Happy December! Or should I just go ahead and say Merry Christmas? Like many, this is my most favorite time of the year! I love cold nights, warm fires, hot chocolate, and of course, time with family. So, I’m sharing a FREE Christmas printable to revel in the Christmas spirit.
I actually enlarged the black and white printable, printed it out, and transferred it to black craft paper (using this method from this tutorial except I just use a pencil instead of chalk because I am using paper and not wood). Then, I taped the craft paper around a canvas painting in my living room, hung lights and garland, and TA-DA! It’s officially Christmas time.
How to Enlarge the Print to make a Poster
Use the settings above to change the size of your printable. It’s originally 8×8 inches. My canvas that I am wrapping the craft paper around is 30×30 inches, so I enlarged this to 400%. I just map out how big I want it to be by counting blank sheets of paper and then playing with the Tile Scale Percentage until I get to my ideal size. Then, you print, cut, and tape your poster together. Follow this tutorial that I mentioned above to transfer the design to paper and paint or fill in with a gel marker or metallic sharpie.
