Up today is project #2 featuring red and black buffalo plaid. Oh my gosh am I having fun with this! I promise not to get carried away though. These JOY free Christmas printables are the perfect way to add this print to your decor for basically no money…and even if you have to buy the frames it would still be affordable. I had the black frames and red mats but both are available at any craft store. I printed the letters on white, textured card stock and in ten minutes had new wall art. I also included a bonus printable of a flying, buffalo plaid reindeer. Like my ball ornaments, he turned out pretty cute.

Now…if you don’t want to hang these on your wall, I’ve found some other really fun options. This picture has been pinned a jillion times. It’s no surprise because it’s a doable and easy thing. This idea would be super simple especially if you already had a shelf in place. You could also do something like this which is very cozy and sort of has a farmhouse feel.

      Thank you Connie…what a very nice thing to say!

  6. I have to do the buffalo plaid printables. I love the framed version with the red mats. Thank you, Ann.

  7. Love this buffalo plaid series..not my colors but oh so cute! And I do love the boots added in the JOY picture…I am going to copy that on my front porch by the door…..

  8. The laters are beautiful! Love the Christmas bulbs and pinecones as fillers. Could you share the source for the ribbon you used.
    Thank you,

  9. Ann, I LOVE these posts!! Just what I needed. Thank you so much for sharing your creative ideas. The printable so are so cute…I’m hoping to make some of these. ~Ann

  10. Wish my living room was still barn red so that I could do the buffalo plaid theme too!
    Just saw some cute small square plates at Target in that pattern $3 for 4!
    With our new Panatone “chili” orange I’m going Victorian gold,mercury glass and platinum, muted rust and browns. Totally in a different direction than ever before! I know just how feel with new theme, it gets those creative juices going! After my red, apple green and white for so many years it’s a fun change.

  11. Thank you for sharing your sneak peeks and your always-cute printables. I’m eagerly awaiting the unveiling of your Christmas decor this year!

  12. I’m loving the red buffalo plaid- thank you for sharing the printables! They will add so much to my Christmas decor. I’ve always heard that every room should have a “touch of black” and this buffalo plaid will be perfect!

  13. Thanks for sharing your cute/creative ideas!!! Question. When you download a printable, can you change the print size???

    Happy Holidays, Ann!

    Enjoy your site! Waiting for the next post.
    Keep the buffalo plaid coming our way!
    I am not in to priintables but always find something to enjoy.

  15. Thanks for this! I love it!

  16. Hi Ann,
    I love your website, emails & decorating!
    Thank you for sharing!

  17. Ann, I just have to say THANK YOU for your emails and all the wonderful ideas for decorating and cooking and all you share with us. I LOVE the Joy printables for Christmas and will change out last year’s printables (which I got so many compliments on) for the Buffalo plaid “Joy” printables. I actually changed my “ribbon” theme this year to this plaid so these printables will fit right in. You’re awesome!

    You always create and share the most beautiful printables and I can’t thank you enough. I love your style and your printables always fit in well with my decor. The buffalo plaid in these prints is fabulous and I am enjoying how you are incorporating this theme in such pretty yet subtle and not overdone ways. Looking forward to seeing what idea you come up with next.

  19. Lovely post, Ann Thanks for sharing. What size black frames do you use for the individual “Joy” letters you framed. I have a place to put the 3 frames but I can’t decide what size. I really like yours. Thanks for the delightful post.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Lu Ann!
      The frames are 11 x 14. The mats have an 8 x 10 opening. I got everything a few years ago at Hobby Lobby but any craft store has this sort of thing. Enjoy!

      1. Hi Ann, I’m fairly new to this sight and love love love all the wonderful creative ideas. I’m really interested in the buffalo plaid J O Y letters, but the space I have to put them will not accommodate such large frames. Is there a way to make the letters smaller to fit a 5×7 frame.
