Family photos make for beautiful décor, and turning them into something you can display can become a fun arts and crafts project! If you’re looking for suggestions, I’ve got plenty of crafts you can make with old family photos!
Plant a Family Tree
An excellent way to organize and showcase all your family photos is to create a family tree. It doesn’t take much, just some poster board, drawing utensils, and many photos! You can reach back generations to start your tree and go from there, seeing for yourself how your family has grown over the generations and branched out all over.
Make a Scrapbook
Making a scrapbook may sound like a simple project, but I find it the most creative as it offers a challenge for every page. I organize scrapbooks chronologically, but you can also classify them by person, special events, and more. Alongside the pictures, I like to add drawings, art, quotes, and even journal entries to make each page unique and special!
Create a Photo Wall Collage
Do you have an empty wall you’re not sure what to do with? Are you swimming in old photos? A photo wall collage can solve both your problems by putting those photos to use and making something distinctly beautiful! Make it yours by framing, hanging, pinning, or even gluing hundreds of old family photos in any way you’d like.
It’s an easy way to display as many photos as possible while creating a distinct accent wall. Get your old family snapshots ready for their showcase with some tips for restoring old photographs.
Design a Family Calendar
If you want to turn your photos into a gift for a relative, a personalized calendar featuring the old snapshots is a great choice. Various sites can make a calendar for you with your digitized photographs, but be sure to securely store your digitized pictures in a cloud storage service or with a photostick or photostick mobile.
Hopefully, I’ve given you some ideas of what to do with your vintage family photographs. There’s no limit to what you can make with old family photos if you ask me! What will you do with the pictures that have been in the family for generations?
