Festive printable Avery templates for all your DIY Christmas projects
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. And definitely, the best time to get crafty. Whether you’re an experienced “maker,” or just want to add a personal touch this season, there’s an Avery template for you (and everyone in between).
The best part is that designing with Avery templates is completely free. Personalize free pre-designed templates, or design from scratch with our free Avery Design and Print Online software. Projects can be saved to your free Avery account and printed from any device.
You can even share saved Avery template projects with friends and family via email… for free, of course! Which is perfect for Christmas so that you can focus on sending gifts from the heart to your loved ones.
It’s so easy to start creating custom projects with hundreds of pre-designed Avery templates you can personalize. Or start with a blank template for a specific Avery product when you want to upload your own artwork or design from scratch. Finish by printing your projects from home, or let us print for you.
More Christmas ideas and helpful tips for your holiday projects:
1) Make mailing merry and bright with Avery 5160 address labels
Avery 5160 address labels are, by far, the reigning champ of Christmas labels. Especially for mailing Christmas cards and sending letters to long-distance loved ones.
There are literally hundreds of Christmas templates for 5160 Avery address labels to choose from! With so many festive choices, there’s no way we could pick a favorite, but we’d love to hear yours. Shout it out on Instagram and Facebook and let us know!
Did you know? You can autofill Avery templates with your Christmas card mailing list. The Mail Merge feature in Avery Design and Print Online software can automatically pull all your address from any spreadsheet you choose and apply one address to each label.
2) Try templates for bigger Avery address labels on your holiday cards
You’ll never go wrong with an Avery 5160 address label, but sometimes it’s fun to shake things up! Avery 8163 address labels are a little bit bigger (2″ x 4″) and can double as address labels for Christmas card envelopes or packages.
If you’re really in the mood to shake things up with your Christmas address labels, try shopping blank labels by the sheet. You can get blank labels in all your favorite Avery address label sizes (or custom sizes), but you get to choose the material.
3) Create your own personalized envelope seals
If you had to get just one size of label and make it work in a bunch of different ways for Christmas projects, our glossy white 2″ round labels are incredibly versatile. That’s why our 2″ round blank Avery template is always a top template pick.
Our favorite way to use the blank 2″ round Avery template is for making custom envelope seals. You can use a pre-designed Christmas template to match your address labels or create timeless monogrammed envelope seals.
Using Avery Design and Print Online, you can design personalized round Christmas labels in three ways:
- Create your own design from scratch on a blank template with in-software tools
- Upload your own design from your computer to a blank Avery template
- Browse pre-designed 2″ round Christmas Avery templates that you can modify
4) Baking season favorites: Avery templates for fabric transfers
‘Tis the season… for baking! There’s something about the holidays that brings the baker out in even the most kitchen-challenged folks. Cute holiday aprons make fantastic gifts and they’re easy to personalize with Avery templates for fabric transfers.
Did you know? Fabric transfers work differently on light, dark and stretchy fabrics. Avery templates for fabric transfers are designed to work best with each type of fabric. It’s important that you match the right transfer to the material you’re working with.
The best fabric transfer for using with common pre-made aprons is the one for light fabrics. Go to the matching Avery template and click “Start Designing” to design from scratch, or browse by category to find cute Christmas templates for fabric transfers.
Check out these helpful videos demonstrating how to use light fabric transfers for your DIY project.
5) Personalize holiday gift tags with blank Avery templates for tags
Photo gift tags are one of the hottest trends for Christmas gift wrapping. The blank Avery template for our most popular printable tag (22802) is perfect for making your own photo gift tag. Or browse a selection of Christmassy Avery templates for 22802 gift tags.
PRO TIP: Use the Edit One feature to add names or different photos to individual gift tags.
6) “Brisk Air” coordinated Avery templates from the holiday gallery
Beautifully wrapped gifts that look like they all go together without being too “matchy-matchy” make for a truly stylish display under the tree. Our gallery of pre-designed Christmas templates is perfect for achieving a chic coordinated look.
In the Christmas gallery, you can sort by Avery templates for cards, tags, and labels of various sizes and shapes. We’re really loving the Avery template design theme called “Brisk Air” with its elegant gold and blue colors and natural plant elements. The Brisk Air template for square gift tags is especially cute.
7) Beautiful Avery templates for creating your own holiday cards
Creating stunning Christmas cards (even when you’re running behind and making your holiday cards at the last minute) is so incredibly easy with pre-designed Avery templates. You literally just pick one, add your own photo and edit the text with your name and/or message.
PRO TIP: If you’re printing a large amount of Christmas cards or your design has a lot of saturated colors, save money on ink and try custom-printed greeting cards. Professional printing machines can handle photographs, saturated colors and large quantities much better than your desktop printer.
8) Best Avery template for creating festive shipping labels
Okay, this one is a cheat because we’re not going to give you a specific Avery template for shipping labels. Why? Because package sizes vary widely, what size and type of shipping label you’ll need really depends on the size of your package.
Instead, we’re going to give you a mind-blowing, expert-level hack for adding any Avery template to any Avery product!
- Find the Avery template you like in the Christmas template gallery.
- If it doesn’t come on the size you need for your shipping label, simply open the Avery template for the product it’s shown on.
- Immediately save the project to your Avery account.
- When you’re logged into to your Avery account, you can apply that saved “project” to any other Avery product.
9) Set the table and set the scene: Avery templates for place cards
Add an extra “wow factor” to your Christmas dinner table with personalized place cards. Personalized place cards not only elevate your table visually but also create a warm, welcoming vibe. Our favorite template is simple and timeless. Perfect for cozy informal table settings.
Pro Tip: Find more place card templates in the Avery template gallery for Christmas cards of all kinds. Simply select tent cards and then browse by size.
10) Most versatile Avery template for Mason jars and candles
