How to Display Vintage Valentines

February 03, 2021

Do you have any old Valentines? I have some, I like to display them with my Valentine decor but it's always a little hard to figure out how to display them. 

But this year I came up with a few ideas!

I wanted something whimsical and fun to match the cuteness of these old Valentines.

My first way to display vintage Valentines involves this salvaged wood piece. I'm really not sure what it is... or was... I found it at the dump. It kind of resembles a chair back but I don't think that's what it is.

I found this several years ago and have been hanging onto it all this time but it has been sitting outside in the weather... it cleaned up nicely considering how dry the wood was! I used Howard's Feed-N-Wax to condition the wood and then sprayed it with a clear coat to protect my Valentines from any wax residue that might soak into the paper from the wood (the product I used is definitely not greasy or anything, but I just wanted to make extra sure that these vintage Valentines didn't get damaged).

I tied red and white baker's twine across the front several times.

And then I used miniature clothespins to hang the Valentines from the twine.

I used some pink scrapbooking dimensional stickers to spell out "Valentine" on the top. (If you look close enough, you can see that I had to make one of the Es because I only had one!😉)

The second way I found to display my Valentines is with picture stands like the Upcycled Doorknob Photo Holders I made and an old flower frog.

I do have some newer Valentine cards that my mom has made me over the years too that I wanted to put out.

I picked up a wooden heart-shaped letter holder on a recent thrifting trip and painted it pink!

And now those cards are in it... easy to take out and look at!

And finally, I framed the most special one of my vintage collection. It's one I received in 3rd grade... from a boy 😆 haha!

I picked up a simple frame at the Dollar Store and just used some scrapbook paper behind the Valentine.
