This DIY modern Christmas wall hanging is not your Grandma’s wall hanging (cute and festive as it is!).
I love holiday decor that works with your home decor and not against it! This DIY modern Christmas wall hanging combines natural textures with a modern typeface (a free Google font titled “Plaster”). The final result is a beautiful piece of wall art you’ll debate not stashing away with the other holiday decor come the new year!

How to Make A Christmas Wall Hanging
For this wall hanging, I took a cheap canvas drawstring bag from the dollar store and cut away the sides and bottom seams, leaving the topstitched seam for the drawstring. I then removed the string and replaced it with a wooden dowel.
If you’re also in Canada, I found the canvas bag in the Christmas aisle at Dollarama.
Next, to make the stencil, use your Cricut cutting machine to cut the free SVG design from sticky-backed contact paper or vinyl. This creates a stencil that can be stuck onto the canvas and allows for cleanly painted lines.
I was able to create this bronze paint color by mixing a touch of red acrylic paint into some gold acrylic paint.
Lastly, I finished the wall hanging off by tying on some naturally hand-dyed ribbon from The Maple Den (this ribbon is truly luxurious!) and a few mini Christmas ornaments.
Every day this week on the blog will be an easy DIY project for the holidays with fun typography – using free Google fonts that are perfect for the holidays! Filling your home with words reminding you of Christmas carols and bible passages will put you into the holiday spirit every time you see them! This DIY modern Christmas wall hanging used the free Google font titled “Plaster”.

Good News. Great Joy.
“Good News. Great Joy.” is a nativity reference taken from Luke 2:8-11:
“And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
