St. Patrick's Day Photo Booth Props

Back at Halloween, I had an idea to turn some stick-on mustaches into photo booth props.  Unfortunately, by the time I had the idea and got back to the store to buy them, they were all sold out!  Boo.  But then the other day I was walking through Walgreens and spotted some green mustaches for St. Patrick’s Day.  And so began my St. Patrick’s Day photo booth project!

Project estimate:

  • Stick-on mustaches, $1 and up
  • Craft foam, on hand or $1
  • Paper, on hand
  • Gold coins, $1
  • Chopsticks, $1
  • Hot glue, on hand
  • Embellishments, on hand or $1 and up

Total:  $3 and up

The mustaches are stick-on and were a little flimsy for making a mustache-on-a-stick, so I stuck them to green craft foam first and cut them out to make them a little stiffer.

Hot glue a chopstick to the back of each mustache.

I needed more accessories to go with my mustaches, so I whipped up a leprechaun hat and a lot of gold.  To make the hat, I sketched a design on paper and then used my drawing as a template to cut out the hat – if you don’t feel confident in your artistic abilities, you can also print out clipart of a hat and use it as a template.

To dress up the hat a little more, I dug a green feather and some shamrock table scatter out of my stash.  Add a few dabs of hot glue to hold it all together and add a chopstick to the back side.

I also made a pot of gold.  Again, I sketched the design on scrap paper and used it as a template to cut the pot out of heavy black cardstock; then I glued a few gold coins (left over from Mardi Gras crafting!) to the back side to “fill” the pot.  And, of course, a chopstick!

When the props were complete, I stuck them in a mason jar for display.

I made a simple backdrop by stapling a piece of green posterboard to a bulletin board and added some white crepe paper.  Easy peasy!  (And so far, it’s a huge hit!)
