Pie Plate Frame:

Start with an old-fashioned tart pan--the kind where the bottom of the pan pops out. Use a family heirloom or buy one at a consignment or thrift shop. Put the bottom of the tart pan on top of a photo and trace around it. Cut out the photo circle, spray the back of it with spray adhesive (or use double-sided tape) and attach it to the tart pan bottom. Or print your photo directly onto printable sticker paper (found at office supply stores) and cut it into a circle using the tart pan bottom as a guide.

Cooling Rack Photo Display:

Use an old cooling rack to display your photos. First, weave a colorful ribbon around the edge to frame it out. Add photos with small clothespins from a craft store, then hang it on one of your walls using wire. You could also spray-paint the front and back of the cooling rack first (make sure you do this outside and let it dry completely).

Kitchen Tile Photo Coasters:

Buy plain kitchen tiles at a home improvement store, then cut out photos to fit the tiles. Apply 1 coat of craft glue to the front of each tile with a brush. Place a photo on the wet glue on each. Apply 2 to 3 coats of craft glue to back of each tile and let dry. Apply 2 to 3 coats of craft glue to front of each tile and let dry. Stick felt pads to the back of each tile. Let the coasters dry for a couple of days before using.

Light Box Candle Holder:

Start with a glass votive, then print photos onto transparent paper called vellum (found at office supply stores), scaling the photos to fit in a strip around the votive. Cut out the strip of vellum and attach it around the outside of the votive with double-sided tape. Pop in an LED light.
