Tag Archives: Photo booth
With an upcoming Halloween/Birthday party, I wanted a huge frame for a photo booth. Turns out, it is a cute overall decor item too!
It started when the fall clean up for our city was taking the large garbage items. I looked a the huge piece of press board we had in the garage and wanted it re-purposed or thrown out. With the upcoming party, I thought I’d repurpose it for a photo booth.
Step one: Find a work station. I had nothing that large, so I used to long tables.
Step two: Measure out and trace your frame.
Step three: Use a drill to make starting your cut and making corners easier.
Step four: Use your favorite saw for the job. I love my jigsaw.
Step five: Admire your handiwork. Take a break and grab your choice of covering.
Step six: Cover the baby up. I was going for a Halloween look, so I used a Dollar Store black plastic table cloth and packing tape, as I misplaced the duct tape I wanted. Your size and shape makes a difference in how you wrap. Mine was really large and I made it six inches thick the entire way around the frame. So I cut the table cloth into strips and taped it.
Step seven: Admire your handiwork again. It’s not too shabby and it didn’t take long.
Step eight: Add embellishments like cobwebs and other decor.
For the party, I’ll move it out and prop it up, but for now, I rather like it by the door.
