Using PowerPoint for creating Christmas song art
The first time I heard about using powerpoint to create something other than a presentation, my mind was blown. Now, it’s all I ever use to make printables.
The reason it is so much better than Microsoft Word is because of how use friendly it is for moving content around any where on the slide. You have the ability to layer images easily, add text boxes, rotate images and text, and position them anywhere you would like. You can even export the whole presentation or just particular parts of it and you can do this in multiple formats, such as pdf, jpeg, png, mp4, mov, etc.
SUPPLIES YOU NEED:
How to Make your own Christmas wall art
Find the song for your Christmas decor
First, look through the free printable files and find the song you want to use.
Download the free wreath clipart and choose which wreath clipart you like.
In the file drop down menu, select page set up. Change the size of the slides to custom. Make the width 8″ and the height 10.5″. These measurements have worked well for me, but feel free to make adjustments to fit your needs better!
Change the orientation to vertical. Press okay.
Insert the sheet music
Drag and drop the sheet music file that you chose to use for your wall art.
Adjust the size of the image to 10″ by 7.48″
However, if you want to make it a smaller size for a different size frame, this is where you will do so. For example, if you want to make this for a 4×6 frame or 5×7 frame, you will want to make the size just slightly smaller than those measurements.
If you decide to use an different size, do a few black and white test prints until you get it just the right size for your frame.
Add a Christmas decor wreath
Add the wreath you picked out and adjust the sizing to fit to your liking. It can be as big or as small as you want.
I like to make mine mostly centered and allow some room on the left and right edges of the paper because I don’t want any of the art accidentally getting covered up by part of the frame.
Add the text
Pick what type of font you like best. I like a simple but pretty script font. I downloaded a free font called amalya, you can download it here for free to use for personal use. Amalya is the font that I use on this project.
Decide what part of the song you want to display in your text. You can choose any part of the song. It doesn’t have to be the title. It can be a portion that is your favorite or is meaningful to you in some way. This is why I love making my own art. It is customizable and makes the decoration have meaning behind it.
Time to print
Personally, if I plan to frame it, I print it one regular printer paper. Once it is in the frame, no one will notice. However, if you plan to hang these using clothes pins or some other creative display, it might be better to use a more sturdy or durable paper.
Trim the edges
After it is done printing, use scissors to trim the edges to make it the correct size to fit into your frame. You could also use a paper trimmer like one of these. Unless I’m cutting multiple items, I find that scissors are easier.
My husband, on the other hand, would disagree. He prefers a paper cutter for any type of straight cuts.
Line it up in your frame
Place the art in the frame and make sure that it fits well and is adjusted correctly. If one edge is a little shorter, than the size of the frame, it might be necessary to place a small amount of tape to hold it into place.
Now it’s time to find the perfect place to put your new Christmas decor.
Place it on the living room bookshelf, fire place mantle, or bedroom dresser, the possibilities are endless!
Now get ready, because you are sure to have people asking you where you bought your newest Christmas decoration.
