This Free Printable Christmas Scripture Tree speaks to the true meaning of Christmas. Available in a variety of colors and backgrounds, it’s the perfect addition to any Christmas decor!

*This post has been updated from 2010.


I created the printable Scripture Tree nearly 6 years ago and it’s still popular during the holiday season. Here is a photo of the original:


I have been thinking the past few Christmases that the original design feels a little dated, so I gave it a little makeover with fresh colors and fonts. Of course one print just wasn’t enough so I updated the design into a chalkboard print, too. Then I started playing around with it even more and came up with an updated design that I think I love even more!




If you’d still like to download the original, you can do that HERE. All designs are free for personal use only. I do not give permission for my design to be recreated or sold in any way.


  • Print them out on 8 ½ x 11-inch cardstock. Trim to fit an 8×10-inch frame and hang on your wall or stand up on table for display.
  • Reduce size to fit on half a page, print on cardstock and fold in half to create DIY Christmas cards.
  • Print several to a page, cut out to use as Christmas tags. Just punch a hole at the top and loop a ribbon through to attach to gifts.

Tools needed for this project:

You may need one or more of these tools to help in printing and creating the projects described above:

Color printer – This device offers beautiful color printer on a variety of paper sizes, mobile printing (from your mobile device), scanning and copying and much more!

Cardstock – A heavier paper is my first choice when printing anything for display, gift tags and cards or tags.

Sharp scissors – needed for cutting cardstock, especially when cutting into shapes for cards and tags.

Paper Trimmer – Helpful when trimming to size, especially from 8 ½ x 11-inch paper.

  1. I love this so much! I printed the classic red and green and framed it for Christmas this year. I was wondering if I can have it printed onto canvas for a needlepoint pillow. I have found someone who will do it, I think, but wanted to get your permission first.

    1. As long as you aren’t selling for profit, I suppose you could do that, but the person making it might have to consider that it’s a copyrighted image.

  2. These are great! I’m planning to use them as the insides of Christmas cards. They are beautiful and I’m sure the senior living community we are making the cards for will appreciate your designs! Thank you and Merry Christmas!

  3. These are Wonderful.
    Thank You for sharing. I had done family ornaments for our family tree last year so I will be down sizing these to make as ornaments for our tree.

  4. Hi there! Forgive my lack of knowledge here, but is it okay to print this out to put on the front of my Christmas cards? Like the other commenters here, I’m loving this subway art! Really boils this season down to it’s essence. Thank you!

  5. I really like this but it’s linking to Kelly BlueBook instead of the printable. Would you be able to fix this? I was hoping to make a gift for my pastor and family for Christmas. Thank you so very much!!

  6. Thank you SO much for this printable! My husband and I just moved from one Middle Eastern country to another and don’t have a Christmas tree. This will look lovely on our wall with some lights around it and be a wonderful discussion starter with our neighbors. You are a blessing!

  7. Hi! Do you have a PDF file of the Luke 2:13-14 Christmass Tree printable? I am planning of printing it in a large size (A2 or A1) to place on my wall.
    Thanks much for this free printable.

  8. Thank you! I just started a new papercrafting hobby and I’m making mini albums for my daughters. This is a beautiful addition to share the sentiment of the season. 🙂

  9. I saw this on Pinterest today and was wondering: Can this be resized to print on standard A2 sized cards (4.25 x 5.5)? Thanks for sharing! Kelli

  10. I am finding this after Christmas but I saved the file and plan to use it next year. Wanted to say thank you! 🙂

  11. Thank you so much, I found this on Pinterest. I had been searching for something to print out to write a thank you note on the back for gifts from my customers ( I am a letter carrier )…so pretty and expresses the true meaning of Christmas.

  12. Just found the blog. Love this printable and your “About Me”. Sounds just like me!

  13. Thanks so much for sharing! Thought you should know that the actual scripture is good will toward men. no s on toward. I’m gonna alter and print, though. Love it! thanks!

  14. A vinyl version of this is for sale today here:
    Is it authorized by you? If I buy it, do you get paid?
    I really enjoyed the free paper printable from last year, so I’m considering buying the vinyl version, but it doesn’t link to your site.

  15. I don’t know if you’re still checking the comments… When I printed it out in an 8×10 the picture came out fuzzy. Would you be able to email me the larger file??


  16. Thank you so much for posting this. I printed some out on card stock for favors. I will definitely print and frame one for my home, too!

  17. Thank you for the free printable. I just found you today from Gwenny Penny’s site and became a follower. Your printables button is now on my home page. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

  18. Thank you for the beautiful printable. I love it and had been searching for something I could use on my fireplace mantle which I do a half wall tree over in angels in memory of my mom whom I lost just over a year ago. Mom was a collector of angels and I thought this tree just would be the best memorial of her during the Christmas Season her favorite time of the year.


  19. I love this-so pretty and would make a great gift. I am having a Created for Christmas link party on my blog and would love for you to link this to it. I think it would be a big hit with everyone! You can find it at

    Stacey : )

    May your family have a wonderful Christmas!

  26. Just love it! And we watched Charlie Brown’s Christmas last night, so reading this blog was perfect!

  27. I LOVE this!! I actually changed up the color a bit in photoshop and used it on my Christmas cards this year! Love how they turned out. Thanks so much for sharing! =) Jenny

  28. Beautiful, Kristin! Nice work. I immediately started thinking of Linus when I started reading the printable, so I laughed when I saw you thought of him, too:)

  35. I was holding out for a holiday printable that used words from the real story of Christmas. Thank you! The fact that it’s in the tree shape is just the icing on the cake. This pretty thing is on my mantle now with a matching red frame. Wa La! Lovely.

  39. Thank you so much for sharing and for your comment on my blog. I love your blog. So glad to have found you through Be Different Act Normal.


    Merry Christmas!

  40. Such a lovely picture. I’m not normally a fan of word art, but this is going up on my wall for sure!

    Thank you for sharing it with us.

  41. Thanks for sharing with the blog world! I LOVE it and am even going to print them and frame them for my mother and Mother In Law for stocking stuffers 🙂

  42. LOVE THIS!!! Thank you for sharing. I linked up, hope that’s okay!


  43. Wow, that is just gorgeous and really is perfect for the true meaning of Christmas. Thank you so much for sharing. Have a blessed holiday!

  44. This is a silly question I’m sure. But when I prin this it is off center to the right a bit. The trees last 2 lines are cut off a bit so there isn’t a perfect triangle. What am I doing wrong? How can I fix this? I’d like to have this framed next to our advent wreath.

  45. Hello! I love this idea. I featured it on my blog today! Love if you stopped by! And if you don’t mind – while your there clicking on my widget. Each click we get P&G is donating 1 days worth of water! Thanks!


  46. Thank you very much …just beautiful and besides going on my December Daily album, it will be frames for our house. Hugs!

  47. This is perfect..I too was looking for something that was Christ centered and this is so perfect. Thank you so much for sharing this with all of us!

  48. I just did a google search for subway art and stumbled on your blog. I think you’ve read my mind with this tree print. Thanks for being so generous and sharing with all of us.

  49. Thank you for sharing this! I saw some carol titles and “ho ho ho” shaped like a tree on a vinyl cling last night at Walmart. I took a picture with my phone for a general idea, but wanted to come up with something for one from Scripture. You have done an amazing job…so now I don’t have to struggle through trying to come up with something! Thank you again! I have signed on as your newest follower and I’ll be back! 🙂

  50. This is great, you did such a good job. Thank you so much for the little gift, and I don’t even know you.

  51. THank you so much! This is one of the best ones I have seen. And I love your Christmas music. You can never go wrong with John Denver and the Muppets.
    Thank you again
