We had a bit of a do on Halloween to celebrate our engagement with our extended family so obviously that called for the creation of a DIY selfie wall. It was a great addition to the party, was so easy to make and cost all of £7! Supplies:
- Crepe Paper – 2 sheets of black and 2 of white.
- Gold Foil Strands (I got mine from Ikea back in May for 25p a packet).
- A large piece of cardboard to act as your background
- A smaller piece of cardboard for the sign.
- Black and gold poster paint
- Sticky Tape
- Some garden wire to hang it all up
We shall start with the sign…
I cut the corners off my smaller cardboard rectangle to give my sign a nicer shape and then painted it black. I then took my gold paint and drew the outline of the sign and then painted the words… Pretty straight-forward and not very neat, but this was a last-minute addition which was successfully thrown together the night before the party!
We made the backdrop by taping strands of cut-up crepe paper to the larger piece of cardboard and separating each row with a layer of gold foil tinsel. All that was left to do was to hand it up on the back door and BAM… A DIY selfie booth! Here it is in action.
Some of the photos we have from our party are fantastic simply because of this wall. We also had a box of props which you can see being well utilised by my mum and I above! I know it’s quite popular to have a photobooth at your wedding but I quite like the thought of having a selfie station instead, and it’s a fraction of the cost! I’ll leave you with one last picture of me because I spent a crap-tonne of time on my hair and make up as the Bride of Frankenstein and I think I look fierce.
