When I came home for the holidays, my mom showed me her latest craft—these lovely Christmas ornaments, made from vintage holiday postcards. I asked her to show me just how she made them so that I could share it here with you!
Instructions to Make Vintage Postcard Ornaments
Find a vintage postcard, and cut the image to the size you desire.
Cut a piece of foam board to match, and glue the image on.
Pick a ribbon that is the width of the foam board, and glue it over the raw edge.
Frame the picture in rick-rack, gluing it in place.Using a thin piece of wire, poke holes through the top of the foam board, and thread the wire through, forming a hanger.
You can decorate with beads, if you desire.
Secure the hanger by twisting the ends with pliers.
That’s it! Have fun making your own vintage postcard ornaments.
