Your digital photos can have a meaningful role in your home decor. You may have that one photo that holds a special place in your heart, but you don’t know how to share it with the world. There’s good news for you. You don’t have to keep it hidden in your phone anymore. You can transform it into a home decor piece and put it on display for your visitors to see.
So, if you’re wondering how to share your digital photos, this article discusses five ways to creatively turn them into home decor. Read on for details.
1. Turn Them Into Canvas Prints
Canvas has a way of radiating a sense of timeless elegance. If this is right up your alley, you may want to print your photos on canvas sheets. To do this, you can visit a local canvas store and order a customized print.
Alternatively, you may opt for the online option. Some sites offer the option of creating your own customized framed canvas. Once you upload your photo, you get to specify your size preferences for the final art piece. Qualified artists then work on creating the art piece according to your specifications. Such companies are convenient and have attractive features as they offer you:
- A range of canvas dimensions to choose from
- Different frame designs
- High-quality printouts, as they use archival inks
- Fast shipping speeds and worldwide delivery
Upon delivery, hang your canvas print on a central wall, such as on the mantel area. You can then relish in its magnificence. And when you have guests over, it can even be a good conservation starter.
2. Make Pop Art Out Of Them
Pop art was a popular trend back in the 1960s. It involves transforming real-life photos into cartoon-like images. This style somehow managed to resurface back in the art industry in the recent past, probably because it gives a classical touch to portraits.
To transform your digital photos into pop art, you may use pop art software or apps. Alternatively, you may seek professional services from a pop art artist.
You can then turn it into framed canvas wall art for your living room or bedroom walls. If none of your friends have this type of art yet, you can start the trend in your circle.
3. Use Them To Design Wallpapers
You don’t always have to coat your walls with solid color paint or conventional wallpapers. You can engage your creative juices and make a wallpaper from one of your photos. You may choose a picture of yourself, your family, pet, a landscape that caught your eye, or any other favorite camera capture.
For this, you should visit a custom wallpaper store and give them your requirements. Once you collect the final wallpaper, stick it on one of your walls to create an accent wall.
4. Make A Jigsaw Puzzle Photo
Jigsaw puzzles are trending in the home decor scene. Photos made from these puzzles comprise numerous tabs joined to form the complete image.
To make a jigsaw puzzle from your photo, find an online art store that designs puzzle photos. You can then upload your digital picture on the site and specify your preferred dimensions and other specifications.
Joining the pieces will be a fun activity, especially if you’re doing it with friends. You can then mount the image up on a wall in your living room, bedroom, hallway, or another place of choice. This unique piece will surely demand more than a glimpse from your guests.
5. Print Them On Ceramic Or Glass
The beautiful thing about creativity is that it knows no bounds. Aside from printing and hanging art on your wall, you can print it on your kitchenware, such as ceramic or glass mugs. Afterward, artistically arrange the crockery.
You could hang them on wall hooks, align them in rows on shelves, or place one on the kitchen island. You can also arrange them in other creative ways to improve your home decor.
Your digital photos don’t have to be kept away in your phone. You can use them artistically to decorate your home. You may print them on canvas sheets, make pop art out of them, make a jigsaw puzzle photo, or print them on ceramic or glass. You can also try other methods such as making a photo garland, putting the pictures in a candle jar, creating a photo tree, or making a photo clock. These methods will bring out your creative style and add glamor to your interior space.
