It’s almost summer, which means that wedding season is approaching! If you’re getting married this summer or just having a summer soirée, craft up some of these quick and easy photo props for your guests to enjoy and snap some pictures with. The brilliant Ilyssa Minkus shows you how it's done.



step 1

Download and print out the template. Cut out glasses, bowties, moustaches, or whatever other photo props you might want for your photo booth. Be creative! You can have speech bubbles, or specific icons related to your party.


step 2

Now comes the fun part – decorating! There are so many different ways to decorate photo props. We used gemstone embellishments here, but you could use cards to make tiny paper flowers, stripes, polka dots, or just do some color blocking!

Pro Tip

The special stylus that comes with diamond painting kits is ideal for picking up the gemstones. There are also lots of great adhesive gemstones available.


step 3

Use hot glue to attach a wooden dowel onto one of the sides of the prop, and you’re done!
