Nothing fills a home with personality quite like artwork, and who knows your personality better than you? Making your own typographic wall art is easy. Step 1: Start with a great font. We put together a collection of fonts with tons of natural personality; you don't need to be a designer to bring these typefaces to life— just type, print and frame. We've separated them out by decorating style, so everyone can find something they like.
This was all inspired by Liz's reveal of a new nursery gallery wall on her blog, See-Saw. Among the shelves and shadow boxes, I spotted a simple print which used a familiar font: Homestead. So simple, in fact, that with just a few hours and some creative inspiration, anyone could replicate it. All you need is an idea and a printer.
Homestead's not technically a free font. It's part of the "pay what you want" Lost Type Co-Op. So we gathered it together with nine other fonts in a few different styles. These fonts are each marked free for personal use, which will definitely cover you designing and printing a piece for a wall in your home. Time to get crafty!
