Vintage Post Card Garland



I made this garland in about five minutes.  I love that.




To make this you will need an odd number of cards and some ribbon.I bought these three cards for 25 cents each.



Tools - scissors and a hole punch



Punch holes in the corners...



String the ribbon through...

And you have a quick and inexpensive vintage post card garland.

  1. Janet this is lovely! I have a big ole vintage white framed mirror on my mantle too, and this project looks just perfect for that spot. Thanks for linking up this week :)

  3. Oh I love vintage postcards!! Where did you ever manage to get them for 25 cents each? That is such a great deal. Most of the antique stores I've seen them in usually want at least a few dollars (sometimes up to $4.00 if they're especially cute). I love your idea though! They look so sweet and charming hanging over your mantle like that. Thanks for sharing!!

  4. Janet,
    This is a great idea. I have several vintage Christmas postcards so I'm going to make one of these! Thanks for the inspiration.
