Free Vintage Christmas Angels Clip Art

Updated on October 30, 2014

It could be argued that the most predominant symbols of a secular Christmas are Santa Claus and Christmas trees. But if you're looking for clip art that bridges the gap between the secular and more traditional, religious images; angels are perfect. They can be interpreted to have great spiritual meaning for those who are so inclined. And they can also be regarded as sweet, non-threatening imagery by people who don't embrace the holiday's religious framework.

Angels also range from joyful pranksters to serious messengers, so there's something for everyone. You might even say your choice of Christmas angel clip art says a lot about how you view the holiday. Are you a happy-go-lucky angel type? Or do you think angels are serious and should be portrayed that way? Fortunately, it doesn't matter for the purposes of this page, because there are all types of vintage angels for you to download. (Please read the Terms of Use below for usage guidelines.)

The Question of Angels

Ironically, many people who say they've seen angels say they don't look much like the vintage Christmas angels on this page. I wonder if those who do see more traditional versions of angels have predisposed "filters" in their brains for seeing them that way? Or do angels appear in the forms that we would most expect so we would recognize them? And for those who believe in angels but say they've never seen them, could it be they're appearing to them all the time but they just come in forms they don't expect. Lofty questions!

      You're welcome, BizzyMuse. I'm sure your grandmother will love it if you make her something with these images! I'm always curious to know how people use the clip art I post, so thanks for sharing.

      Hi, Pat. The angels are pretty, aren't they? I wish I could say I painted them myself. BTW, I sent you an e-mail a few days ago, because we're from the same neck of the woods. If you got it and just didn't have time/didn't want to respond, no prob. But I thought I'd let you know in case it never arrived. If that's the case, you can just leave a comment here or shoot me an e-mail through the link above in the sidebar.
