Two years ago, I saw these free printables and thought how fun it would be to add them to Christmas decor.
What's really amazing, besides Alice's wonderful art is that I remembered I wanted to do this when I had the time. So many plans get forgotten...can you relate?
These cute and slightly quirky cars are available for free here from Alice Wingerden from her Thoughts from Alice blog.
She is using them as part of an adorable little hand drawn village. I just was smitten with the cars, especially this one. Sometimes I have trouble with sizing when printing from a download. You made need to futz a bit to get the size you want. These were printed in the portrait mode and are 7 by 3.5 inches.
I printed on plain old cardstock and then used water colors to add the little bit of green, brown, and yellow. I also used a sharpie to bring back the blacks that didn't print as well (running out of ink) or where the water color paint dimmed the black. This step really wasn't necessary though.
I cut a strip of paper and glued to the back to make a quick easel so they will stand. Glue, fold, fold, and glue the other end. I think you can figure it out by the picture.
This one is bigger at 9 x 4.5 inches. I printed in in the landscape mode.
Take note: I downloaded and printed from the jpeg files she shared, not the PDFs. The PDF files have the cars with a house on the same page. The jpegs are individual.
Aren't they just so cute?! They would make great tags too if you printed them smaller. Thank you so much Alice!!
