Birthday Number Photo Prop

Ready for  photo prop that cost me,well, nothing? To save time and money, I typically take my own photos of my children. But photo props can be expensive. For the triplet’s first birthday, I made a few fast photo props for their photo session. You may be surprised at how inexpensive {and ridiculously easy} this large Birthday Number Photo Prop is!

Supplies:

  • Foam board
  • At least 10 sheets of tissue paper
  • Hot glue and hot glue gun
  • Pen
  • Exacto knife/scissors

 

Start with an inexpensive piece of white foam board. I actually used a “scrap” piece of foam board– one that I have had for years that was beat up and gross looking. Since I was covering it up, it doesn’t matter what it looked like. Using a pen, draw an outline on the foam board of the desired number. I, of course, needed a number 1. I’m a terrible artist so it took me a few times to get the number outline that I wanted.

Use the exacto knife or scissors to cut out the number.

Lay the number aside and grab the tissue paper. Cut circles from the tissue paper (lots and lots of circles!) about three inches in diameter.

Take a tissue paper circle and pinch it in the center to create a flower type shape.

Starting at the bottom of the number, hot glue the circle flower shape to the edge of the number. Continue this method across the bottom of the number.
