80+ pastel watercolor social media icons

update july 2014: these are currently not available for download. i am hoping to have them available again soon. thanks for your patience!

way back in march, i posted ten sets of social media icons as free downloads. at the time, i mentioned i was working on a set of pastel icons as well. it took me three months to finish them because...well, frankly, i'm a lazy bum.

but, they're here now!
that's all that matters!


get them after the jump!

this time, the icons are a much more manageable 84px square.

each set includes: email, rss, facebook, instagram, twitter, pinterest, goodreads, youtube, blogger, wordpress, flickr, picasa, tumblr, and etsy icons.

update: the coral set now also includes a bloglovin' icon.


here are the colors available:


...and don't forget to check out the original set of watercolor icons:



as always, please let me know if you get any use out of them!
i love to see my downloads in action.

did i miss any big social media outlets?
together with the original set, are there enough color options?

which color is your favorite set?

  2. These are awesome! There are tons tons tons of social media buttons out there but I don't think I've ever seen a good crack at watercolour versions. Thanks for sharing :)

    1. hi zoe! first you need to download the set you want by clicking on the link provided in the post (whichever color you prefer). save them to an online account such as photobucket. once saved, each icon will have its own html code that you can use in your website's coding to display them. if you need more specific info, let me know, and i'll try to find a tutorial. it's hard to explain more precisely in just a comment. :)

  7. Thank you! They're great, been searching for a thorough set of icons and finally found them. They're on my fashion blog now :) I chose the coral set, though I might change the colour later.

  8. I love these. Just downloaded the coral ones for my blog.
    I wondered if there was a bloglovin button available?

    Also I think maybe pale grey might be nice too. <3
    These are perfect though! Thank you!

  9. Hi there! I have been awaiting the addition of the gorgeous pastel versions and have downloaded the coral ones, but I can't figure out how to open them to use! The have downloaded as the file type "File" and I have no idea what program should be used to open them, or if I've done something wrong!

    Please help!

    1. Don't mind me, I figured it out - the file extension was missing, so I added .zip and was good to go! Can't wait to update my blog with these beauties!

      Thanks so much xo

    2. thank you for letting me know! i fixed the problem and it should be a one-click download again for anyone else interested in the coral set. :)

    3. Love, love, love them! You can see them installed on my blog at www.sarahklass.com.

      Don't s'pose there's any chance of the addition of a little shopping cart one...? That would complete my set that I include in an email newsletter that I send out ;-D

  13. If you are going to sell these, then I highly suggest you take the word FREE off... it's false advertising and it's also rude.

    1. hi *anonymous*, thanks for your suggestion!

      i'm sorry you don't feel i should be paid for my work. i clearly stated the icons were free *for a limited time*. this means: instead of asking for payment upfront, i made them available for over a month at no cost to whoever wanted to download them. after quite a few free downloads, they were finally moved to my etsy shop for a modest fee.

  14. I love your icons ! Do you mind sending me a link to your etsy shop? They are BEAUTIFUL ! I would be happy to purchase them ! Do you do custom work? I think your icons would be a fab fit for my blog!

    Cheers!
