Gathering at the family dinner table is always a special occasion. What makes the meal feel even more special is when it is lit by candlelight. These photo luminaries take candlelit dinners to the next level. Add your favorite photos and you can have different luminaries for different holidays.
6. Photo wreath
Why use one picture frame when you can combine tons of them while keeping them all in one place? A wreath is always a wonderful way of decorating for the holidays. Next Christmas, impress your family by crafting one out of your family's best photos just like this gorgeous wreath by Infarrantly Creative.
7. Accordion photo box
Next time you go on a family vacation, skip using a standard photo album to store your photos. When you use your imagination, the ways you can organize your photos are endless. This adorable accordion photo box is just one example.
8. Glass pendant necklace
Unless you carry them in your wallet, photos can be hard to keep with you at all times. That's why we love this glass necklace pendant by Little House of Four so much. You can keep your favorite memories with you and also look super stylish while doing so.
9. Canvas photo
Sending photos off to get printed on canvas can be more expensive than you might think. What a lot of people don't know is that you can cut the costs by doing it yourself. Once you get your favorite photos enlarged all you need are a few other cheap items to complete your project and hang your beautiful new canvases.
10. Image transfer on pillow
As previously mentioned, you can transfer a photo onto almost any material, including fabric. While this tutorial by Canary Street Crafts uses a graphic image, a photograph would also work with this method. What an awesome way to personalize your living room decor!
