Holiday Scroll Saw Patterns
Holiday Plans November 2, 2012 WoodworkCity 2
We might have posted some of these scroll saw patterns in the past, but we felt it was time to bring them back. Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner and these scroll saw patterns are perfect for the occasion.
It seems like everyone in our neighborhood purchases the snow globe for their front yard and calls it a day. They are getting more elaborate each year, but the neighbors who go “old school” with the saw cutout figures are always the favorites. I have one neighbor who made his own Peanuts characters for his front yard and everything loves them. They really work for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. In fact, we found a terrific site with a passionate builder who created a terrific “how to” to make your own Peanuts inspired yard scene. His PDF plan is 12 pages long and his characters are inspired by the Charlie Brown Christmas special. You could really take these designs and modify them to suit your holiday scene. Click on the image for the direct link to the PDF. If it is ever down, please let us know.
The following patterns have been downloaded thousands of times since we first posted them. This is a simple turkey pattern that you can use as a scroll saw pattern, or as a graphic to enlarge and cut out. Click the image to be taken to the original post. From there, you can print the full sized turkey patterns.
We found an interesting pattern for a basket as well. I am not sure what these baskets are called, but you will recognize the shape. This is really a series of circles with one being larger than the next. I would probably refer to it as a telescoping basket plan. The full pattern can be found by clicking on the image.
Have fun with these holiday scroll saw and patterns.

I tried to click on the image of the Peanuts characters for the holiday scroll saw PDF and it came back with an error.

I am guessing that the owner of the Peanuts trademark had an issue with the likenesses. In any event, the link with the “Peanuts” patterns is no longer available. We did some searching and didn’t find any alternative other than an Etsy shop selling the actual items.
