We love projects using photos here at DYSS, for a bunch of reasons… First… Ok, who doesn’t love to see photos of their loved ones, or a special time, or a cherished memory every day? We also happen to be fond of the art of photography itself… Oh, and did I mention, I went to college for a degree in Photography? Not that you need us to tell you that these DIY photo ideas & projects are worth your time and energy… you already knew that, or you wouldn’t be here! So let’s get right to our picks for dreamy projects with photos.
Photo Projects & Ideas
Photo Ideas for Instagram Shots
Want to know a cool project to make with all those Instagram photos? Try these Instagram sachets and bean bags from Ashley at ‘Little Blue Boo‘. These would make great homemade gifts too!
So let’s keep going with the Instagram love! Rachel from ‘The Crafted Life‘ created this colorful DIY Instagram photo idea with wood blocks and some decoupage. I love the funky look of this grouping, definitely a focal point!
I guess we all should be using Instagram, if only for it’s cool photo filters, ’cause here is another Instagram project! These love photo frames from ‘HP‘ are an easy photo idea and she shows you really detailed instructions on how to format and print out these photos for the “Love” part!
Photo Collage Ideas
I ADORE this DIY photo collage idea from ‘Kelli Murray‘. This takes just a branch, some string, and great snapshots! Doing it all in B&W makes it look cohesive, like artwork. Easy and fast project.
Our next photo is from ‘Creative Handmade‘. They used old window frames to showcase a collage of B&W photo’s. Creative!
Maryann at ‘Domestically Speaking‘ has this great tutorial for us… She made this window family frame, and for less than $5! Look closely at how this is one photo done throughout all the panes of the window, which definitely makes it unique.
Photo Ideas for Gifts
From ‘Instructables‘, make a unique tile picture for less than $3 with this step by step tutorial… This would make a great gift for a grandparent!
Aimee from ‘It’s Overflowing‘ made these shabby chic frames from a road side box! Oh my, these are wonderful! I would pay good money for these in any boutique or gift shop. Jump on over to find out how…
These DIY Polaroid photo coasters by ‘One Good Thing by Jillee‘ are so personal, they are my fav kind of photo idea. Can you imagine your guests going to set down a drink, and finding your family memories right there? Instant conversation starters!
Lastly, this is only a sorta DIY project, but too cool to leave out! ‘Social Print Studio‘ has this tear away calendar that you can purchase, but with your own photos for every day of the year!
