Festive Blog Prop Ideas/Haul



As I was preparing my flat lay for last week's blog post, I came to a sudden realisation. I have barely any festive themed blog props! In fact, I only had one Christmassy item in that photo and that was my pig decoration from last year's Tree Decoration Haul. This gave me an incentive to go to my nearest craft shop and buy a whole bunch of Christmas decor/supplies. I had a lot of fun picking these items out. There's definitely a pink and gold winter wonderland theme going on which I think you'll notice as you scroll through these photos! 

Golden Tree Branch
As soon as I entered the store, I headed straight to the artificial flower section. Artificial flowers are probably my favourite flat lay prop. They're great for placing in empty corners. This gold and glittery branch instantly caught my eye and I knew I couldn't not get it. 


Snowflake Tree Decorations
In terms of tree decorations, I felt very spoilt for choice. There were so many different shapes and designs to look through. In the end I went for these wooden snowflakes. It's not too obvious in the photo but they have a light dusting of gold paint over the them which I thought was really pretty. 


Star Confetti
I've seen a lot of people use confetti in their blog photos so I was really keen to try it out myself. I opted for these small silver stars. Sprinkling it around my set up was really fun and it gives my photos some extra sparkle which I love. 


Patterned/Glittery Paper
The last things I got were these two pieces of paper which serve as great photo backdrops. They both sort of remind me of snow. There's the white glittery one and the light pink one with the frost-like shapes. I'm super happy with them! 


Thanks for reading! What did you think of this haul? What did you like the most out of these items?

  3. I love your selection! The colours are just beautiful together and the whole festive vibe is gorgeous. I think my favourites are the stars or the tree branch, although that pink backdrop is just gorgeous too. It's so funny how a few small items can really change the whole feel of your photos - stunning! :)

  8. I absolutely love using confetti as props for my blog photos, although they are a bit of a nightmare to clean up afterwards! I love the idea of using a golden branch... Maybe I should get myself one, too!
