#1 Christmas Photo Wallpaper Mural

As a fun and inexpensive way to share Christmas photos, and any other photos that are special to you, transform your photos into a fun wallpaper mural to stick to your wall, door, fridge or any other smooth surface in your home.

You can organise a photo wallpaper mural via various online suppliers. There is even a peel and stick option that works like a classic sticker and can be removed without leaving residue.

 To make the photo mural look extra festive, add some Christmas bows with floral and berry picks or decorations throughout the photos once they are on the wall. How fab is this idea!

#2 Christmas Photo Wall Art

Sharing Christmas photos doesn’t have to only include the photos. Use a combination of festive, decorative wall art displays or free Christmas downloads and add some table top trees or cute Christmas characters or animals to create a truly unique and vibrant way to share Christmas photos while also create a stunning décor feature in your home.

#3 Christmas Photo Tiles

Another great way to display and enjoy Christmas photos around your home is to create some 3D photo art. Use Christmas photos and ceramic tiles to create unique decorative pieces for your walls, personalised coasters, or even ceramic fridge magnets.

This is a great way to share Christmas photos for gifts too. When you are done making your photo tiles or coasters, tie them up with some Christmas ribbon to create a neat-looking gift pack.

If you are not feeling particularly crafty but still love the idea of Christmas photos on ceramic tiles, there are plenty of online retailers that will create it for you using your treasured Christmas photos that you supply.

#4 Christmas Photo Bunting

Bunting is not just for birthday parties; it is a fantastic way to share Christmas photos during the festive season too. Bunting automatically brings atmosphere into the home and is so easy to put up. Tie it from curtain rods, window frames or specially-mounted hooks. This way to share Christmas photos is completely portable and makes for a brilliant Christmas gift in the mail too.

Kmart have a photo bunting kit that is ideal for making your own personalised bunting. Or, you can design and order your printed photo bunting directly from online retailers such as Zazzle.

Hang some Christmas tree decorations at either end of the bunting (or between your photos if they don’t weigh too much) to finish the job in perfect festive fashion.
