For my baby’s 1 year birthday party we decided to have a photo booth for people to have fun taking silly pictures. Today I am going to show you how I made my photo booth props. Here is what you will need.
-Silhouette Cameo shapes/or other props (you could even find free shapes online and cut them out by hand if you don’t have a Silhouette)
I found these wooden dowels at my local craft store. They are 3/16″ in diameter which ended up being the perfect size. They weren’t too big and I also felt like they were strong enough so that the kids wouldn’t break them.
As usual I turned to my Silhouette Cameo for shapes to use as props. These are the shapes that I chose but they have so many different ones on their site to choose from:
After I cut out all of the shapes on the silhouette I used some Mod Podge to glue them onto the dowels. I let them dry for about 15 minutes and they were ready for action.
I used a chalk board plaque to direct people over to the area of the photo booth.
To make the chalk board, I picked up a wooden plaque from my local craft store and painted it with this black chalkboard paint. I originally tried to write on it with sidewalk chalk but the result was not to my liking. I instead ordered these chalk markers and they work amazing. They write so crisp and I just use a wet paper towel after the event is over to wipe off the chalk, super easy cleanup.
I use this chalk board plaque for almost every get together that I have, I love it.
It was a really fun evening of food, fun and a spoiled rotten little girl. Cannot believe is she 1!!
