Remember way back (in my last post) when I talked about buying this?
Do you also remember the post before that where I talked about making these?
Well this weekend I put the two together to make a DIY Photo Booth for my daughter's "red carpet" 12th birthday party.
The project was inspired by this pin. (Original source found here. Definitely take a minute to check it out!)
After removing the glass and the picture from the frame I added these hooks to the top of the frame. It was pretty easy. I just drilled two tiny holes and then screwed them in.
Then I purchased a length of gold chain from Home Depot, strung it through my banister, and attached the ends to the hooks.
After that I added a backdrop. Talk about jerry-rigged. I took two plastic tablecloths, folded over a piece at the top of each one to make a pole pocket and then threaded a length of twine through. I tied the ends of the twine to some Command Hooks and added a few thumbtacks for good measure. (Thankfully we have textured walls/ceilings so the tiny thumbtack holes don't show at all.)
Since our guests were arriving after dark, I added a lamp to illuminate things a bit. The entire set-up is pictured below.
This is how it looked through my camera...
...And of course I was able to crop out the parts that fell beyond the curtain.
|Naturally I removed the wire before our guests arrived.|
And here's the end result. I have to say, the girls loved it!
And so did my husband. Nice 'stache, honey!
Here's what things looked like behind the scenes. Check out the paparazzi!
And be sure to come back later in the week for more birthday party madness!
