5 Free Christmas Chalkboard Printables to Deck your Halls!

I had some more fun over the weekend playing around with some Chalkboard Effects.
Are you planning on “Decking your Halls” soon?
Well, I’m sure most of us are…so here are 5 {FREE} printable versions for you to use in your home or give as gifts.  These were made with love & time, so please understand that they are for your personal use only.

I attached these 2 below, so you can see them a little more close up.
*Note:  my watermark will not appear in the downloadable file.*
Below you’ll find the printable files.  You may print from these or download the image(s).  It’s entirely up to you.  They were all uploaded as a 8×10 size & designed using Picasa.
To see how I create my Chalkboard Effect with fonts & ding bats for free, go here!
It’s my new favorite pass time.  (Not that I have time to pass, mind you. :)
Can’t believe it’s the holiday season!  Hope you enjoy these printables as you Deck your Halls!!!
Wishing you all a blessed Holiday season!

    I’d love to order this through shutterfly or similar instead of running all my ink. Shutterfly says the resolution is too low? Does anyone have experience printing through a company instead of their home printer? I’d love to hear any tips!

    Kellie…thank you very much these prints are fabulous. When I was a little girl in parochial school all the Nuns would write “Glory to the Newborn King” across the blackboard on the last day of school before Christmas vacation. You took me back in time today.

    To ‘The Young Retiree’ – I’ve put downloaded prints on my flash drive before and have had them printed @ OfficeMax, Staples etc. Sometimes they say they can’t do it but it seems to be the clerk’s choice and the prices have varied from $1 to $4…only ask when they are not busy for better luck.

    Happy Holidays Everyone, Barbara

    I love these! I have a chalkboard in our dining room that I like to change out with the seasons and holidays so this will definitely give me some inspiration! Pinning it now! :))

  4. says

    Was looking for something Christmas religious inspiration to write on my chalkboard when I came across you post. Don’t think I can print as well as computer generated fonts but you sure gave me some ideas! Thanks!

  5. says

    I love these! Thank you so much for sharing! But… What am I doing wrong? I am usually good at downloading things like this! I hit the arrow on the boxes above, and have saved these to my computer. However, when I went to order the 8×10’s at Shutterfly, it said the resolution wasn’t good enough. I could only get it to accept 5×7. Could someone help me out here?

  6. says

    I uploaded them at Walgreens and it said the resolution was too low. I decided to print one out just to see if it was pixalated, but it printed out just fine. I think if you ordered 8x10s they would look great.

    • says

      thank you for sharing this info! YES, many people have mentioned that it says the resolution was too low, but Walgreens can print them out perfectly for you. i, personally printed them out on my home printer & they did just fine!

  7. Debi says

    I have been trying for over 5 minutes to download these. It just keeps saying loading. Does anyone have any insight that will help me get these?


    • says

      hopefully by now you were able to download them. sometime i find that if i hit refresh it will help.
      sorry for the trouble. glad you stopped by!

  8. Jennifer says

    OOPS!! Accidentally posted this on your other post…
    These are absolutely amazing! Thanks so much for sharing! I’ve been to the other page, and downloaded all of the fonts that were listed there (and Things We Said from above), but was hoping you might want to share the fonts used for each of the words “tidings”, “comfort”, and “repeat”. Thanks again!

    These are beautiful and I am addicted too! I just learned to kind of play with the chalkboard effect in Picasa a few weeks back and have made some free printable gift tags with these tricks (http://christyscustoms.blogspot.com/2012/11/christmas-tags-chalkboard-effect.html). We just ordered Photoshop Elements so I am excited to see what tools it has as well! I LOVE how you can download straight from your post… I have so much to learn :) Thanks for all of the great inspiration!

    These are super cute, but 612×792 isn’t an appropriate resolution to print an 8×10 correctly. They aren’t going to be crystal clear at that res, no matter what you do or where you send them. :o\

  11. says

    Love it! Really into making these since I just got photoshop! What fonts did you use for “Repeat the sounding joy” and “Glory to the Newborn King”?

  12. Jenny says

    Hi Kelli…I love these! Can you tell me the name of the font you used on Christmas in the first one..it’s also on glory and king. Thank you!

  13. says

    These are SO beautiful!!!! I can’t believe they are free downlaods! Awesome! Thank you!!!
    Any chance you would sell a higher quality copy? I have a HUGE wall and can never find anything perfect for it–these would work!

  14. Tess N says

    LOVE these! I can see why you’re enjoying doing them. Thanks so much for sharing your work and talent. I am going to put one by my desk here at home. :-)

  15. Marquita says

    Thanks for posting
    I am seeing these chalkboard prints and love them but I am not understanding how I can use them.
    Do I print them with my printer download or take them to a printer to enlarge
    Want to do one and put up on my fireplace Thanks for your help.

  16. Melissa says

    Thank you for sharing these with us. I found this through “A Cultivated Nest” and “Coffeeteabooksandme”. We so appreciate your talent.

  17. Erin says

    Hi Kellie, these are so cute. I’ve never download anything, what kind of paper do you use to print them out on? Also, if I may ask, how did you learn how to do this? I want to learn how to make my own printables, but I do have the first clue as to how. I don’t know what kind of program to buy, etc.,

  18. Shannon A says

    Thank you SO much for sharing these gorgeous printables! I can’t wait to use them for a party I’m having this weekend. What size did you print yours for your Christmas mantel this year? Thanks again! ~Shannon :)

    • says

      oh gosh, i’ve already forgotten the measurements. it was the 2nd option in size. not the smallest poster. hope that helps! have fun at your party.

  19. says

    Love these printables and thanks for offering them free to us bloggers. I will be using one in my Christmas mantel decoration and will give you credit when posted and let you know. They are really nice. I took an 8×10 to Office Max and they enlarged it to 11×14 and a black and white copy cost 22¢. Happy with the results.
    Christmas Blessings.

    Thank you so much for sharing these great printables. I am planning on framing them and making them gifts for family next year. Good for someone on fixed income. Take care.

  21. says

    thanks for sharing- I love finding things like this to print for my daughter to put in her locker :)
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you!

  22. Margie UK says

    Hi Kellie
    Found these just too late for Christmas but I’m following you now so I will be able to see your lovely work. I’m going to save the chalkboards for next year though as I think they’re great!

  23. Lauren says

    Dear Nest of Posies: I wanted to download these chalkboard signs but the links to download are not on the page any longer. Can you please help me to be able to download these? I am following your blog now so I won’t miss anything else! Thanks so much for helping me.

  24. Susan says

    I realize your printables are for personal use only – but I stumbled on your site looking for chalkboard fonts etc to purchase for commercial use. Do you sell your designs on etsy or someplace like that?

  25. Kelli D says

    I love these – thanks for creating and sharing.

    Question: Is there any way to re-size these to print to fit card a card front for an A2 sized card (5.5 x 4.5)?

  26. Marie says

    I just came across these printables and they seem to be gone. I really love them. Is there any way I can get them?

  27. Stacy says

    Just came across your website. Found it through pinterest. I LOVE your printables! Thank you for being nice enough to share!

  28. Kristy says

    These are precious! Can you tell me what the font is that is used in the word “Christmas, tidings and Glory” please? I have been looking for this font for a long time and can’t seem to find it. Thanks so much in advance for your help!
