Blogging Tips: 40 Blog Photograph Prop Ideas

blog prop ideas

Blog props can make such a difference to your photos! When I first started blogging, I didn’t really know what to use to make the background of my images interesting, so I mostly stuck to plain photos. About 4 months ago, I started using as many different props as I could find and really played around with the placement of them. As a result, I am so much happier with my photos – they seem to have more life to them! So today I am sharing some ideas of ways to fill the backgrounds of your images.

  1. Makeup Brushes
  2. Nail Polishes
  3. Fake Flowers
  4. Pretty lipglosses
  5. Paperclips – Sainsburys have some cute rose gold ones!
  6. Necklaces
  7. Your phone
  8. Sequins
  9. Ribbon
  10. Candles
  11. Succulents
  12. Cacti
  13. A watch
  14. Bracelets
  15. Fluffy blankets
  16. Silk scarf
  17. MAC lipsticks
  18. Little mirror
  19. Real flowers
  20. Magazines
  21. Perfume
  22. Marble tile (you can buy a single one like I do!)
  23. Fairy lights
  24. A pretty lamp
  25. Notebooks or journals
  26. A dish or tray – Tiger have some lovely ones!
  27. Books/novels
  28. Other makeup!
  29. Mug/cup
  30. Makeup brushes – I love the rose gold ones!
  31. Ornaments
  32. Different Fabrics – add lots of texture!
