How To Make A Photo Booth Frame For Baby Shower


Step 1. Measure for the photo booth frame for the baby shower

  • Prepare something sturdy for the frame, such as a large cardboard piece
  • Mark and cut the cardboard piece to form the DIY photo booth frame; frame props vary in size depending on the number of people you want in the photo
  • Mark and cut the cardboard piece into 36 x 24 for two people or 48 x 32 for three people
  • Note to use a rotary cutter than scissors when cutting cardboard pieces for a cleaner cut 
  • Rub the photo booth frame with sandpaper 
  • Make two pieces of the frame since you’ll put a foam board in between them 


Step 2. Reinforce the frame

  • Add a foam board underneath the cardboard baby shower photo booth frame to strengthen it
  • Measure the foam board according to the frame size and cut
  • Glue the foam board underneath the frame 
  • Add the other cardboard frame, so the foam board is sandwiched between them


Step 3. Decorate the frame

  • Consider the baby shower theme as inspiration for the photo booth frame
  • Paint the frame to hide the cardboard
  • If you also have the DIY photo booth, include the items and elements you used for it so props like the frame are cohesive with it
  • You can also add a sign onto the frame; hashtags are popular nowadays with baby showers
  • Paint the cardboard frame according to the color scheme of the party
  • You can also write over the frame or glue baby items on it 
  • Wrap the frame with a bow, add small stuffed toys, or use stickers that will quickly show on the photo


What Are Some Good Ideas For Baby Shower Photo Booth Props?

If you have a photo booth at the baby shower, make it more fun by providing a sign, props, or something the guests can hold when posing for pictures. The items should follow the party theme but are sizable enough to show in the photos. 

You can DIY these photo booth props for the baby shower, but they can also be bought cheaply at different party shops. You can be creative and incorporate the baby’s name into the designs. 

  • Text bubbles saying “Hello Mommy” “It’s a boy/girl,” or “Congratulations” 
  • Masks inspired by the baby shower (e.g., animal faces for a safari-themed party)
  • Baby stuffed toys and books
  • Oversized baby items like bibs and pacifiers
  • A sign that shows excitement for the baby’s arrival, like “Coming soon,” “Baby on board,” etc.,
  • A sign for specific baby shower guests like “Favorite Aunt,” “Best Grandma,” etc.,
  • Sashes
  • Crowns
  • Oversized picture frame
  • Balloons
  • Flowers
  • Food props

What Size Should A Photo Frame Prop Be?

The size of the DIY photo booth frame will depend on the number of guests you want to fit inside the frame. Baby showers are very social, so consider props that accommodate more than two people. 

Typically, this is around 48×32 inches. Then, don’t forget the other items used at the photo booth. 

The things should show in the pictures, and if it’s a sign, the wording should be easy to read. Something at least 7 inches big should be ideal for a photo booth prop.

An example of a baby shower photo booth frame you can buy from Etsy costs $22.49. You can personalize it and pick a size.
