Alrighty, let the Christmas party begins with some of the best Christmas filters that you can use right now!

Santa Christmas Twerking filter

Santa Christmas Nose Twerking Filter

Santa Tummy TWRK is a Christmas filter where you can see Santa belly dancing on your own noise. Inspired by the popular nose twerking Instagram filters, this TWRK Christmas camera effect will make everyone who sees you using it smile. A great way to surprise your friends with a funny Xmas effect.

Raise your eyebrows to make Santa Claus's eyes appear bigger and move your nose from side to side to make it appear like Santa is belly dancing.  Combine it with some IG or TikTok music for the best results, have fun!

Christmas fireworks show Instagram effect

Christmas & New Year's Eve Fireworks Filters

There are several fireworks effects that I've created, so it's not just one. This includes Christmas Fireworks, Happy New Year, and 2020 Fireworks.

These are all based on roughly the same fireworks display AR effect. There is a rotating text with either "Merry Christmas" or "Happy New Year", which circulates your head with beautiful reflections. The highlight of these filters is a vibrant and gorgeous fireworks display show that takes place right above your head. It's very cinematic and will allow you to create some very eye-catching Christmas greeting video that will stand out from the rest, something very unique and special.

Take a look at this video to see how this Augmented Reality face effect looks like. There are plenty of other variations of it for birthdays, "Let's Party" or just a fireworks effect without any text.

A must-try IG filter for Christmas and one of my favorite ones. This is why I listed it first.

Christmas Snowman Instagram filter

Christmas Snowman Filter

'Christmas Snowman' is an Instagram filter that I've created especially for this Chrismas. It's a puppeteering effect where you control the head, eyes, and mouth of an adorable snowman. It has a Chrismas hat with a "Merry Christmas" writing on it.

I put emphasize to make it very atmospheric so you can feel the cold of the Holiday's winter through it. It has breezing wind sound, snowfall animation, and cool winter background. Put your acting into it and have fun.

Santa throwing gifts Instagram filter

Santa Is Coming Filter

'Santa Is Coming' is a cool Instagram effect. After you tap the screen, Santa appears riding his deer sleigh and throwing gifts towards your head. Once those presents intersect with your head, they bump off it. You can juggle those gifts on your head and it's super fun to do. It's an effect based on the physics from my 'Soccer Head' video game filter. I'm sure you'll enjoy toying around with this one as well.

Christmas gift Instagram camera effect

Christmas Gifts Filter

Christmas Gifts is a selfie face filter for Christmas. This filter renders snow and fog visuals and breezing cold wind sound effects. When you open your mouth the fog comes out of it.

The best part, however, is when you tap the screen. jingle bell sounds will play and a Santa riding his reindeer sleigh will enter the camera view, greeting your viewers with an "Oh, oh, oh..Merry Christmas!" wishes. Then Santa Claus will drop lots of colorful gift boxes from the sky.

Chimney Santa AR face filter

Chimney Santa Filter

Chimney Santa is an adorable and entertaining AR face filter. It positioned a chimney on top of your head with Santa Claus legs popping out. Santa is trying to deliver gifts, but he is stuck inside the Chimney. Open your mouth and you'll see Santa sliding down the chimney, showing his head and body through your mouth. Gifts will also be animated falling, those which Santa Claus wanted to bring to you.

Snowball throwing and Christmas balloons camera effect

Snowball Throw Filter

'Snowball Throw' is a cool selfie camera effect that I want people to use as a digital Christmas greeting card to send to others.

With this filter, you tap on the screen to throw a big snowball onto your face and the snow stays ono it. You can then pose with some silly faces and enjoy sending an original greeting card to friends and family members. Kids will love it, I'm telling you.

Christmas makeup Instagram filter

Christmas Makeup Filter

'Christmas Makeup' is an Instagram effect that renders a beautiful 3D virtual eye makeup on your face. It carries the Christmas theme of course with gorgeous winter glittery look, snowflakes touches, white eyelashes and Santa animated above the right eyebrow. If you are searching for a cool Christmas makeup idea, something original, I think you'll enjoy sharing a video of yourself wearing this effect. Try it out, you won't be disappointed.

Self-gift gift bow AR filter for Xmas

Self Gift Effect

What's the best gift you can give to someone you care about or love? Well, that's YOU. This is exactly what this "Self Gift" filter is all about. Wrapping you with a gorgeous glowy gift bow so you can literally give you self as a present to someone this Xmas. There are a large selection of different ribbon and bows. Tap to choose the one that you want to use. The most amazing one is the one you see in the picture above, a glowing and shiny semi-transparent gift bow. It features a dynamic lighting effect. You really have to try this one out!

Santa Hat & Christmas Tree Effects

'Santa Hat' is an Instagram mask that puts a large cartoony Santa Clause hat on your head. No bells and whistles, but one that can either use alone or alongside other face makeup that you use, I mean, real makeup, not a virtual one.

There is also a cute metallic Christmas tree styled hat that I made as a filter. Check it out when you browse through my filter list on Instagram.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

First of all, I want to thank all of you who follow me and use my IG camera effects, that means a lot to me.

I hope you find those new Xmas Instagram filter fun, amusing and enjoy sharing them with your friends this 2019 holiday season and beyond. Of course, I'll continue working and make more cool effects for Chrismas 2020 and beyond.

Although I won't be in Japan to enjoy the holidays here, I'll probably plan to come back next year. Halloween was a blast and I enjoyed creating filters for it, as well as review other Spark AR creators' effects. I'm sure 2020 will be an even more exciting year, as more people get into learning Spark AR and sharpen up their skills. I am also planning to learn Snapchat Lens development as well. Hopefully, by next year, I'll have some cool Snapchat Lenses for Chrismas to share with you as well.

Follow @wowfilterscom on Instagram to unlock all of those filters and all the other filters developed by WOW! Filters. You'll also get access to all the future effects that I'll develop and get notified when I share stories and posts promoting those new IG AR filters.

Merry Chrismas and happy new year to you all!
