How-to DIY

Creating DIY photo booth props are much easier than you may think and only take a few steps to achieve that perfect final product. Firstly, you’ll need to decide how many props you’re going to have available at your photo booth. Then you’re going to purchase heavy stock paper and wooden dowels for each prop. Be sure to purchase a few extras in case you make a mistake.

After printing your props on the heavy stock paper, you’ll need to determine where on the photo you’ll want to place your dowel for your guests to hold and use them most effectively. All that’s left to do is place a thin line or small beads of hot glue onto the back of the photo and place the dowel over top. Place your props somewhere safe to dry and voila!
