14 First Day of School Photo Ideas

Happy Friday! Time for the last Must Have Craft Tip post of the month to round up our back-to-school ideas and tips. The first day of school is always an exciting day so why not document the occasion in a fun way? Today I’m sharing 14 First Day of School Photo Ideas!


 I know I love documenting the first day of school… and the last! It’s so fun to see how much your kids have grown and changed over the school year… or years for that matter! Let’s check out some of my favorites that I think you’re going to love too.

 First and Last Day of School Photo Prop from Fynes Designs


Don’t have time to make one of these props or have chalk sitting around to write on the driveway? I’ve gathered some cute printable signs that will work just as well and are just as fun!
 All of these ideas are so cute and are fun to do to keep those memories of the first day of school forever! Which one is your favorite? Do you have a first day of school photo idea that you do with your children?
Stay tuned next month for a whole new topic of Must Have Craft Tips and More posts! 


Have a great weekend!

DIY New Year’s Eve Photo Booth

Hi there, friends!
I have a FUN and CHEAP idea for you to help you ring in the New Year! Usually we spend our NYE at home eating and playing games. I wanted to add something new to our celebrations this year but I didn’t have much money to spend on the festivities. Here’s what I came up with…
Super fun, right?
White plastic table cloth
Colorful card stock
Colorful tissue paper
Wooden skewers
Push pins
 Craft Paint
Circle sponge brush
Hot glue gun & sticks
*Almost all items I had on hand already. I just went through my craft stash.*
I used my Silhouette (favorite crafting tool EVER…what would I do without her?) to cut out all of the photo props, hats and banner. 
I hot glued the skewers to the photo props and the pennants to twine to make the banner.
I added rhinestones and paint polka dots (craft paint + circle sponge brush) for a little something extra.
For the hats, I added yarn to tie them to our heads (since I had it on hand) and made tissue paper pom-poms to add to the tops of the hats. 
For our “photo booth,” I hung a white plastic table cloth from the wall using push pins.
And then we went to crazytown with the paper props and hats…
We used my iPhone to take all of the photos and then I used a fun app for the edits (FotoLR3)…
I LOVE the way they all turned out! Too fun.
There you go friends! 
A FUN and simple way to ring in the New Year at home with the family and friends.
Thanks for stopping by and have a SAFE and HAPPY New Year’s Eve!
I will see you back here Monday for MFTM’s TOP posts of 2012!
