I love photo booths!! I think they are a must for any birthday, baby shower or wedding!! How cute is this model (my friend’s daughter)? She had so much fun at our Summer Social/Frozen party (a big housewarming, Stella & Dot and Frozen party we had at the end of June). It was the first party we hosted at our new house and it was so much fun for the kids and adults alike! I had so much fun making this Frozen party frame prop and I hope you get inspired to make one for your upcoming Frozen birthday!
It was one of those happy accidents where I had attempted to make a photo prop for my hostess’ Cinco de Mayo Stella & Dot trunk show, but it never came together in time! I hate it when craft projects don’t turn out and it was in the back of my mind for weeks: “How can I use this pink-painted frame???” I got my eureka moment after I had gone back to the craft store and found some cute unfinished wooden cut outs.
My hubby had a cute whiteboard he had gotten as swag at his job and I converted it into a cute “Strike a Pose!” sign with everybody’s favorite snowman, Olaf! I cut two strips of glitter snowflake card stock and taped them on the top and bottom of the white board, then I cut the Olaf sign to fit in between–secured with double-sided tape. Scroll down for the FREE PRINTABLE Olaf sign!
Head over to Michael’s and ask for the laser-cut wooden frames, you’ll soon find an isle that looks like this! These frames are perfect for photo booth props because they are so lightweight! They come in a variety of styles and sizes and are oh so paintable!
And I won’t lie folks, this craft project requires A LOT of painting! I did four coats each for the front and back (because I’m ridiculous) of the frame. You also have to pay special attention to paint the inside edges of the laser cuts–this is some
tedious intricate work!
Then I painted the wooden tulips and snowflakes and decorated them with sticky-back rhinestones I found in the scrapbooking section of Michael’s (made my the Recollections brand). The tinsel-like iridescent glitter is also from Recollections at Michael’s.
After painting the wooden snowflakes (also scored at Michael’s) I used sticky-back rhinestones and a glass button glued in the center of each. I did two different blues, two snowflakes in turquoise and the other two in light blue. I found this crafter’s glue at Hobby Lobby and it worked wonderfully and dries clear! I also loved that it wasn’t a runny type of glue more of a thick paste. I used it to glue down all the wooden elements, but I used a glue stick for the flocked paper diamonds. This frame has been handled a lot and has stood up wonderfully!
I finished the design off with a few flower gem stickers and a few rhinestones placed at the ends of the scrolls. I love the bright, clean look of the finished product!
