple outlines that are easy for kids of all ages to color.
Then, you have a page of ornaments with classic Christmas symbols – a mini Christmas tree, Santa Claus, an angel, and some holly.
Next up are these ornaments with a simple snowflake design. Each ornament has a different snowflake.
This set has a more unique pattern that may be harder for young kids to color – it may be best for older kids. Of course, kids of any age can still color these if you aren’t worried about the little kids trying to stay in the lines.
This next free ornament template has a more complicated ornament pattern as well. The intricate designs may make best for older children.
Candy canes, gingerbread men, snowmen, and a penguin are displayed on this next set of ornaments. They’re perfect symbols to represent Christmas time.
This may be my favorite of the free printable Christmas ornament templates. I love the reindeer and little car with a pine tree on top.
How cute are these furry winter animals dressed in warm clothes? They’d make adorable ornaments.
I loved them so much, I couldn’t just have 4 of these on ornament printables so I made 8.
Lastly, this page of ornaments includes a sleigh, bell, present, and some candles. They all perfectly say Merry Christmas!

Use as One Whole Sheet or 4 Individual Ornaments
Depending on your needs with these DIY Christmas ornaments, you can either leave the printable coloring pages as they are. Or, you could consider cutting the ornaments into 4 individual ornaments. Each ornament would become it’s own coloring page.
What Type of Paper Should I Print On?
I suggest printing on a thick paper paper like card stock. This is my favorite white card stock. White is best because it will allow any color you use to show up as intended – color card stock can change the look of the colors used.
What Should I use to Decorate the Homemade Ornaments?
You can use markers, crayons, colored pencils, paint, or even glitter glue!
What is the Trick to Putting a Hole in the Ornament to Hang It?
I suggest first cutting out your ornament minus the hole that is at the top of each ornament. Next, use a hole punch to punch a center hole in the middle of the ornament top. Then, use the hole punch to go around and continuing punching along the inside of the circular line until the entire inside of the circle has been hole punched out.
If you prefer to cut out the center hole, you can. I suggest folding the top hole portion in half and making a small slice and then use very small scissors to cut. The hole punch method is the easy way (I tested both!)
Can I use an Ornament Hook?
I suggest putting a ribbon or piece of string through the hole at the top of the ornament. It will be better for the delicate paper. Then, you can use an ornament hook or even a paper clip through the ribbon to hang it on the tree.
Ideas for Using the Ornaments in the Classroom
Wouldn’t these Christmas ornament coloring pages be a fun holiday craft for kids to do at a school holiday party? Or, you could have your class decorate their own Christmas tree ornaments to add to a classroom tree.
Just make sure to make enough copies for the entire class. I suggest making extra copies in case children mess up.
If you have indoor recess due to the cold weather, these would make great coloring sheets to put out for students to use. There are lots of great options for using these during the Christmas season (as long as, of course, that aligns with your school rules. I know some schools cannot do Christmas activities).
Benefits of Having Kids Make their Own Christmas Ornaments
Aside from being a fun way to bring some holiday spirit to a classroom or home, coloring in ornaments actually have some benefits for children.
Coloring is a great activity for practicing fine motor skills, especially for younger kids. It also helps them practice their hand eye coordination.
People of all ages will benefit from the soothing effect of coloring. It actually can relax your brain which is why it has become such a great activity for even adults to do (it’s why adult coloring books have become so popular – it’s super calming!) It can reduce both anxiety and stress for some people.
