Printable Christmas Wall Art

When we moved into an apartment that was about half the size of our previous house, made for some creative decorating; especially Christmas decorating which is what I love to do!

We really had no place for a regular nativity set, but there was a blank wall over the TV that was ready for decor! Of course, I jumped onto Pinterest for inspiration and found some printables that were just the thing.

Here is what the final grouping looked like:


When I saw the Nativity silhouettes on Cami Struiksma's blog, You Seriously Made That?!, I knew it would take no effort to print them on cardstock, and frame them. Although they are a bit pixelated when enlarged to 8" x 10", just step back a bit, they seem perfectly fine.  I was fortunate to find the 3 frames in 8-1/2" x 11", so I didn't even need to trim!

I created this flag with a burlap background: (right click on it to save)



and these free printables from The Cottage Market:

All you do is layer the chalkboard-style letter over the flag, print, and then cut out!
Punch holes into the top corners and use twine to string all the letters together.  Tap nails into the wall where the banner will hang. It helps to take a step back to check positioning of the letters. 


I'm so pleased at how this simple, printable wall art turned out!
