If you have decided on the idea of decorating your home or office with a snowy Christmas theme, then we have some resources for you here at Printable Haven.

Snow decor can look chic and sophisticated. If done correctly, snowy white decor can create a tranquil Christmas atmosphere in your home or office. Using white or cream accents can offset darker colors that you may have in furniture or wall paint. This can bring all of the attention on your decor and make you seem more prepared for this holiday season.

Below are some items and ideas that can inspire you to create the perfect snowy atmosphere.

How to Use a Handwritten Font

Wonder what creative things you can do with handwritten fonts? Here are just a few ideas I’ve thought up to help boost your creativity!

1. CREATE YOUR OWN PRINTABLES Not everyone has access to Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, so getting your hands on handwritten fonts can be a way to make your art printables seem more self-made. Take a look at this printable made with my own font “Olivia” and some bird graphics I made in Adobe Illustrator. You can of course make the same printable in Microsoft Word or GimpShop.

2. CREATE YOUR OWN LABELS Handwritten fonts would be especially suitable for making custom labels on jars, containers, and planners. There are a plethora of resources online for circular, oval or rectangular templates for overlaying your own graphics and writing. Here is a great source for templates: http://www.avery.com/avery/en_us/Templates-%26-Software

3. PARTY INVITATIONS Create custom party invitations for different occasions. Handwritten fonts would be the most useful for Easter, Christmas, birthday, and baby shower invitations. You can even send evites through e-mail online without printing a thing!

Creating is always best when you have the right tools! Using a handwritten typeface would make an interesting asset to any final design. After download, test it out on multiple designs and see what works best for you. With that being said, happy creating!
