Sweet Sassafras, it's cowgirl party time. A photo booth decoration is a fun idea for any birthday party. I wanted to create something amazing and I didn't want to use the wanted posted design. Our little pumpkin is to cute to be wanted and I wanted something different.
I am in love with this photo booth decoration and it was super easy to make. I think this one is my favorite.

4 Balsawood boards
Wood Stain Dark Walnut 27
Pink, blue, pink polka dot Cardstock
Hot Glue Gun
Pink Bandana Ribbon
My husband glued the four boards together into a square using Elmer's E7010 Carpenter's Wood Glue, Interior, 8 Ounces. Then we put something heavy on each corner to help the glue set overnight (we did this after the kids went to bed).
On a warm day I stained the boards in my garage. I used just one coat of the stain on the boards. For the stain I asked my parents what they had and used it. It was a perfect color because the pink looks brilliant on the dark walnut stain. I honestly didn't want to buy a can of stain for one project.
I also wanted the board to look rustic and not perfect.
Then it was time to decorate and create the photo booth frame. I had to change from my original plan because it just didn't look good. I created this design as I went. I hot glued all the pieces onto the frame. All the pieces were created with my Cricut Explore using Cricut Design Space and all the images are available with Cricut Access.
I always use the hot glue gun out of reach of my children, but I had to use it at the kitchen table because the frame is so big. I forgot to decorate this so I had to rush to glue everything before I had to pick up my son from school.
This photo booth frame is cute and country and matches the other decorations. I can't wait to use it at my daughter's party.
