DIY Photo Booth Props

Probably the best part about photo booths are the props and there's no better way to get elbow deep in a photo booth project than by sitting down to make some DIY Photo Booth Props. If you're not really crafty, don't worry, homemade photo booth props are actually pretty easy to make and don't take too much time. So, gather your things and let's get down to some good old photo booth prop fun.

If you're going to make your own photo booth props, you're going to need a few things. If you don't have these items, you can pick them up at practically any arts and crafts store. Here's what you'll need:
  • Stiffened felt or thick cardstock (whichever you prefer)
  • 12' bamboo sticks or wooden dowel rods
  • Hot glue gun with glue
  • Scissors
Now that you've gathered everything, you're ready to go. You can start to cut shapes out of your felt or cardstock and if you need a guide or template, search online for popular photo booth props to get an idea for what other people are using. You can even find some print out templates if you need.

Once you've cut out your props, simply fire up the glue gun (but be careful, they get really hot) and put a dab on the back of the prop and stick the dowel rod right into the glue. After about a minute or so, you'll have your very own DIY Photo Booth Prop.

Good Luck!
