Printable vintage hymns for Easter are perfect for Lent, Palm Sunday, and Easter masses and church services as well as DIY Easter projects and custom holiday wall art.
Many readers already know that I love the aesthetic of sheet music, especially vintage sheet music. I’m a little bit obsessed with using sheet music for all sorts of DIY projects. Sometimes I even create my own vintage sheet music for handmade endeavors. But there’s nothing quite like using genuine sheet music.
The original set of vintage hymns sheet music printables I created has been much more successful than I ever imagined. So I’ve slowly been creating more sets of vintage hymns for specific occasions. I’ve already released Christmas hymns and hymns for baptism. Now I’m releasing printable hymns for Easter.
This collection includes 27 hymns from three different hymn books. There are hymns for Lent and Passiontide, Palm Sunday, and Easter, including two Easter hymns in Latin. The vintage hymns are perfect for masses and church services as well as DIY projects and one-of-a-kind holiday wall decor.
Over the next year, I’ll also be sharing hymn collections for Mother’s Day and the 4th of July. If there’s anything else you’d like to see here, please let me know.
How to use free printable vintage hymns for Easter
- Lent, Palm Sunday, and Easter masses and services. Vintage hymns are ideal for choir books, bulletin inserts, and worship aids during the Easter season.
- Wall art. One of the most popular ways to use vintage sheet music and other vintage book pages is to create handmade wall art. My DIY Easter sheet music wall decor project is perfect for vintage music. Antique Easter hymns create gorgeous wall art on their own or overlaid with text and/or images, such as prayers, scripture verses, and seasonal/holiday messages.
- Home decor holiday projects. Vintage hymns are ideal for DIY sheet music plastic Easter eggs. You can also create holiday versions of a number of my other DIY home decor projects, such as tile coasters and glass magnets.
- Greeting cards. Antique hymns create a beautiful background for all types of greeting cards, including Easter cards. I have a sheet music card example in 10 simple DIY Easter cards.
- Scrapbooking. Vintage music creates whimsical backgrounds for both physical and digital scrapbook pages. Antique sheet music is also great for DIY scrapbook embellishments.
- Prayer/spiritual journals. Use vintage Easter hymns as backgrounds or page components for prayer/spiritual journal pages during the Easter season.
