Since joining Pinterest (I promise I will explain Pinterest soon for those of you who haven’t been sucked into the abyss of endless ideas and inspiration!), I discovered the world of FREE printables!

I am telling you there are some creative people out there in blogland (much more creative than me!)  And they are sweet enough to not only make the printable, but then to share it on their blog for you to print for FREE! 🙂

Here are 2 fall-themed printables that I printed and put out for fall 🙂


I got this white frame at a flea market for $2 (price on the back from Marshalls says $19.99 😉 ) and I love it! I have this awkward space behind my sink that for years I didn’t know how to decorate.  But after seeing beautiful vignettes of décor items around blogland, I have been happy with my arrangements recently.

I usually have a picture of my husband and I displayed in this frame (it is still in there, just behind the fall subway art), but I decided to change it up for fall.  You can print your own fall subway print here.


I also loved this simple printable reminding me to count my many blessings! 🙂  I changed out another picture in this frame for this printable.  You can print your own from here.


In fact Aimee over Sprik Space has TONS of cute printables

Here are some more from all across blogland:

Home printable  (she has lots more printables too!)

and I love Karen’s blog, Papercraft memories! she has created some gorgeous scripture and verse printables.  Here are just a few:

Wouldn’t this make an adorable gift for a very close friend?  Frame it in a super cute frame with a burlap border and an inscription…

Some of the scripture ones could probably be adapted to use for cards too.

And to get you ready for Thanksgiving here are a bunch of FREE Thanksgiving printables!

A Collection of Free Thanksgiving Printables!

So the next time you are at Goodwill or a yardsale, pick up some 10×13 or 8×10 frames for cheap, print off some of these free printables, and you have wonderful art for CHEAP!  I plan on adding more of these wonderful printables all throughout our house! 🙂  Who knows, maybe I will even get creative and make my own to share with you. 🙂

I haven’t even touched the surface of the free printables that are available online.  If you are looking for more, check out my free printables board on Pinterest, search Pinterest (try searching fall free printable or home free printable), or just search the internet. 

If you find some good ones, come back and share the link in the comments! 🙂


  1. These are great! Thanks for rounding them up. I think I’ll print the one from 18 25!

  2. Are you printingthem at home or a print place? I find the colors are wonky on my printer!

    • Christina says:


      I am printing them on a regular printer (actually a laser printer). Maybe your color ink is low? Not sure how much a printing place would charge for 1 color copy but if less than a $1 would be worth it to me.

  3. I love what you did with you little sink area! Thanks for all the links. 🙂

  4. Thank you so much for featuring my WORDart! I love your blog…your ideas are wonderful and I will be using quite a few of them. Your home is beautiful!!!!
