Expand your hand lettering skills with these Hippety Hip Hop Easter Hand Lettering Worksheets. You’ll be able to practice 3 different lettering styles and I’ll teach you the best brush pens and calligraphy tools to use.
When created my 3 Modern Calligraphy Practice Sheets, I talked about getting out of my comfort zone to improve my lettering skills. If you haven’t read that post, or downloaded those printables, yet…I recommend going back to do that. I’ll be continuing the conversation a bit with tips for recreating these Easter Hand Lettering Practice Sheets.
Supplies for Easter Hand Lettering Practice Sheets – calligraphy style
- Calligraphy Paper or high-quality printer paper
- Calligraphy Oblique Pen holder
- Gold Foil Carrot Calligraphy Pen – I just got mine and the width of the holder really helps with control. Plus…PRETTY!
- Calligraphy Nib
- Tombow Fudenosuke | Get it on Amazon or Tombow.com
- iPad Pro with the Light Calligraphy Brush
This style can be recreated with a brush pen, with a calligraphy nib, or on the iPad. I think it depends on your skill level, but I would start out with the Fudenosuke, then try the Calligraphy nib and iPad.
I think brush lettering helped me get started in lettering, then working with calligraphy actually made me get better at brush lettering. It takes a different type of muscle memory and concentration to work with a nib, but in the end, it all helps with the end goal of being more consistent in your upstrokes and downstrokes.

I love this worksheet because it’s simple for beginners, but you can really get creative with colors and filling in the word “HIP.” I had my babysitter create this one. She outlined the script with a black sharpie, then decorated the block lettering with the Twintone markers.
