How To Cleverly Reuse Your Old Photos

You’re the proud owner of many photographs but you simply don’t know what to do with them? And you don’t like the idea of your photos being trapped in a computer or an old photo album? But trust us, besides taking albums out every once and a while or making a photo collage, there are many creative alternatives to reuse your old photos. And here we will show you some of the most interesting ways to share them with the world:

1. Light up the room with your photo memories!

Print out some of your favorite photos and find jars or glasses that you can put candles in. Measure and cut your photos, put them around the glass and light up your space with your memorable moments. And just so you know, these candleholders look great at daylight too!

2. Make your own photo calendar!

The idea is pretty simple – just find a large board or a thick paper and glue your photos on the top, and add a plain calendar for next year on the bottom. You can even make the one with different photo for each month, fill in the personal calendar with special dates of your loved ones or customize it and make a great gift for someone you care about.

3. Laminate your photos and have some fun!

Find happy portraits of your family members (or friends), print them out and laminate them. Then give each person from the photograph a dry-erase marker and have some fun! You can easily grow a pair of moustaches, get a pair of cool looking glasses or try out some new hairstyles. Perfect fun for the young ones!

4. Decorate your bookshelves with some background photos!

You can stop searching for the most beautiful frame for your photo and just use your bookshelves as an area to perfectly display your precious moments. Use old photos or print out some new ones, put them in the back and let it create world to itself. You can arrange them in such a way that they tell a story or be spontaneous and let them be completely random.

You can always use your photos to create unique cards that can represent a personal touch to a nicely wrapped gift or a great reminder of unforgettable moments if you use them as postcards. You can even choose a group of photos (family members, certain birthday party over the years, a favorite holiday) and then find people, places, and items that will match your theme.
