DIY Holiday Ornaments With This FREE Lettering Guide
Make holiday yours this year with one-of-a-kind ornaments. Of course, we love DIYing here at Brit + Co. But that’s because the best part of DIYing your own ornaments for the holiday is that you can get super custom.
For this tutorial, we’re going to start with some of our favorite holiday sayings. So get ready to learn how to write them out in style. All you need is our FREE downloadable fauxligraphy lettering guide!
What’s fauxligraphy? It’s calligraphy using just markers (rather than ink and nibs). It’s a technique that makes it SO easy to achieve that fancy lettering style that everyone loves!
Our downloadable lettering guide features three festive lettering styles that you can mimic. Plus, it includes instructions to create your own holiday ornaments (like the ones below!).
What do you need to start your DIY? Here’s everything you’ll need to complete this holiday project:
- Our FREE lettering guide
- Tracing paper
- Metallic pens
- Black pens
- Round ornaments (white, clear or assorted colors)
Plus, if you need to brush up on your creative lettering skills, we have a class for that! Take our fun Fauxligraphy: Pen Calligraphy online class today.
In under an hour, you’ll master the techniques you’ll need to create a unique lettering style. And don’t worry, you’re handwriting doesn’t need to be perfect! Taught by Alyssa Thiel, she’ll teach you how to add your handwriting on all kinds of surfaces. Just think of all the handmade gifts you’ll be able to make. Coffee mugs, totes, throw pillows and more!
