Photo booths are a fun way to get guests involved at a party or wedding and bring out a lot of energy at any event. Adding fun props to a photo booth can encourage your guests to have even more fun and take some silly snapshots to remember the special day.
I drew up some simple prop shapes for you to download for free - big mustaches, girly lips, bow ties, and crazy glasses. You can print them at home and then customize them yourself with markers or colored pencils. The bow ties and glasses are blank slates for any color or pattern that you can think of! You can even make them match the color scheme of your wedding or party to keep a cohesive look.
Another idea is to include the prop-making as part of your party, like a kid’s birthday party, for example. Everyone can decorate their own props & then show them off in the photo booth!
Thick white cardstock paper
Markers or colored pencils
Embellishments like glitter or feathers
Wooden craft dowels
Step 1: Download the free PDFs and print onto 8.5” x 11” pieces of thick white cardstock paper. Click the links above to download.
Step 2: It's easiest to color in the props before you cut them out. Use different colored markers or colored pencils to bring the lips and mustaches to life. On the bow ties and glasses frames, try out different patterns like stripes or animal prints to give each one a unique look. If desired, add glitter or other embellishments like feathers or beads to make them your own!
Step 3: Carefully cut out the individual props and glue craft dowels on the backs.
Step 4: Gather the props in a vase or jar and place them right next to your photo booth to encourage your guests to get their silly on!
