Confession: I had never heard of a party photobooth until I started blogging. Crafters made all sort of clever designs on walls, and I wondered what in the world they were for? When I took a BlogShop class this summer there was a big ol’ photobooth where brave souls mugged for the camera. (I, of course, used a potted plant to hide my face. Very cool.)
I thought this holiday season was the perfect time to try one out. Because around my family? After a cocktail? Bring on the camera!
I love the idea of having a designated spot to capture memories. It’s an easy project that makes a holiday gathering warm and memorable. As a hostess, I need more things like scented candles and fresh flowers that deliver maximum impact with minimum effort.
Last Minute DIY Photo Booth
This DIY photo booth backdrop came together in record time with just a few supplies from the dollar store.
- Wrapping paper
- Snowflake ornaments
- Double sided tape
- Fishing line (or other string)
Tape a roll of wrapping paper high on the wall and let it hang all the way to the floor.
Tie fishing line to snowflake ornaments and tape them to the ceiling at various heights.
Finish by camouflaging the floor with a blanket or gift bags stuffed with tissue paper.
Create a festive mood with soft Christmas music, dim the lights and burn holiday candles. Mix up a pitcher of cranberry margaritas (a necessary ingredient, if you ask me) and mug away!
