DIY Rustic Photo Booth

I had such a great time putting together this fun PHOTO BOOTH for a couple events we had in our barn this fall. With everyone having camera's on their phones, it is fun to provide a place for friends to be goofy and pose for a photo.

I started with a couple old doors that I used to use as back drops for craft show displays.  They were already hinged together, but we used a little wire around the door knobs to give them extra strength. 

Then I gathered some props to add interest to the back drop. Since we were doing the photo booth for fall events I went with a Halloween theme.  But this could be done for a spring event with baskets of flowers and burlap or a winter event with a Christmas tree and presents as props.

I perched a crow on top of one door.

Hung an empty vintage frame  on another door

Hung a chandelier with twine from the rafters.

Then I stretched cobwebs all over the photo booth and made a sign to hang on a door knob.

A large black wooden frame and an extra large old window frame were provided for people to pose behind if they wished.  But pictures looked good without the frames too!

I filled a clothes basket with hats, wigs, masks, glasses, mustaches, and a few other silly items.

It was fun seeing people laugh and giggle as they took pictures in this make shift Photo Booth

Lots of fun memories!
