Christmas PFP! No one knows how this started, but since the early 19th century, many of England’s pubs have adopted the tradition of serving Mulled Wine on Christmas Eve as a warming drink to ward off the cold winter chill. This tradition has spread around the globe, and nowadays, you can find delicious Mulled Wine recipes just about everywhere during the holiday season. So grab your Christmas PFP and get ready to be transported to another time and place with this warming holiday beverage!
What is Christmas PFP?
A Christmas PFP is a picture or video (usually of the person creating it) that has been pieced together from various places. This type of image or video can be found in many places on the internet, but one popular place for Christmas pictures is Tumblr. There are different ways to make a Christmas PFP, but most people who create these images use Photoshop. A lot of time and effort goes into making a good Christmas pfp because you have to find pictures and videos that go well with each other and then combine them in Photoshop. It’s not just about the final product either – people often think about what they want their final image to say before making it.
How to make your own Christmas profile picture
The first step in creating your Christmas profile picture is picking a template. We have many templates available, but you can also create your own. After that, it’s up to you what you want to put on the profile picture. You can add anything from snowflakes and Santa Clause to reindeer and presents! To finish your Christmas photo, we recommend adding some holiday music as the soundtrack.
What you need
1) a piece of paper in the shape of a Christmas tree.
2) green felt for pine needles.
3) yellow felt for the sun.
4) gold or brown felt for the sta.
, 5) 1 red bead for an ornament.
6) Be beads and sequins to decorate the tree with ornaments and icicles.
- Cut out a sheet of paper into an upright triangle. Fold it in half diagonally so that you have two symmetrical sides. Draw 2 trees on one side. Draw three trees on one side and four on the other to make a symmetrical pattern.
- Design your Christmas PFP in Photoshop, adding a background and text if desired.
2. Upload it to Canva (for free) or the photo editing tool of your choice.
3. Find an appropriate size for social media by copying and pasting the image onto a blank canvas and using the resize option to shrink it to either 1200x1200px or 1600x1600px, 2000x2000px, or 2400x2400px for Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, and LinkedIn respectively.
4. Create social media posts in advance with links back to your content on Canva, or upload your finished PFPs as is for more spontaneous sharing moments!
Tips and tricks
One of the easiest ways to create a Christmas-themed image is using Photoshop or a similar program. Some suggestions for getting started are given below:
- Choose your background color, and then use the paintbrush to cover it with snowflakes, stars, and other winter shapes. The more layers you add, the better!
- Add a text layer to write Merry Christmas in your chosen font. This can be white text on top of a black background or vice versa.
- If you’re feeling creative, try adding something else, like Santa Claus or reindeer, into the scene! You can add people walking through snowdrifts to make it feel more alive and cozy.
I designed this Christmas PFP to show some detail in the design. I started with the background and added lights, ornaments, presents, and snowflakes. The final result is a Christmas scene that you can use for your company’s holiday cards or social media posts.
