Don’t settle for drab candles on your next shindig at home. Try this simple DIY project to showcase the best Lomographs of your house or the places you’ve visited. This would work best if the photo you’ll be using is shot from the front, as it’ll look seamless.

    FANTASTIC! I love taking photos of buildings and I don't even use my prints after scanning them so this is perfect.
    I bet it could work really nicely with photos of people and cats too!
