Canada 150 Photo Booth

What's a party without fun photos to document the occasion? With Canada Day around the corner, and #Canada150 celebrations in full swing, I thought it would be fun to put together an easy and inexpensive photo prop for my boys. I used dollar store supplies and a little imagination, and it turned out wonderfully. Today, I am sharing a tutorial for my Canada 150 photo booth, and a few more fabulous ideas (from a great group of East Coast Bloggers) that you are going to love!

To make the booth, you'll need: a piece of dollar store foam core, a red Sharpie, red duct tape, and an x-acto knife. 

1) Draw a maple leaf on the foam core.
2) Make two red stripes with duct tape.
3) Cut the maple leaf out with an x-acto knife.

That's it! It's such a simple idea, but it is so much fun, and a perfect way to document the birthday of our nation.

Happy Canada Day!

Need more simple and fun ways to celebrate? Check out these #Canada150 ideas from a wonderful group of East Coast Bloggers:


  1. I love this idea! Smart to use red duct tape, too -- I never think of duct tape!

    1. I always craft with duct tape. You can get it at the dollar store, it comes in great colours and designs, and it makes these sturdy.

  2. I squeal a little bit inside every time I see a clever selfie frame! Great idea. This looks like it was quick and easy to do too - perfect. Happy Canada Days, Gina. :)

  3. What a great idea! And you can look back on these photos and remember what you were doing way back on Canada Day.

  4. Genius! I am totally going to use this idea :)

  5. This is fantastic! I think it'd be an awesome teacher/school idea, too. So maybe for the year end BBQs/picnics/fairs, they could have a booth OR some teachers are kind enough to have a beginning of the school year photo and end of the year photo sent home. How cool would it be to have a memory of Canada's sesquicentennial come home with your kiddos on Grading Day? So fun!

    Great post! I love your Dollar Store ideas! Frugal and fun!


  6. This blog is really helpful for my database. It enhanced the area of my thoughts and pushed me beyond the boundaries. Work ethic of every point is different and represent a new way to improve myself.
