Monday Made It {Photo Booth Fun!}

Today I’m linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made It!  I absolutely love this linky because it helps keep me on track with all of my crafting goals for the summer! 

Monday Made It 1

Today’s project was a bit spur of the moment!  I have been wanting to set up a “photo booth,” at Meet the Teacher night for a few years, but I always seem to run out of time.  Yesterday, we were at Michael’s and my daughter spotted a wall full of these fun wooden photo booth props…


The best part was they were all 40% off!  Each piece was either 50 or 74 cents!  My youngest daughter turns 15 tomorrow and we thought, what a fun idea to set up a little photo booth fun to occupy her friends….and of course then I can reuse everything for my classroom!


We picked out some fun paint colors and used sponge brushes…it makes the painting so quick and easy!  I had a bunch of left over Christmas party paper plates that came in handy for painting.  I always throw the random left over seasonal paper plates in the crafting bin!


Today I ran by Dollar Tree to see if they had a few more fun props to add to the basket.  I ended up filling an entire basket with fun hats, some fairy wings, a glittery microphone, a coconut bra, a grass skirt and leis. 


We plan on hanging some colored butcher paper on the wall with a banner that says, “Happy Birthday Lindsey,” and the photo booth fun will be ready to go!  I think they are going to have a blast and it was all under $20!  Now to think up a hash tag for the girls to use when they post their pics!

Head on over to 4th Grade Frolics and link up your own Monday Made It or just see what everyone else made!


  1. Adorable! I was at Michael's today, but did not see these! I may have to make a return trip!

  2. Great idea to have a photo booth at Meet the Teacher! I always take pictures when the kids come for their Open House but I just have them stand in front of a generic, plain wall with their name card. Your ideas are much more fun!
