How to make your own Christmas calligraphs with DIY calligraphists

You’ve probably seen these festive doodle art pieces before, but have you ever wanted to try your hand at making your own?

This DIY tutorial will show you how.

Read more of this storyThe calligraphies are hand drawn on a canvas and then covered with paper.

The art pieces are hand cut from cardboard, and then they’re decorated with red, white and blue letters.

This will give them a festive feel, and the calligraphist then applies a wax sealant to the calligraphic.

Next comes the decorations.

This is where you’ll want to experiment with different types of decoration, including different colours, patterns and sizes.

We love the glittery ones we saw at The Book Shop in London.

It’s a great way to get a festive feeling.

Finally, you have the calliper.

This comes in many different shapes, sizes and styles, and it can be made from cardboard or even just cardboard.

We loved this adorable and quirky card from Etsy called The Littlest Bunny, and this cute card by the artist at Etsy called Happy Birthday.

If you want something that will really make your day, then we recommend making your very own Christmas ornament by using a card or even a scrap of cardboard from your desk.

Once you’ve finished, you’re left with these beautiful calligraphys, but what if you want to decorate it yourself?

Well, here’s how.
