Photo booth props from found objects


So I found these fun photo booth props that I made for my grand-aunt's 90th birthday bash last November when I was sorting through my "save-it-for-a-rainy-day" stash the other day.

Now it was easy to just head to the store to buy ready-made props of course but I thought to myself, "Why buy when I can make them, right?" [Apparently I enjoy creating more work for myself...*winks*]. 

And then of course, I just had to challenge myself to use some found objects around the house. Er, you know to reduce the amount I was hoarding. ;)

I had spray-painted some plastic containers to be the "pots" for my giant flowers [They were the large plastic containers for protein powder that I nabbed from a body-building uncle.] So I decided the lids would be great for the "frame" of my photo booth props.

I also had these old paintbrushes that had lived past their usefulness which I thought would be perfect "sticks" for my props.

The challenge was of course to attach the two items together in an elegant way. Okay, just in a way that it would at least hold together for the duration of the party. *LOL*

So I pleated some scrap paper that was then glued to "hold" the paintbrush and then attached the whole thing to the plastic cover. A black Sharpie + white pen and some chipboard letters completed my photo booth props. [If you were wondering about the words I actually used...wonder no more, I just tried to form plausible words from my chipboard letter stash...haha]

Here you have my ever-sporting mum and sister, posing with my photo booth props, including the giant paper flowers. 

Hope you are having a great week so far!

You are SO creative and resourceful! These are awesome, but the coolest part is that the handles are old paintbrushes.
