After the Christmas decor comes down (the day after Christmas at my house!) it can be tricky to find the right seasonal decor — what kind of winter decor is right for your style? and when can you add Valentine’s decor into the mix? Well, we have the perfect solution: this printable set is both beautiful and simple winter decor AND a perfect nod to Valentine’s Day since you can customize it to feature the ones you love — with carved names on the trunk of the watercolor birch tree! But it is great as year round decor too!
Watercolor Carved Birch Tree Printable Set with Fillable Names and Initials
This birch tree printable set has been so popular, we’ve added another new print to the hand-drawn watercolor bundle — a carved LOVE tree with a duo of love birds sitting in the tree. No official word on whether they are K-I-S-S-I-N-G… 😉
Pair the watercolor birds with with a simple 5×7 handlettered watercolor verse in printable set #1:
And then, also in the shop, we have this matching set of two popular custom fillable birch tree carving printables.
The personalized set features an 8×10 size print with the quintessential symbol of love: carved initials inside a heart. Custom fillable fields mean that you can personalize this for yourself and your love — or for a bride and groom, an anniversary gift, or parents at a baby shower!
And to go with it, in an 11×14 size, a trio of hand-drawn birch trees where you can add up to 8 family member’s or children’s names “carved” on the tree trunks. Again, these are custom fillable fields so this print is 100% personalized to your needs. (If you don’t need all 9 fields, leave the extra fields blank and they won’t show in the printed version.)
To personalize the prints, download the prints here in our Remodelaholic shop or by using the button below to add one or both sets to you cart. The lovebird and quote set are available at a special price (for a limited time) so be sure to grab both the watercolor print set and the fillable carving set and get decorating!
Once you’ve purchased and downloaded the files, you’re just a couple of steps away from practically perfect printable decor. The lovebirds and lyrics are ready to print, no customization needed. To customize the carved birch trees, open the PDF file using Acrobat Reader on your computer (not in your web browser) and click in each of the blue text fields to add your text. For more information about customizing and printing custom fillable files like this, please see our shop FAQs here.
and then print.
We printed the smaller prints on a new printer from our partners at Canon: the compact and pretty (yes, a pretty printer!) Canon PIXMA TS9020 and the larger 11×14 print on the iP8720 — or you can scale it to fit on 8.5×11 letter paper, too, when you print.

Each print has cut lines included, so for best results, print the 5×7 and 8×10 prints on standard 8.5×11 matte photo paper and the 11×14 on 11×17 paper and then use a craft knife and a metal ruler (like we used for the pennant calendar printable) to cut along the cut lines. Be sure to use a cutting mat underneath so you don’t cut up your table!
You could mount these prints on boards like we did with these feather prints, hang them on an easy DIY memo board, or frame them — you’ll need one 5×7, two 8×10, and one 11×14 (or larger with a mat!) and I think these rustic wood frames we found are the perfect complement to the birch tree art prints. The frames are from Hobby Lobby, and there are similar barnwood frames available over on Amazon as well.
These make a great winter decoration grouped on a mantel or shelf — why not add some real birch candles (or safety-conscious battery operated ones) or tealights? or hang the prints on the wall as part of a mini gallery collection, maybe even with one of the winter prints from our seasonal watercolor print set! You could add a large slice of real birch to the ensemble, or pinecones, evergreen sprigs, and a pom pom garland would also be great additions!

Please note: a small portion of Mac users have reported that the custom font doesn’t work correctly in the file they receive via email, even after opening it properly in stand-alone Adobe Reader. If this happens to you, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Update from reader Brooke: “I believe I have figured out what the issue is. Most Macs automatically open a PDF with a program called preview. I had to re download adobe reader and update it for it to show up. Now it is working perfectly. Hopefully this can help for any future Mac users. This is the link to download adobe reader, and to install updated versions —> https://get.adobe.com/
