CHRISTMAS ART

Christmas art comes in a variety of forms and styles. Some Christmas art can be purchased while other, more memory filled and lasting Christmas art, can be made by you or your loved ones. Finally, the acquisition of Christmas art can be an activity that lasts the whole year, not just the holiday season.

Most retail home stores incorporate Christmas art into their selection of posters and prints available throughout the year. The best time to begin searching for that special piece of Christmas art for a great gift or to be proudly displayed in your own home is, believe it or not, just before Halloween. Most stores now begin offering Christmas art for sale in early to mid-fall. You can find great winter scene prints and posters, pictures depicting the first Christmas, as well as Christmas art made of ceramics like snowmen, Santa Claus and nativity scenes.

If you and your family are more artistically inclined, some great Christmas art projects can be developed any time of the year. By doing a thorough internet search or watching your favorite home shows right around the holiday season, you will find a plethora of Christmas art projects to choose from. When all else fails, most arts and crafts stores offer Christmas art sets all year round, and the skilled employees of these stores can direct you toward a Christmas art project suitable for your level of experience, or the age of your children.

To garner a great classic Christmas art collection, spend the spring, summer, and fall months antiquing. Often there is a treasure trove of classic Christmas art gems hiding in antique shops from Nantucket to Vancouver. Many families have found antique Santa Claus figurines, antique sleds to be decorated with wreaths and holly, as well as hip, kitsch Christmas art objects from the 1940’s, 50’s, and 60’s, all in antique stores and second hand shops.

Christmas art is a wonderful way to decorate your home, and the acquisition and construction of Christmas art makes for a great year-round hobby.
