Graduation Party at San Marcos Rec Hall
Last Saturday, we had a great time providing a DJ and photo booth for a graduation party, at the San Marcos Rec Hall! The guests had a great time dancing and taking pictures at the photo booth. We loved the custom picture frame prop that they made, in the picture above!
Congrats, again, to Marissa, who will also be starting at Texas A&M in Corpus Christi, this fall! Also, if you're looking for a nice, decent size venue with a really affordable price, check out the San Marcos Rec Hall!
This party was last year, but we decided to add our DIY photo booth frame instructions, due to the enormous amount of interest we've received about their custom photo booth frame! If you want to make your own photo booth frame/props, like the one they made, below, read below! :)
How To Make Your Own Photo Booth Frame/Prop
Foam Board - Be sure to buy a large foam board, from your favorite local craft stores, Walmart, Amazon, or wherever you'd like to buy it from. Hint: If you choose a colored one, such as the black that they chose, above, it saves you time! Choose the size that best suits your needs. A 20" X 30" foam board should work well.
Ruler - Next, you'll need a ruler, to draw on the foam board. You'll want to draw a rectangle, inside the foam board, which will be your photo frame. Make sure it's large enough to allow you to write inside the frame. It should be at least 3-4 inches.
Exacto Blade - Next, you'll need to carefully cut out the rectangle, using an Exacto razor. Take your time, since you want it to be as straight as possible!
Foam Letters- Next, choose the color of letters you want to use to go onto your frame. If your event has certain theme colors, be sure to use similar colors. If it's a graduation party, you can use the school's colors. You can find self-adhesive letters, online, or in a local craft store, that make it a little easier and save you time.
Glue, glitter, scissors, construction paper, markers - Next, you can add anything else onto the frame, such as graduation hat outlines (as pictured above), hearts, or whatever you'd like. Simply use your markers to draw your shapes onto the paper and cut them out. Once you have them cut out, glue them onto the foam board, For the glue, you can use a hot glue gun, or simply use Elmer's glue. Be careful with the hot glue gun, as it may melt the foam. Let the glue set and that's it! Your custom photo booth frame is ready! :)
If all the above is a bit too much for you, and you just don't have the time, be sure to check out our other blog below, which is much easier and you can easily order your own custom photo booth frame prop!

With our DJ, photo booth, and lighting services, you can easily create your custom package. While we do have popular packages that help you know where to start, all of our packages are able to be customized. You can add things, remove things, add time, etc. We know no two events are the same, and therefore, we don't make our clients choose from the same pacakges. :)
You can select the uplighting color to match your theme or decor, choose a custom, personalized monogram with your name, initials or logo, you can add Karaoke at your wedding, add a set up for live ceremony musicians, add lawn games or giant games, etc. We have numerous options to create a unique wedding/event package that no one else has!
Even with our music choices, couples tell us what they want to hear, beforehand. You won't find our DJs playing the same songs you hear at every wedding. We play what you want and more importantly, we don't play what you don't want to hear! We're all about creating custom packages because every wedding that we do is as unique as each couple we meet. You don't like going to boring weddings, that are the same as the last two weddings you went to, right? Your wedding should be fun and far different from the others!
Create Your Own Photo Booth Experience
Another unique way to personalize your wedding is with our photo booth rentals. You can choose to create personalized photo booth props, and just supply us with them, the day of your wedding or event. You can choose from our variety of photo booth backdrop colors. We'll let you know the available colors and you can choose which one best fits your needs. Additionally, you can add a custom photo album with your name, date or other text, on the photo album. We can then help your guests add their pictures into the album, and each guest can write a personal message to you, too! Lastly, you can even add your custom text or logo onto each printout for your guests to take home.
Make Your Own Photo Booth Frame
When it comes to personalizing a photo booth frame, you have plenty of options. You can find a large frame at your local store, such as hobby lobby, or you can even buy them on Amazon.
