You know that I’m a sucker for all things sheet music and all things Christmas.
So it should come as no surprise that I am so excited about this collection of 24 free printable vintage Christmas sheet music hymns. I love creating with all types of sheet music. On occasion, I’ve made my own vintage sheet music for a number of different projects. But there’s nothing quite like using genuine vintage sheet music.
How to use free printable vintage Christmas sheet music hymns
Most likely if you’re searching for free Christmas music to print, you already have an idea for a craft project or use for the music. If you need a little more inspiration, think about one or more of the following ideas:
- Wall art. Vintage sheet music looks great framed or can be overlayed with virtually any type of transparent image to create one of a kind decor for the holiday season. I created the piece pictured above with an overlayed transparent nativity silhouette scene.
- Christmas caroling. Create whimsical caroling books for your church or community choir with vintage versions of classic Christmas carols.
- Tile coasters, using the technique I outline in my vintage sheet music botanical coasters post. Vintage sheet music is beautiful on its own or with images overlaid.
- Home decor. In addition to wall art and tile coasters, there are numerous possibilities for creating vintage sheet music decor items such as Christmas ornaments, decorated mason jars, and decoupaged votive candles.
- Glass or bottle cap magnets, using the technique for sheet music glass magnets.
- Greeting cards. Vintage Christmas sheet music creates an ideal background for all sorts of holiday greeting cards.
- Gift tags. Christmas sheet music is also a perfect backdrop for handmade gift tags.
- Mixed media projects and art journals. Layer sheet music with paint, ink, stamps, and more to create art journal pages or mixed media art.
- Scrapbooking. Vintage music creates whimsical backgrounds for both physical and digital scrapbooks. Old sheet music is also perfect for DIY scrapbook embellishments.
