I’ve downloaded free fonts for LOTS of DIYs. I taught myself how to do this while planning our wedding because I made lots of DIY printables! If you didn’t know, I got pregnant on my honeymoon! So then I was working on DIY printables for my gender reveal & nursery. Over the years, I have downloaded and used creative fonts for lots bridal & baby showers projects too!
I used a free font for one of my baby nursery printables for Taylor which was saved on my computer but I opened my Microsoft word document and my font wasn’t there because I got a new computer… no problem, just need to redownload! Except it has been a while. Luckily, it’s like riding a bike and I remembered fairly quickly but figured I’d share for all of you! I was able to find the exact font and reinstall in 1, 2, 3!
My favorite free font site is dafont.com.
First you select the font that you want. There are many different types:
- Fancy Curly
Pick your font and simply hit DOWNLOAD! Here I Picked the Pretty Girls Script demo.
Now it downloaded a zip file and you may be thinking what in the heck do I do with that?
Not to worry! Open the zip by double clicking and then you will see the font name + demo.
Double click again on the + demo file and then hit “install”.
Now, if you would like to check and see that it was installed… search your computer for the Control Panel. Once you are there. Go to the appearance and personalization folder.
And then you see the font folder – who knew right?
I didn’t even have to close Microsoft office! My font was immediately there for my use! Yay!!
Have fun with this and don’t forget to email me with your favorite font finds and DIY printables that you make!! I’m so glad you stopped by my website! Hopefully you can download some of your own free fonts!
I also wanted to share with you all another super easy & fun way to use different fonts. I have been using Canva on both my PC and the app and it’s absolutely amazing! I can create absolutely anything! I love it and use it every day! If you aren’t using Canva, I highly recommend it!
