Day 30: Holiday Ornament Photo Booth

DAY 30 is brought to you by, the lovely Nicole of the Rose Runs Wild blog: Hello and Happy Holidays to you! I’m Nicole from the blog Rose Runs Wild. On Rose Runs Wild I blog about life as a mama to a 12 year old with a big red afro, my two pups and being engaged to the love of my life. Because my son is older I find it hard to find crafts to do that he will be interested in. When Chelsey asked me to be apart of this I knew I wanted to come up with something that all ages can enjoy doing, even moody pre-teens!

I’m happy to bring you the Holiday Ornament Photo Booth!

All you need is ::

Polaroid Camera (I used a mini Instax but any Polaroid camera will work)

Polaroid Film

Wrapping Paper

Tape

Hole Punch

Glue, glue sticks or hot glue gun

Ribbon

A big box full of your favorite crafting materials

1)      For the backdrop I used wrapping paper from the year before that we had left over. If you would like to by a new roll that works too or even fabric would look great and take away some of the glare from the camera flash. I found a bare wall and taped the wrapping paper to the wall tall and wide enough so two people could stand up and pose.

2)      Strike a pose and start taking your photos! Get creative and have fun! If you want to make props for the photos or a banner, go for it! Those always make for fun and hilarious photos. I made a Santa beard out of cotton balls, a piece of construction paper and some yarn for Logan and I to use.

3)      After your photos have developed punch a hole in the top and run some ribbon or even an ornament hook through the hole.

4)      Start decorating! Logan and I pulled our craft box out and got to work putting googily eyes, glitter and anything else we could find on our photos to make them special to us.

5)      Let them dry and hang on the tree! These would also make great gifts for grandparents or loved ones. You could also make a banner with them or hang them around the house. The possibilities are endless!

I hope you have fun with your family doing this DIY, I know we did! It would also be a blast to do at a holiday party with a group of friends and family. Thank you so much to Chelsey for having me a part of this awesome series! Happy Holidays!

Nicole, Rose Runs Wild
