How To Create a DIY Photobooth

I just love a fun and quirky photobooth! I recently created one for my book club and family for the holidays. The possibilities are endless but let's talk about the must-have's.

1. Background- I love using fabric (push pins to adhere to your walls), wrapping paper (scotch tape), pipe and drape (curtains) or you can build something custom.

2. Props- This is a must to keep it fun and exciting. I typically go with a theme (Christmas, Baby Shower, etc.) but props that go with any photo booth are fun hats, mustaches, balloons, and a message board. You can buy props on etsy here or download some options here:

3. Camera- You'll need a digital camera and a tripod for ease. I prefer to put my camera on a 10 second delay so everyone can always be in the photo. Make sure you have lots of space for the photos on your memory card.

Always test your camera, lighting and props before your party. I typically share the event photos on Facebook or Snapfish after the event.
