Social Media Props Add Interest to Photos

To celebrate Social Media Day today, here’s a fun tip for DIYers.

Make social media props to add fun and visual interest to photos you take and post at events. It could be a flag, or it could be a sign, with a logo or a custom hashtag unique to the event, your business or you! Hold it when you pose with other people. Take photos with your camera and theirs to reach their network too.

Really the prop/message can be anything that is fun adds value or makes people laugh. In other words, helps you and your photo stand out on social media.

Here we made social media flags using craft foam from Michaels and dowels from Home Depot. The icons were downloaded from, printed on card stock, cut out and then traced onto white craft foam which was glued onto the colour foam. Easy-Peasy!
