These free printable circle templates and outlines ranging from 0.5 inches to 10 inches will save you precious time and money for your crafting projects.
Whenever I’m doing crafts with my kids, I always find myself grabbing random objects (like mugs, cups, or bottle cups) to trace circles.
While I love doing crafts with my kids, most of the time, I can’t even find a circle-shaped object in the size that I need. And even then, when I do find one, sometimes the lines that I draw come out wonky (because some objects, like bottle caps have ridges).
As a result, I figured that it would be a good idea to create my own circle templates to help all the people who have found themselves in the same situation. These printables are completely FREE to download and print.
Not only will these circle patterns save the time and hassle of finding a round object to trace, but they’re also incredibly easy to download and print.
These circle printables come in a variety of assorted sizes, ranging from 0.5 inches to 10 inches, making them perfect for almost every craft or project!
For example, they’re great for stenciling, art, bulletin boards, and more! Truth be told – their potential is only limited by your imagination. Use them in your everyday life with ease and print them out as many times as needed.

Extra Large Circle Shape to Cut Out
These extra-large circle templates are perfect for bigger crafts. For example, if you’re trying to decorate a bulletin board, these will definitely come in handy! You can write fun facts on them and post them up.
Or, you can print the circle outline on colorful paper and then cut them out to make an elegant abstract background that kids will love.
10-inches Printable Circle Template
The printer papers you typically buy are 8.5″x11″, so this extra-large circle template will not fit on a regular printer paper. You need to use paper that is at least 11″x17″ for this 10″ circle template, or the circle will be cut off!
10-inches Half-Circle Template
In case you don’t have access to 11″x17″ paper, I got you! This 10″ half-circle template fits on regular printer paper. You can either trace half of the circle and then flip the template to trace the other half and complete a full circle, or you can simply fold the paper in half, trace and cut out the half circle, and unfold to reveal a full circle.
