It’s the most wonderful time of the year, you guys! I don’t know about you, but I’m already getting in the holiday spirit drinking my peppermint mochas and scrambling to figure out what I’m going to do for this year’s Christmas cards.
I’ve teamed up with some of my calligrafriends from around the Internet to bring you 11 holiday-themed hand lettering projects. Each of us has created an awesome free hand lettering worksheet, hand lettering tutorial, or hand-lettered printable to share with you!
You can find my tutorial below and at the end of this post you’ll find links to all 11 tutorials created by these talented ladies!

For our hop, I’ve created a free downloadable lettering practice sheet with 4 ways to handletter the words happy holidays. Since this is such a popular phrase for the holidays, you can use these lettering worksheets to practice it and start adding it to your cards, holiday decorations, or anything else you can dream up! The styles I’ve included in the worksheet are what I call Prim & Proper, Casual, Funky Block and Print.
These holiday lettering worksheets are formatted specifically for Tombow Fudenosuke Calligraphy Pens, but will also work with other small to medium sized brush pens. If you want to save paper and not have to print out a ton of copies, just print one and then use some Strathmore Tracing Paper on top for your actual lettering.
I love doing this because the tracing paper is so smooth and is a perfect paper choice for your brush pens. If you’re lettering directly on the paper, I recommend using HP Premium Choice Laserjet paper to print the worksheets. If you want to know more about the papers I recommend for brush pen practice, you’ll want to spend a little quality time with this post.
What I love about lettering worksheets is that even though you’re tracing, you’re still developing your own style throughout. That’s why it’s really important to me when I create worksheets to leave blank space for you to practice on your own.
This holiday lettering worksheet has the words in gray for you to trace, then blank lines for you to practice on your own. If you like this free holiday lettering worksheet, you may want to check out some of the others in my shop!
