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.
