This display is quite attention-seeking, so it will work best in small doses – try an alcove or behind a sofa or bedhead.
Once you decide on the wall you wish to cover, it’s simply a matter of keeping your eyes peeled for images that will suit your intended theme. Collecting such a large number of postcards could take a lifetime, so speed up the process by heading to markets and vintage stores where you are likely to find them en masse (and at bargain prices).
What you will need
- A collection of postcards
- Blu-Tack, or similar
To avoid total visual chaos, stick to one theme, such as statues, travel destinations, flowers or architecture. This not only gives you a guideline for collecting, it will bring consistency to the total look.
Arrange postcards & stick to wall
Simply use your Blu-Tack on the back of each postcard to apply it to your wall, and rearrange as you wish.
