Christmas Song Chalkboards – Printable Decor or Gifts

Make your holiday season merry and bright with these fun and beautiful Christmas Song Chalkboards. Free Printables are easy for decor and gift ideas.

 

Christmas Song Chalkboards

Printable Decor or Gifts

 

Music holds a very dear place in my heart, in fact, music makes my heart sing. Luke and I met because I wanted to sing karaoke. And singing was the start of a beautiful relationship.

Once Thanksgiving dinner is over, the Christmas music is playing! And, it doesn’t stop until after New Year. I love to hear it, feel it, sing it, and live it. I’ll even share a little secret, I have been humming and singing Christmas songs for the past few weeks as I worked on these adorable Christmas Song Chalkboards. My daughter caught me a couple of times — chagrin and eye rolling.

Anyway, I have had a marvelous time putting these Christmas printables together for you, and I hope that you will love them as much as I do. They come in several different sizes including a printable sheet of all six designs for making ornaments or gift tags.

Check out my Christmas Song Chalkboard Ornaments DIY tutorial HERE.

Christmas Chalkboards

Christmas Chalkboards Inspire Me

I absolutely love chalk art, and I think the creativity in chalkboards is amazing. Christmastime always brings out the nostalgia in me, so what better way to combine nostalgia and creativity than Christmas Chalkboards.

Back in the Fall, I did a post on Autumn Chalkboards that was a big hit. So, I thought maybe you would all enjoy this Christmas Chalkboard version. As you can see, I had a great time creating the graphic for this post!

I did a lot of searching and collecting on Pinterest. It was hard to chose which chalkboards to include. So please, stop by my Christmas Chalkboards Pinterest Board and view them all.

Follow Life With Lorelai Blog’s board Christmas – Chalkboards on Pinterest.

Let’s take a look at some Christmas Chalkboards…

Autumn Chalkboards

Autumn Chalkboards

Spice-up your Fall decorating with Chalk!

I’m sure you’ve seen the creative chalkboards floating around Pinterest. If not, you should definitely go check it out.

Chalk art has been a tradition around our house for Easter. “The Easter Bunny” would always hop on by, and decorate our driveway with drawings, sayings, and of course… he’d leave behind his bunny footprints. Take a look at this drawing from Eater 2014. (Rory and I had a ton of fun!)

Obviously, the kids LOVE this special surprise each year. I got to thinking that I would like to incorporate chalk art into my seasonal decorating as well by using chalkboards.

Creative thinking can be dangerous and contagious! So, I’ve put together a collection of really cute ideas for Autumn Chalkboards. Have fun with fonts and colors, and incorporate them into your other Fall decorations and vignettes. The chalkboards will be not only a focal point, but a highlight.

 

Autumn Chalkboards:

Simple and to the point.

Isn’t this beautiful all framed and with the added touch of leaves?

Photo found at: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/390335492677604364/

The Emily Bronte quote is one of my all-time favorite Autumn quotations.

A touch of everything that happens in the Fall.

This is one of my favorite chalkboards. Wouldn’t it be lovely sitting on the fireplace mantel? I love how delicate the leaves are.

This is a stunning vignette.

Have another favorite autumn recipe? Try it on a chalkboard!

A beautiful sentiment.

This one put me in the mood for Pumpkin Spice Lattes… LOL

A listing of Fall things… love it.

These creations were collected with Autumn in mind. You can also find design inspiration for Halloween and Thanksgiving specifically, or any season or holiday. Some of these awesome designs are available as PRINTABLES… just in case you don’t want to attempt these yourself, or plain don’t have the time.

I hope you have enjoyed this collection of Autumn Chalkboards. If you’d like to see more of my chalkboards collection, check out my Chalkboards Pinterest Board!
