Got great walls? Got great faith? Adorn them and express them with Christian wall plaques, art work or paintings.

It’s trendier than ever to get creative with wall art, and today there are so many options for inspiring others who come to your home (or office) with your faith. You’re not limited anymore to traditional colors or the same list of traditional designs.

In fact, Christian paintings are all over Pinterest and other social media sites because there are so many colors and styles in which to share the message of God’s love. You might choose to buy a pre-painted canvas with a bold verbal message, such as a verse, or one with a collection of words that reflect popular verses when placed together.

You might also look for popular Christian wall art that ties in nature together with faith, such as birds as the focus and a scripture, such as: “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care.” If you like nature but birds aren’t really your interest, there are many choices that feature grand trees and timeless verses of comfort, such as “For I know the plans I have for you, to give you a hope and a purpose.”

If you like to think outside the box when it comes to Christian paintings, look for bold impressions of the face of Jesus or bold representations of the cross. As you explore your choices, you may notice that you can create this type of art by getting a blank canvas, some paint samples and delving into your own meaning behind your faith. Whether you create it or purchase it from great sources like The Printery House (a 60-year business with its own special story to tell) there’s no limit to what you can share with Christian paintings.

In fact, you may find that this type of faith-filled artwork is the perfect solution to all your gift needs throughout the year, from confirmation and baptisms to weddings and holidays. Choose a few that reflect simple messages of hope and love and keep them on hand – you may be surprised to see how many chances you have to inspire someone when you’re ready with the right message. Look today online at our beautiful Christian artwork, here at the Printery House, and choose a special piece to share the message of Christ.

Want to know where art, faith and great decorating style meet?  Check out new styles of Christian paintings and Christian wall art. From thoughtful and inspiring to whimsical and bright, there’s a wall art piece waiting for your home or that of a friend.

Sometimes just a few words can be a powerful reminder of God’s love, so consider updating that room or home project with a wall plaque or several arranged together. Try having one as a central focal point, such as one with the famous message “Preach the gospel at all times, use words if necessary,” by St. Francis of Assisi.

Looking for a gift for a teen or a newlywed? Consider a Christian painting with bright colors and a message that resonates with every demographic. The artists and monks at The Printery House offer one with purples and blues in a modern style, sharing the message “We know that ALL THINGS work together for good for those who love God.” This type of framed Christian art works for all styles of décor.

If you attend a baptism ceremony or a wedding, you may even want to jot down a scripture that was used during the event and then make your own wall décor to honor the moment using a blank canvas. You can pair your own creation with a framed poster or plaque of a similar design that you find online.

If adding an exciting element to your entryway at home or at the office is on your mind this year, try a framed Christian art print with bright colors and visible art strokes that feature the cross. Right away, anyone who enters will know about your faith, and the art from The Printery House will resonate with every season, including “Where there is peace, there is God.”

In all these styles, you can be reminded of the scripture: Deuteronomy 6:6-9 — “Write these commandments that I’ve given you today on your hearts. Talk about them wherever you are, sitting at home or walking in the street; talk about them from the time you get up in the morning to when you fall into bed at night. Tie them on your hands and foreheads as a reminder; inscribe them on the doorposts of your homes and on your city gates.”

Keeping a few of these great gifts like wall plagues, Christian paintings or sculpted gifts for home or garden in your gift drawer means you’ll be ready to share your faith and show someone how special they are. Don’t forget to pair it with a beautiful hand-designed card from The Printery House, nestled in the rolling hills of the Benedictine monastery Conception Abbey.

Top Ten Christian Products to Give and Get

Door Knocker

Christ Is The Head of This Household

As more families look to simplify their clutter and their lives, it’s more important than ever to send a gift with thoughtful meaning to help someone share their faith – or simply to encourage them. Gifts and cards with true meaning can find a place in your home, and that of friends and family.

The rise in interest toward creating a space that’s full of meaning, and less full of excess, is fueled in part by Jen Hatmaker’s smash hit book “7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess,” published by Alive Communications. The book reminds readers that all of our resources have the potential to possess us, instead of remaining our possessions, if we aren’t careful.

Here are some Christian products that will remind the recipients to hold on to gratitude and faith:

1. Wall plaque: Choose an uplifting message or a blessing on a decorative Christian wall plaque. It’s a message of faith that can be used in any room or even a garden. It’ll stay when other items get transferred out.

2. Hand-created Christian cards: Everyone appreciates having just the right card to send, and you can tuck in some stamps for a useful, faith-filled gift.

3. Bible: A study bible or devotional bible is always a keeper and can be shared at the right moment with someone else.

4. Devotional: A simple devotional makes a great choice among top ten Christian gifts because it invites the reader to a few quiet moments of prayer and reflection.

5. Jewelry: Necklaces and bracelets with Christian charms are more popular than ever to help share a message of hope and remind wearers what really matters.

6. Calendar: A calendar for the kitchen, filled with scripture, will be appreciated daily.

7. Stationary: Have you ever had your own set of custom stationary? There’s always something special about getting it out to write a note or letter.

8. Door knocker: Remind yourself, and your guests, that Christ rules this home with a unique Christian door knocker.

9. Prayer cards: Send a beautiful set as a gift. They can be shared for years to come as a source of encouragement, and used as simple decorations or even bookmarks.

10. Decorative cross: From wooden to bronze or brightly-colored designs, nothing grounds a person more in the things that truly matter like a beautiful decorative cross for the wall.

If you’re looking for the top ten Christian products to give and get, keep in mind the best gifts have a story behind them – and invite the recipient to create their own story. You can “send something you believe in” with a gift or card from The Printery House.

Christian Paintings For Less Than a Latte

Holy Cards 3

The Mystical Supper

How can you fill your home or office with Christian paintings for less than a latte? Try using the beautiful and faith-filled artwork you find on Christian greeting cards as a source of inspiration.

Pinterest and other social media platforms are great sources for ideas for how you can incorporate Christian cards into your home on the walls. This is especially true when the cards feature hand-designed artwork, and in many cases, you can find designs that model great Christian paintings and religious icons. In fact, for years, monks have designed Christian and Catholic artwork or icons that help use their talents to support the work of the monastery.

Need ideas for how to incorporate Christian paintings you find on greeting cards?

1. Place a group of them in a collage frame to take up the wall space as a full-sized painting would do.

2. Place Christian greetings cards that depict religious scenes like the birth of Jesus, the resurrection or other pivotal moments behind glass frames and set candles around them for your own custom display.

3. For a child’s room, choose Christian paintings on cards and laminate them for a fun mobile project that the child can help create. Put a verse of scripture on the back of each one.

4. Use a series of images found on Christian greeting cards for telling a story in wallpaper border-style. Adhere them along the top of a room in a repeated pattern for a true conversation piece that talks about your faith.

The Printery House still makes greeting cards in-house with artistic lettering and design work by monks who live at Conception Abbey, a Benedictine monastery in the rolling hills of northwest Missouri. The cards have been designed and printed on the grounds of The Printery House for 60 years, so there’s something truly special about these pieces of Christian artwork. They truly are works of art that you can treasure for years to come.

To start your own home collection, try the Keepsake Prayer Cards, featuring intricate and beautiful designs. You may also want to experiment with the artistic styles on the Mass Cards, which range from contemporary to traditional images. The Icon Greeting Cards collection features bright and highly-detailed designs, including the Trinity, angels and the Last Supper. Selecting these unique, locally-made designs is a meaningful way to incorporate the concept of Christian paintings into your home without a large investment.
