What #DisneySide @Home Celebration is complete without a photo booth and props? My husband and son did an awesome job creating our collapsible photo booth frame while I set out to make the backdrop and props.
I purchased the backdrop fabric from Hobby Lobby. The fabric is 45” wide / 7’ long and red with white polka dots. It was up against a wall and probably would have been fine, but the perfectionist that my husband is, put a white sheet behind it and it was perfect.
The props took some time, but were SO MUCH FUN to make! After I created each one, I glued and taped (there’s that perfectionism again) 12” bamboo skewers,
point side up, to the back of each prop. Below I have listed what you will need for each prop and the printable to go with it. You can print right onto your paper or use what you have printed as a pattern. I printed on thick paper and used them as patterns since I was creating from scratch.
I used my Cricut Expression with the Disney Mickey Font cartridge for the Minnie and Mickey ears. I set the ears to cut at 8.5” and the bow at 4.5” or 5”.
Mickey Ice Cream:
Dark Brown Cardstock
Glue Dots or Tape Runner
Large Craft Stick
Print the pattern and cut out the 2 different colors. Trace the 2 pieces onto the matching colors of cardstock, cut out and glue together. Add a large craft stick to the back of this one instead of a skewer. *Note* I only made one “front” to the ice cream. Whenever the kids grabbed it to hold it up, they had the “good” side facing them. I am going to go back and make another to glue to the back so it works either way.
Mickey Hands: Pointing and Thumbs Up
Here you can either print directly onto white cardstock or print and use as a pattern. There is a .pdf for both options. If you print and use as a pattern, you will need to draw in the black on Mickey’s hands.
Glue Dots or Tape Runner
Print the pattern and cut out the 3 different colors. Trace the 3 different pieces onto the matching colors of cardstock. Cut, glue, and draw in the black with a Sharpie.
Disney Stickers (any)
Print pattern onto white cardstock and cut out. Add your choice of Disney stickers. I used these Bulk Buy: Sticko Disney Embroidered Sticker Disney Title DEM-M004 (3-Pack)
But purchased at Hobby Lobby where they were cheaper.
Cricut Machine (optional) ADD LINK
Disney Mickey Font Cricut Cartridge (optional) ADD LINK
Silver Paint Pen, White Pencil, or Stickers if not using a Cricut
Print the pattern, trace onto black cardstock and cut out. I used my Cricut machine and Disney Mickey Font to cut out the “#DisneySide” onto adhesive vinyl I had from our Personalized Disney Cups craft ADD LINK. White cardstock can be used for the words, but I had a hard time getting them to cut and peel off correctly. You can write on the sign with a silver paint pen, a white pencil, or decorate with stickers if you do not have a Cricut machine.
So there you have it! Create, have fun, and come back and share some pictures from the #DisneySide photo booth YOU MADE!
