15+ Free iPad Wallpapers

Do you ever get tired of seeing the same ‘ol boring image on your iPad home screen? I change my iPad wallpaper about once per week because I love to be surrounded by whatever images are inspiring me at the moment.

I spend wayyyy too long searching for beautiful vintage illustrations and patterns on sites like these that offer high resolution images for free personal and commercial use. Here are a few of the beauties I found this week:

I pulled together my favorite free vintage patterns (plus a few of my own creations) that you can pick up as free downloads by clicking on the images. Enjoy!

The first set features 2 different leaf patterns that I created in Procreate. You can pick up all 6 of the color versions as free downloads here.

The rest are patterns I found on the Flickr Commons. Click on each image to go to the download page. (note: some of these may need to be cropped/tilted using the Photos app on your iPad)
