These days, photo booths are a must-have for any party. It’s a good way to get the party started, and the guests will have photo prints as keepsakes to remind them of all the fun they had.
People usually hire a photo booth service for their parties, but this service can be quite expensive. So we figured, why not assist you with some inventive DIY photo booth ideas? They’re simple to make and inexpensive, using materials that can be found anywhere.
You can use any of these ideas to set up your photo booth at a birthday party, baby shower, or wedding reception.
1. Chalkboard photo booth
This is for you if you have the creativity and skills to turn a blank canvas into something that could potentially be the center of attention at your party.
Prepare a blackboard and chalks, and begin doodling! Make it memorable by including memorable quotes, illustrations, or jokes. Make sure that when people see their photos in the photo booth, they remember your party.
Begin drawing from both vertical sides and the top horizontal side. You are not required to cover every inch of the surface. Because people will be standing in front of it, it is acceptable to leave the center blank. Simply ensure that the edges are well-decorated.
2. Cupcake foils wall
It turns out that you can achieve a glam look for your photo booth without spending a lot of money. You can make a sparkly backdrop out of cupcake foils and silver cords. Simply flatten the foils, fold them in half, and insert the cord between the folds. The folds are glued together, the cords are hung, and you’re done!
3. Tassel garlands backdrop
Using tassel garlands for your photo booth is a fun way to liven up your party. If you’re feeling daring, you can make the tassels out of crepe paper, tissue paper, or metallic paper.
4. Hanging frames
A photo booth that also serves as party décor? So why not?
A hanging frame photo booth certainly earns a lot of DIY points; it’s simple, easy to make, and looks fantastic. You can use open-back picture frames, make your own poster board, or buy photo frames online.
Decorate your frames to match the theme of your party! To make the frames more lively, paint them, wrap fabric or crepe paper around them, or glue flower decorations to them.
5. Cloth-draped string lights
Few people consider using string lights and cloth to create a backdrop for a photo booth, which is a shame because the results are spectacular for such little effort!
Simply hang the string lights vertically and place the cloth on top of each light. You can be creative with the colors, but pastels are best for keeping the background subtle so that the guests can shine.
6. Balloon wall
A slew of balloons is sure to be a hit with the kids. Adults, on the other hand, can use it to create a fantastic photo booth with minimal effort. All you need are balloons in the colors of your party theme, a pump, and threads.
When the balloons are fully inflated, tie a few of them together and scatter the ‘groups’ horizontally along the length of your photo booth. Your guests will have a great time taking pictures in between the balloons!
7. Paper rosette backdrop
With a limited budget, you can still have fun and an amazing photo booth, as this paper rosette backdrop demonstrates. This backdrop does not require any special paper; you can make it with any type of paper you have on hand.
Although it appears to be a complicated process, it is actually quite simple and straightforward. All you need is paper, a hot glue gun, and scissors. The remaining steps involve folding and sticking the paper together. For more information, see this paper rosette backdrop tutorial.
