Today I am going to share a template and tips on How To Make Santa Footprints with my Santa’s Footprint Stencil SVG Template. Twas the night before Christmas when all through the house not a creature was stirring not even a mouse! We all know and love the tale don’t we?
I have often wondered why the boys never questioned why I never got cross at Santa and Peter the Elf for making a mess around the house? Leaving mince pie crumbs and snowy footprints in the lounge!
Snowy footprints in the Christie household are considered an illegal event. As is mud, sand and astro-turf balls. Don’t get me started on crumbs on the kitchen worktop.
But this time of year its ok relax the rule book a bit and let Santa and Elves mess with our spotless homes in the hunt for a little Christmas Magic. Also check out my Santa Treat Tray SVG.
How To Make Santa’s Footprints With My Free SVG Stencil?
Peter The Elf and Santa are still visitors in the Christie house and woe betide anyone suggest the contrary. Yes, the boys think I am ever so slightly bonkers. But secretly love the festivities and magic.
Because the truth is, the magic is in the heart. The only way we lose the magic of Christmas is by allowing it to slip away. In our house we still have calendars and Christmas Eve boxes packed with goodies and there is always a chocolate Santa.
Magical touches such as capturing Santa on video or creating phone-calls from the North Pole, inspired me to create free downloadable Santa Footprints template.
Because It wouldn’t feel like Christmas Without Santa? This gave me a great idea, you see Santa’s footprint is not always that easy to come by. Thus I have created a free printable Santa’s footprint stencil SVG to cut out and use.

Cutting Your Santa’s Footprint Stencil SVG
If your cutting mat looses its stickiness this will affect the quality of cut. Also make sure your mat is in good condition, this is vital for cutting intricate cuts.
Additionally, set the material and cut pressure correctly to match whatever materials you’re cutting to guarantee a clean cut. If you have any problems cutting check the mat, pressure and material settings as generally this is where the problem will lie.
What Do I Use To Create My Santa’s Footprints?
To create my footprints I used flour with glitter in it, however talcum powder with glitter also works well. I found the fake snow quite hard to manipulate.
Use a colander and gently shake the flour over the Santa footprint templates to get an even coverage before gently lifting away the template.
And for a little more Christmas magic make reindeer food out of porridge oats and glitter and leave as a gift from the Elves on Christmas Eve morning. It’s such a magical moment when you sprinkle it your front lawn, and watch it sparkle in the moonlight to guide the reindeers on a dark cold Christmas Eve.
