There is no point in having a collection if you can’t enjoy it. We have a collection of playing cards, cameras, teacups and postcards. Our renovations are finally finished, so I’m now in the process of working out how best to display our collections, without cluttering up the home.
We have a post in our kitchen (which holds up that side of the house!) which looked very plain and boring before. It was just calling out to be decorated! All we have done here is string some twine through the postcards and hang them on the post. You can turn the postcards around and read the messages on the back, and there is only one hook per row of cards … therefore minimising the number of holes we put into the post, and/or use of blutac.
Gather your Tools
Nails or picture hook
Start by gently hammering a nail or picture hook into the wall at the top of where you want your postcard line to start. Measure the length of twine required, allowing approximately 15cm at the top and 5cm at the bottom of each line.
Punch one hole into the top and one into the bottom of your postcard and thread the twine through (leaving about 10cm at the top of the first postcard). At your last postcard, loop the twine around and gently tie a knot at the back.
Carry your line of postcards over to the wall and tie a knot onto your nail or picture hook in the wall. Tie a bow at the top, and you’re finished!
We still had a heap of postcards leftover after this project, so I’ve left them in my postcard book until I gather enough to cover an entire wall!
