My wife loves making props for photo booths at parties. We have done this several times before, and it’s a lot of fun to take funny pictures with your friends. It also encourages people to take pictures, and helps preserve more memories of fun occasions.
This diy photo booth frame is a nice easy project for anyone who likes doing photo booths. It’s also nicer than foam frames, or foam board. It last longer too.
DIY Photo Booth Frame
I already posted the complete step by step instructions for making this photo booth frame in another article. What I wanted to show you today is a little different.
The whole reason to make a neutral photo booth frame is that it can be decorated. For example, the frame in the pictures was used for a bridal shower for a friend.
It only took my wife a short time to add the words using her Silhouette Cameo. Then, she added flowers to the corners to complete the look. Now that the occasion is over, she can take off the flowers, remove the sticker letters, and decorate the frame for the next party.
This time, the frame was not painted, as the color of the wood looked nice behind the letters and flowers. If you need to paint the frame, that’s easy too. You can always paint over it for the next occasion.
I enjoy making all kinds of things out of wood, and it’s nice to help out my wife with one of her projects.
It’s not too often that my woodworking and her crafting intersect, so I make it a point to make her something when she needs it.
This photo booth frame was a huge hit that the bridal shower. Her friend loved it, and everyone had a great time taking pictures. Not only did they get a ton of great shots, but the frame went with the party theme perfectly.
Photo Booth Frame Tips and Tricks
Here are some tips to get you through the process, and help you make and use this photo frame:
- As for diy projects for a birthday party, the photo frame is the most fun because you get to look back on all the memories when you review the pictures years in the future.
- You don’t have to follow the size recommendations in the linked post, you can make a small frame, large frame, or even a different shape like a square.
- Selfie frames are best used with a photo booth backdrop, but you can just use an open wall too.
- Even better, you can get people to take lots of pictures with their phones and email them all to one address so you can see them.
