DIY Art: Decorating with Vintage Hankies

September 15, 2011 by admin

Here’s a little story I created a while back at House & Home.

It’s super easy:  I picked up some frames at Urban Outfitters that are meant for framing vintage record albums.  They’re the perfect shape and depth for hankies!  Then I just amassed a collection of vintage hankies (some from Cabaret on Queen West in Toronto) and hung them in a grid over a simple demilune console.  And Voila!  Give it a try!

    Pretty and quaint. I will put together a small vignette in our store over a basket of hankies, that is if I can get my husband to move a clock or two. I love the collection you put together. Just beautiful. They would make great gifts as well. Nancy

    This is great! I mentioned in another spot that I have a lot of vintage hankies – mostly plain with lace edges. Have been trying to dream up something to do with them – probably in my quilting!

    I remember that feature from H&H! Just so you know Michael… when your name was credited to a article, I always enjoyed it.

    I loved this back when you did it and I absolutely love it now. It’s so so pretty!
