The Most Adorable DIY & Handmade Easter Photo Props for Babies

What a month! With St. Patrick’s Day and Easter teeming so closely together – it can be a bit of a whirlwind of family celebrations and photo-opps.

As a hobby DIY’er, shutterbug and new(ish) mom, a whole new world of inspiration has opened up to me. Now I have holidays and themes to sink my teeth into – with the main object being memory making. (And adorning my walls with adorable photos of my children.) Which, one doesn’t necessarily need a photo prop to do – babies are mesmerizing and cute all on their own.

But please. Tell me what’s cuter than a fresh baby in a bunny or chickadee outfit? I rest my case.
