Are you looking for creative Christmas card photo ideas this year? Giving custom Christmas cards is so much more fun when you know the recipients will appreciate the time and effort you took to be creative. While producing a fun Christmas card photo may seem easy in theory, you may find that it is harder than you anticipated to figure out a creative way to pose. That is why we put together this fun list of Christmas card photo ideas that will make your card stand apart from the rest.
This Christmas card photo can be a bit tricky to recreate, and should be limited to families with kids older than four or five. Beginning with the biggest and strongest person in the family, stand in a seated position with your back against a wall in a hallway. Have the next strongest person stand on your thighs in a seated position with their back against the opposite wall. Continue this pattern until all family members are standing on each other’s legs and creating a human “tree”. The smallest person at the top of the tree should hold up a star. Make the photo as festive as possible with Santa hats, Christmas lights and Christmas ornaments.
Planning to announce the expected arrival of a new little one in your Christmas cards this year? Pose the family as usual, but wrap a bow around the waist of the new mother-to-be and write the words “best gift ever” or similar words on the shirt with bold marker. If you’ve already had a new baby, have your Christmas card double as a birth announcement.
