DIY: Oversized Valentine’s Photo Booth Props

foggydress_Vday Is this kiss big enough for you?? HA. I am in charge of a Valentine’s Party at my church, and I really wanted a photo booth. And you can’t have a photo booth without props! So I made ginormous ones because I think they’re kind of funny and over-the-top, and that’s jus the sort of thing a party needs. These pictures were taken in St. George, UT in the neighborhood where my in-laws live. Those rocks were so pretty, I had to use them as backdrops!

foggydress_Vday Of course AKG thought this ^^ was for tick tack toe…no silly! Hugs and kisses. ^^

foggydress_VdaySupplies:

  • Scissors
  • Pencil & eraser
  • Colored poster board paper (I got mine at Walmart for $0.33-$0.95 each). Get the stiffest you can get without it actually being poster board.
  • If you want, you can add glitter or spray paint them …whatever your hear desires 🙂

DIY: Fake a Headband

foggydress_headband Does anyone else get head aches when they wear headbands? I hardly ever wear them because they’re not worth the pain I get! If you have the same problem, just fake it like I do. I usually like to wear these when my hair is up in a bun, but they work great with your hair down–totally pain free! Thanks Mackenzie, for being my pretty model! Keep reading for the tutorial.

I’m giving away a this beauty, who started out as a vintage blouse:foggydress_hobag_siennafoggydress_hobag_sienna  And turned into an awesome HoBag:foggydress_hobag_siennafoggydress_hobag_siennafoggydress_hobag_siennafoggydress_hobag_sienna I sewed on a thrift store belt ^^ and I’m loving the look.

I’m a bit of a perfectionist, and like to make sure it’s sturdy and will last. This bag took about 5-6 hours to make, from figuring out the design, to cutting it, to messing up and starting over, to figuring out how it all sews together, to…

Packing up the Season

foggydress_lights The Christmas tree is down, and lights are put away. When I was helping someone put up their lights in early December, I pulled them out of a big box full of lights and they were all wrapped in balls! It was so easy to get them out! Not tangles, no endless strands… So if any of you out there are like me and just taking your decorations down, try wrapping your lights in balls like this, if you haven’t tried it already. You’ll be thanking me come next December.

That’s all for now… have a great one!

hugs, hanalei.
