Choose postcards with a common theme. It can be postcards of different cities or postcards that have similar color scheme. Put all the postcards on a board. Choose an appropriate wall frame to put the board in. When done, all that’s left to do is to pick the perfect spot to hang your work.

Step 2: Place the postcards in a glass table.

If you won a table with a removable, protective glass layer, you can place your postcards in between to serve as decoration. Just be sure to properly align the cards and stick them using glue that would work on your table’s surface. Once everything is in place, carefully place the glass back on top of your table.

Step 3: Make hanging decors using postcards.

Another trick that could turn your postcards into fabulous home decors is to attach these on strings or ribbons. Around the holidays, you can use Christmas postcards to make a room look even more festive. You can insert beads or small ornaments on the strings to make them even prettier.

You can also reproduce a postcard design that you wish to use. There are online printing companies that offer postcard printing . This can work if you have specific postcards you want to display but have yet to get a copy.

Be creative when decorating your home with postcards and you can be sure that by the end of the day, your house will look more elegant and stylish.
