Everything You Need to Set Up A DIY Photo Booth For Your Next Party

By: Alicia Feb 26, 2014

A roundup of all the components you need to create an awesome DIY photo booth for your next party.
These days, no party is complete without a photo booth. They're not only a fun addition to any shindig, but they're a great way to capture memories and they create the most meaningful party favors in the world.

The reality is, creating a custom photo booth using the electronics most of us already have around the house (e.g. your computer, digital camera, printer, phone) isn't very complicated. In fact, it's relatively straightforward. And, when you combine the "photo taking device" with some custom photo props or easy DIY backgrounds, your photo booth becomes the life of the party.

Follow along as we share everything you need to know about creating a custom photo booth for the… Continue Reading
