This December set of wallpapers has been really fun to put together...and it wraps up our entire year of free device wallpapers that we started back in January. I do apologize for not getting these published earlier this month, but the Christmas printable series ended up being a bit more involved than I had originally anticipated. But, since December starts tomorrow, I suppose we're still a bit timely, right?

And of course, I have to give my usual speech about this wallpaper series we started almost a year ago in January. I love that this monthly series now exists. It's always one of main highlights to create these pretties. And as I've been saying this fall, I am planning to bring this digital wallpaper series back in to the new year, as well, along with a new Facebook timeline series. I am certainly not ready for monthly goodies to be finished.

December Desktop Wallpaper for All Devices

You can see the designs for this month's wallpapers below, in all of their Christmasy festiveness. Just a reminder that the calendar versions are only available for the computer and tablet versions of the wallpapers, due to their details and such.

iPad Wallpaper Designs
Your tablet never looked so festive!

Desktop Calendar Designs
The calendar is great as a quick-reference tool, especially on computers (that's where I keep mine).

And who can resist a classic holiday quote?

And the blank versions are perfect if you have a lot of icons or apps on your home screen or desktop. It has a nice open space to house all of those goodies.

As I mentioned above, this monthly desktop wallpaper series (which was brand new to I Should Be Mopping the Floor for 2019) has not only become a favorite of mine, it's also a reader-loved series, as well. If you haven't had the chance yet, make sure you also check out the January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, SeptemberOctober, and November versions of these wallpaper designs. Here's hoping you enjoy this new holiday edition, too, with all of its fun and festive touches.

How to Download onto an iPad or iPhone 

  • The tablet and phone designs can be used on any make and model of device, but I specifically get asked about downloading onto iPads and iPhones, so I am sharing that information here. These are my own simple tips for doing just that (the method I use is sort of cheating, but the fact that it's super easy makes that jussssst fine). 
  • Before I start the process on my phone or tablet, I download my particular phone's (or tablet's) wallpaper design onto my actual computer (download links are listed below for you). 
  • I take the download on my computer and email it as an attachment to myself (I use Gmail and it allows me to email to the same address I'm sending from). 
    • If you'd prefer to skip this emailing yourself process, you'll need to download the Dropbox app on your iPhone or iPad (I provide all of the download links for these wallpaper designs within Dropbox for this very reason). 
    • I like to send readers to a nice tutorial on this Dropbox downloading method here on the iDownload Blog. But, again, if you'd like to avoid that, just email yourself the design from your computer and open the email on your phone, like I do. Then, follow the below steps: 
  • Open that email that you sent yourself with the wallpaper attachment on your device's mail app. 
  • At the bottom of your email, it will say "Tap to Download". Go ahead and do just that.

Downloading on your tablet.
  • Tap that image you just downloaded within your email (it will appear at the bottom of the email). The above image (pictured left) is what you should see. 
  • Tap the square box outline with the upward arrow in the bottom left corner of your screen (labeled as 1 in the above image).
  • After you've tapped that box, the screen pictured above right should appear for you. Scroll up just slightly and tap 'Save Image' (labeled as 2 in the above image). Your design should now be saved to your device.
  • Press your Home key/button. Now, head to Settings>Wallpaper>Choose a New Wallpaper.
  • On my own phone, my images save automatically to my Camera Roll (I *think* this is the default on iOS devices like iPhones and iPads). 
  • I then select Camera Roll and find the wallpaper that I downloaded. If your device saves elsewhere, you'll need to check that spot for the download, instead.
  • You can set this new wallpaper design to your lock screen, your home screen, or go a little wild and do both. It'll be a fabulously fallish time on your device!
  • That *should* hopefully do the trick for you. Let me know if you have any issues regarding this method.
