    Before you do anything with them, including removing and throwing away, make sure they don't have asbestos in them. My brother-in-law and his best friend both died of mesothelioma caused by it. Get a test kit at a hardware store.

    Then once they are clean use as bulletin boards, jewelry displays, art. Pinterest has ideas for Dropped Ceiling Tiles.

    Hold off on using them until they are tested, as Vanessa Simmons said. You don't want asbestos being dispersed, so put them in a sealed trash bag, while wearing suitable coveralls and an asbestos mask. If you find they do contain asbestos, they must be disposed of in an environmentally safe manner.

    You can frame it, paint it, and stick some nails in there to turn it into a jewelry organizer

    Once in New Orleans, I saw several that had been used as canvases and painted on.

    If no asbestos, nail them as insulation to the studs of a garden/hobby shed, inside a water heater storage closet, under a porch, unfinished garage, etc. Or attach to hinged panels for sound deadening where kids practice music (paint or decorate).

    If they are safe, paint a large initial stencil and a border and hang with a ribbon. Great on a door or wall.
