These free Christmas carol art printables are an easy way to celebrate the beauty of your favorite Christmas music.
Nothing says Christmas like Christmas music. And even though I love all kinds of Christmas music, to me there is nothing like the classic Christmas carols I’ve been singing since childhood.
So finding a way to incorporate some of those beautiful classic songs into my Christmas décor as Christmas carol art is a mega win for me.
Here in the South where I live, thrift stores and estate sales are full of old church hymnals. And guess what you can find in pretty much any hymnal? That’s right – Christmas carols!
I think music itself is beautiful. And no, this time I’m not talking about listening to music. I think music looks really beautiful – as in the notes and bars and all that technical stuff.
So I decided to take an old hymnal, choose a few favorite songs, and make some beautiful new Christmas art printables.
I chose two of my favorite Christmas carols, Silent Night and Joy to the World, and added the song title front and center in a beautiful script font.
I created each printable in three different colors of lettering – black, red, and gold glitter. You can choose your favorite version, print it out, and pop it in a frame for some quick and easy Christmas art.
Or if you want to make a bigger statement, I have step-by-step instructions below for printing an oversized version with an extra bit of pizazz.

Oversized Christmas Carol Art
As much as I love these Christmas prints simply printed out and popped in a frame, I had a different idea in mind. So I created an oversized version with a big of extra sparkle.

For my extra large Christmas carol art, I printed my carols as engineering prints at Staples.
I just uploaded them online, had them printed as 18” x 24” engineering prints, and picked them up at my local store the next day.
The pair was less than $4. (Talk about a steal!)
I created a version of the printables with light gray lettering for this project. Engineering prints generally come in black and white and using light gray lettering makes it easy to add any color you want after printing.
You could also just print out the black and white version as an engineering print and be done.
But I really wanted to add some shine. So once I had my engineering prints in hand, I used a gold Sharpie paint pen to color in the letters.
It added just the right amount of glam.
Once they were finished, I popped mine into frames.
The awesome part about using prints like these as seasonal décor is there is nothing to store. When Christmas is over, just stick some other art or photos in front of them in their frame until Christmas rolls around again.
Which means you get gorgeous Christmas décor for less than $5 and with nothing to store in Christmas bins. And that is a major win in my book.
And if you’d rather just have some plain printable Christmas carols without the added lettering, I’ve got those for you as well. You can download nine different printable Christmas carols right here.
