How to Use Festive Icons and Graphics on Your Website

Now that you’ve got a selection of holiday icons and graphics to choose from, it’s time to put them into action.

Here are a few ways to get the most out of your festive icons and graphics:

Swap Out Your Website’s Header

One of the easiest and most effective ways to give your site a holiday makeover is by changing out the header image.

Choose an eye-catching holiday graphic that will grab visitors’ attention and immediately draw them in. Place it at the top of your homepage, sales page or any other page you want to dress up for the holidays.

Create CTA Buttons

Holiday-themed call to action (CTA) buttons can also be used to draw attention to various sales, deals or offers you have going on during the holidays.

Choose an icon or graphic that is relevant to whatever it is you’re promoting and use it as part of the button. When building your CTA buttons, be sure to use bright colors to help them stand out on the page.

Add Holiday-Themed Banners

Add a Holiday Background

To really get into the holiday spirit, you can even add a festive background image to your website.

Choose an image with some wintery elements, like snowflakes or holly berries and set it as the backdrop for your site. This will provide a fun splash of color and make sure visitors know that you are in the holiday spirit!

Use Holiday Graphics in Pop-Ups

Pop-ups are another great way to draw attention to special offers or sales. You can use a holiday graphic as part of the pop-up design, as well as festive colors and messaging.
