How To Make Football And Helmet Party Photo Booth Props
Follow these steps, and in just a few minutes you’ll have your football photo accessories ready to go!
Start by painting your wood helmet and football with a couple of coats of craft paint.
I chose colors based on our local high school team but you can pick your favorite team as a theme for this project.
Cheering on an NFL team in the big game? Be sure to decorate your props to match!
Attach your stick handles to the backside of your football and helmet props using the self-adhesive on the stick handles. Just peel and stick the handles to the back of the dried wood shapes.
Pro Tip: The adhesive on the sticky stick fan handles is really strong so it’s worth taking a moment to be sure you’re placing the stick handle in the correct place the first time because you can’t “re-do” it!
You can use craft paint, paint pens, stickers, and more to decorate the helmet to match your favorite team’s colors.
Want to add a logo but don’t have a sticker with your team’s logo on it? Try printing one from the internet and using decoupage medium to put it on your painted helmet or freehand it with a paint pen if you’re artistically-inclined.
I used a paint pen on the football to get the white details. 🙂
How To Make Football Glasses Photo Booth Props
It’s time to make those fun football glasses!
To make the football glasses, start by adding eye holes to two foam footballs. I used a circle cutter with my Sizzix machine to add the holes. You can use a circle punch or even just trace a circle object onto the football and use your scissors.
Then, hold the footballs up to your face in the mirror with a slight overlap to determine eye hole location. Once you’ve determined how much overlap you need, use tacky glue to adhere the two together in the right place.
Peel and stick the sticky handle to the back of your football glasses. And…done!
Now all of your football party photo booth props should be ready for the big party. That was easy, right?
Tip For Decorating Photo Booth
We decorated a large foam frame to make our photo booth complete. You can also easily customize it to reflect any team that you are cheering on this fall. I like to use large ribbons to wrap around the frame along with foam stickers and letters to make it really stand out.
