On Saturday, we had another Fourth of July/Going away party to attend. One of my best friends, along with her husband and two beautiful little girls will be moving to Italy for three years due to military obligations. As a special surprise going away gift, another friend coordinated having a professional photographer at the party to take pictures of family and friends. Here's where the Polaroid, skewers and mustaches come in. (I'm sure you were wondering what this post was all about and when I was getting to the point.)
I volunteered to make a giant Polaroid as a photo prop, but wasn't exactly sure what material I was going to use. I originally thought about using thin wood, but when my husband brought home a piece of insulation the perfect size, I decided to use that instead.
(I would NOT recommend this material if you decide to make this project, use foam or wood)
I also wanted to make something fun for the photos, so I cut out a few mustaches, traced them onto black card stock and glued them to skewers.
Paige really enjoyed trying them out!
The photographer also brought a few fun props to go along with the mustache sticks.
We had such a fun time and I can't wait to see the professional pictures.
