l love a good DIY project just as much as the next girl. But a few years ago, I was craving a hobby I could also teach myself. And, preferably, teach myself while at home mindlessly watching Netflix. Brush calligraphy ended up being just the one! And while I won’t get into how many hours I spent practicing while binge-watching Parks & Rec, you really only need 10 minutes a day to hone this new skill.

Sure, there are about a bajillion fonts you could use for your project. But there’s still nothing quite like hand lettering to give your invitation or word art that extra-special touch. Before you get ready to put pen to paper, brush up on the different type of calligraphy. Yes, there are several!

Along with practicing every day (yes, every single day!), following fellow lettering artists on Instagram is a great way to get inspired as you learn the art form. Whether you’re intrigued by traditional marker lettering or you're thinking about dabbling in mixed mediums, these are the artists to stalk.

No one's surprised that hand lettering and hand stitching are instant BFFs, right? Beautiful, swirling script accented with neat, textural stitching just makes sense.
