5 Ways to display Postcards at home

I seem to have an endless supply of Postcards. When ever I go travelling or to a Museum, I always end up buying what feels like thousands of postcards. However, the majority of them end up in a draw somewhere awaiting for me to find the time to take them and go through them.

If this scenario sounds familiar, then fear not! As I have been going through the magical world of Pinterest to find the most creative and chic ways to display these souvenirs, and here are my top 5 favourite ways to showcase your postcard collection around your home!

This is a simple display is incredibly effortless, and even though it is minimalistic its’s a fantastic way to display those postcards without having to spend lots of money. One way to complete this look could be done easily using string along with small clips to attach the postcards to. Simple, yet effective.

This postcard chandelier from French Fancy is so stylish! I love the fact that such a way of displaying postcards is completely different to others seen – therefore, making it a unique statement piece for any home, and a fantastic way to bring those postcards out of the draws and on display in your home. A definite talking point for any visitor who comes to your home!

You can check out this awesome DIY by A Pair and A Spare, wherein they have created a really cool way to display photos or postcards which is similar to the hanging chandelier above. It’s super easy to make and looks effortlessly chic.

I absolutely love this postcard/photo display! The mantel piece above a fire place is the perfect place to show off your collection. It’s a great way of using a small amount of space to create interesting decoration. In contrast to the other ways of displaying your postcards, this shows that order is not necessarily always the way when displaying your postcards. It will also make for a great talking point for those coming to visit your humble abode.

This is probably the easiest and elegant ways of showcasing those postcards – a simple bordered frame is the perfect way to display postcards. Whether in a big frame like above, or perhaps one that will allow for 4 x 4 postcards, both will be wonderful ways to add some art to your home.

In addition to collecting thousands of postcards, I also seem to have a knack of obtaining masses of hangers. Finally, there seems to be a clever way of using these pesky items – utilising them as a postcard display!

New Greeting Card section here! 

As you may already know from one of my previous posts, I have just opened up my very own Etsy shop full of photo prints from around Paris and beyond! And now, I have just launched my first collection of greeting cards! All the photos are professionally printed at premium quality, and then hand-mounted by myself onto cards.

For those who know me, I am obsessed about all things stationary. But I also understand and appreciate the importance of a hand-written note. Whether it be a postcard to detail your travels, or a simple greeting card to say hello to a loved one – there’s nothing more special than sending or receiving a hand-written letter.

Therefore, I hope that my cards will be of use to many of you out there, as I use them often myself. Writing a quick note to someone is so simple and effortless, yet this goes a long way to show people how much you value their friendship and love.

So what are you waiting for!? Go check out my new collection of greeting cards – perfect for sending notes to loved ones or as gifts!
