DIY Photobooth

DSCN3701

Let the fun times roll! I knew from the very beginning that I wanted a photo booth at the party, just a fun way for our guests to share in the memories of the day! They are so simple to put together too, as long as you have a few basic things (I’ll show you below how to make a couple things too) you can really have fun and go wild with your props! But first, you will need:

*A “point and shoot” camera with a timer

*A tripod

*Plastic Tablecloth (to hang as a background)

*Old halloween costumes (all sizes, any character!)

*Scrapbooking/construction paper

*Popsicle Sticks

Luckily I have a ton of scrapbook paper and was able to find some fun prints to make a couple props to go with our theme! I just cut out the shapes I wanted (i.e. bowtie, necktie, kiss lips and word bubbles) and glued them onto a thicker cardboard. I actually used the empty container from my almond milk, which was fantastic as it was white on the backside! I simply glued the scrapbook paper to the cardboard and let sit for a couple days before attaching the Popsicle sticks.

For the word bubbles I did the same steps as above, however I added some plain computer paper and wrote some messages relevant to our party! What a fun way for our guests to wish hubby a happy birthday!

Lastly, we had a couple of pails set up next to the camera and FILLED them with old kids costumes (thanks to my fabulous sister in law for bringing these by!) as well as some adult ones, cowboy hats, beads, boas, masks etc…Again, have fun with this one. The more costumes and props you have, the more creative your guests will get!
