Every holiday, your in-laws insist on the family photo around the tree. While you love the family together in one shot, your walls are demanding variety.
It’s time for a change of scenery, and no we are not suggesting you leave the house for a photo shoot. Bring the photo shoot indoors this holiday season! We’ve created all the props you need to create your own holiday photo booth. Everyone in the family will love getting in on the action, and the photos will be forever memorable and, finally, replace the family tree mug.
First, find a place in your home that doesn’t have a busy background, like a white wall. Ideally, take the photos in daylight so you have great natural light coming into the home. If you choose to take the photos near a window, make sure the light is not shining directly on the wall.
Next, cut out bubble words on your Cricut Explore. Write any message you want in tune with your family’s personality, or try this Ready to Make project: Christmas Photo Booth Props.
Grab props for your booth, like a Santa hat, stockings, or mistletoe. Check out our Silly Booth Props so you can create props like an eyeglass, mustache, and more. You can even create a banner, like this Noel Banner, to hang in the background.
Grab your smartphone or camera and ask your guests to take photos of each other. Then post and share them online!
