DIY Photo Booth Ideas for Your Next Event
Almost all the parties I go to have photo booths. It’s the new replacement to the giveaways we’ve come to known. It’s more personalized in my opinion and who doesn’t want a photo of yourself with your friends in a fun and playful setting. It may cost you a pretty penny to rent one but with arts and crafts in your back pocket, you can simply DIY your own photo booth. Here are some of my favorite inspirations for any event you’ll have.
Don’t feel like making your own props? Here’s some inexpensive ones that are tons of fun!
