Decorate with Antique Holiday Postcards

You’ve probably sent postcards in the mail, but have you ever decorated with them? Antique holiday postcards are a unique way to spruce up your home in flea market style. If you’re wondering what to do with them, here’s a few ideas!

  • Wall gallery: Tape or tack them up next to your other Christmas cards.
  • Decor blocks: Buy or cut postcard-sized wood blocks. Glue a postcard onto each one to create stackable antique decor.
  • Decor board: Glue your postcards onto a wood board (large or small—your choice!) to create a wall gallery that you can put up and store away every year.
  • Christmas ornaments: Lay your postcard flat and glue a long piece of string along the top of the back. Then tie the ends together to make a triangle shape.
  • Scrapbooking: Use postcards alongside your pictures and stickers.
  • Shelf decor: Place them throughout a display shelf to add a subtle dash of antique goodness.

Now that you’ve got some ideas, take a look at our favorite antique holiday postcards from Etsy. Get ready to get crafty!
