•Album art frames
Step 1: Narrow down your collection
Handkerchiefs recall a more genteel era, when people politely offered them up to friends and strangers in need. Today, vintage versions are sold in an array of patterns and make a colourful art alternative that can inject patina and history into your decorating scheme. Sort through your collection and select a few prints: I chose blue and red versions.
Step 2: Place hankies into frames
Picture frames with a slim profile, like these album art frames from Urban Outfitters, won’t overpower small-scale prints. Don’t worry if the hankies don’t fit the frames exactly; seeing the finished edges adds extra texture and dimension. Use a blank piece of white paper to create a backdrop for any hankies that don’t reach the perimeter of the frame.
Step 3: Hang frames in a grid
A simple grid helps bring order to a mix-and-match collection. Place each frame about 2" apart. Since they’re all the same size, it’s easy to change up the order of the prints as desired later. Pair them with a no-frills industrial task lamp and simple furniture like a rustic table to keep the look from feeling old-fashioned.

Curtain Made of Handkerchiefs by roses, via Flickr - I love the idea of stitching a bunch of vintage handkerchiefs together. Instead of using it as a curtain, I might turn it into a quilt.
