Hi friends! Did you see my post from last week? I shared a beautiful Valentines Tablescape full of inspiration along with some pretty and simple DIY heart home decor.
This week, I want to share a highly requested tutorial on making hymn art. Hymns are such a beautiful way to add meaningful decor to your home, so I want to show you how to make your own today! If you’re not wanting to make your own, I do have a few available in in the boutique! For this DIY, you can use your favorite hymn and make it the perfect size to fit your space.

You’ll need to gather a few things to get started.
- Wooden Art Block – I used the Blick Studio Wood Panels
- Chalk Paint – I used this Waverly Chalk Paint

- Sponge Brush
- Acrylic Matte Gel Medium – I use Utrecht Acrylic Gel Medium
- Selected Hymn, Printed Reverse . You can find hymns at hymnary.org
- Wax or Polycrylic – I used Johnson Paste Wax and Fusion Mineral Wax
It Is Well Hymn Art
The method I use to make hymn wall decor is very similar to how you would do a photo transfer to wood using mod podge. I use a matte gel medium instead of mod podge and a hymn. Once you find the hymn you like best from hymnary.org, you will need to resize it to fit your wood panel. When you send it off to have it printed, make sure to ask them to reverse the image. (It should look backwards when printed.)
How To Make Wall Art Hymn Decor
- Start by painting your wood block. I white washed mine in the video tutorial.
- Once painted, spread a thin, even layer of Gel Medium on your panel.
- Place your paper, hymn side down, on top of the gel medium. Apply light even pressure and smooth it down, being careful not to shift the paper. Let it dry overnight.
- Once it is good and dry, use water to dampen the paper. Slowly start rubbing the paper off.
- You can gently use a sponge and a microfiber cloth to help remove the paper.
- Once all the paper is removed, let it dry really well. I usually let it dry overnight.
- After you’ve let it dry really well, you can apply your wax or Polycrylic. (Linking my top picks down below.)
