DIY Idea: Photobooth

I was perusing one of my fave little online photography stores and came across this... cute cute cute!!


The background is made of streamers, which would be a super easy, budget-friendly pop of color in a DIY photobooth! And they have this little Chalkboard Speech Bubble that is too cute for words...or is it?!?! ;)

We did something similar, except that we had speech and thought bubbles made from foam core covered with Dry Erase material.  We used a marker to outline each one, so that the edges would be clearer in photos.

Hello Mr. Lightbulb!  This just gave me an idea!


I am doing a "traditional" photobooth because I want my guests to have the instant gratification of having the photostrip in their hands.


I wasn't going to do props because...well...to be honest....the thought of hundreds of people putting on the same hat, goofy glasses, etc....kind grosses me out.  So, I wasn't going to do any props.


However, I think now...I am going to purchase two small frames and make them into chalkboards for folks to use as props.  They will be small enough to fit in the booth and add a little fun to the pics. Yay!

That is an awesome idea. I want a photobooth so bad but dont want to DIY yet one more thing and the rentals are a little over my budget. Its so fun to look and these pictures and daydream about them though lol.

This is so freaking cute. I am doing a DIY photobooth and this could be so much fun! It is very bright and happy! I could use tropical colors in line with my tropical wedding in Jamaica!

@ Nautical- I'm sure you could just set the camera up on a tripod and maybe ask a few friends or family to help with it in shifts, or even just let people figure out who to ask by themselves!! :)
