Birthday Polaroid Prop

Since last week was my birthday, I decided to make a post about this super cute photo prop I made for my 25th birthday party last year. I wanted something simple that all my guests could use to take adorable pictures and this was perfect!

I used:

Foam board (20”x30”)

Exacto knife

Plastic Flowers


Glitter paint

Hot glue gun

Permanent marker

To get the foam board into the basic shape of a polaroid, I sketched out a rectangle on the back. It was about 2 inches in from the left, right, and top sides and 5 inches from the bottom. Carefully using my exacto knife, I cut the rectangle out of the foam and set it aside for use in future projects. I straightened up the inside edges so there was no stray foam or paper bits and it was as smooth as possible and put my knife away.

Since I’m obsessed with glitter, I used the glitter paint to line the inside of my frame and set it aside to dry. While it dried, I set up my flowers. I wanted my arrangement to be simple, so I kept it to 3 peach roses surrounded by leaves. Using the scissors, I cut the stems off and then hot glued the arrangement in the top left corner.

After my paint was dry and my flowers were on, I wrote my birthday hashtag on the bottom so everyone who used the frame could use it to tag me. This was a simple $10 craft that made for really cute pictures! I can’t wait to see what your frames look like 😊 As always, if you take any fun pictures of any crafts, tag me on Instagram @SmileMakePeopleWonder and use the hashtag #DandelionSmiles.
