New Year’s Eve Photo Props

DIY New Years Eve Photo Booth Props

One of my favorite things to do to ring in the new year is to host a fun New Year’s Eve Party!  We love having a few friends over, play games, eat lots of yummy food and ring in the new year with a bit of sparkling cider.  This year we’re including a photo booth so today I am sharing these fun New Year’s Eve Photo Props and I am really excited about how they turned out!

They will be so fun to use for a big group photo as we celebrate the beginning of a new year.  I laid mine out and took some other fun shots with my kids, but come party time we will be holding them while we smile for the camera!  You could also hang these on a wall and stand in front of them for a photo too.

Supplies needed to make this project:

  • FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam: Sheet, 1″ x 12″ x 36″ (depending on how large your letters are, you may need multiple sheets)
  • FloraCraft® StyroCutter® Plus
  • 12″ Wooden Dowels
  • Sharpie Marker
  • Foam Paint Brush
  • Acrylic Paint in your choice of color (I used black paint)

You will begin by tracing letters/numbers onto the foam sheets using a Sharpie marker.  You can freehand the letters or print large letters from your computer and use them as a stencil.

Use a FloraCraft® StyroCutter® Plus to cut the letters and numbers out of the foam.  This is the easiest way to cut foam and it makes virtually no mess.  Read the instructions carefully on the package and go slow.  If the wand is bending while you’re cutting the foam, you’re pressing too hard!

Once the letters are cut, use a foam brush to paint the fronts of them with acrylic paint.

Push a wooden dowel into the bottom of each letter/number.  If the dowels aren’t staying, you can add a dab of low-temp glue to help secure them.
