Christmas blogging props & where to find them!

Friday, 17 November 2017


I don't know about you, but Christmas is one of my favourite times of year. It's also one of the times I get to get most creative with my blog along with Halloween. One of my favourites parts is buying props to use in my photos. I've seen a few people ask on Twitter over the last few days where to purchase them so decided to share my knowledge with you. I do not spend a lot of money on my props as I know they will only be used for a month or so each year. However, it's surprising how much you can get for a little amount. 

Hobbycraft-
A bit of an obvious one here, however, Hobbycraft do have some great props for Christmas, including the cute little tree featured in most of my upcoming Christmas posts. I went in the store to get my items, however, you can get some great stuff online. The best stuff is under the home decor section. I also purchased some fake snow. However since I purchased those items I've found many more I want to purchase, including these mini bells and adorable washi tapes

The Range-
The range is my go-to for craft stuff since one opened in my town and despite their annoying advert, I still love em. I purchased a lot of my Christmas props from the The Range and I still love them so much now, including some little wreaths and gingerbread men. A few of my favourite picks this year are these lovely berry picks, wooden tree shapes and this berries and pinecone topper. I would say it's worth going into a store with The Range as there is a large variety of choice.



eBay-
eBay is one of the places to buy the cheapest props and also basically anything you can think of. Once I got the ball rolling it was so much easier. Some of my top picks this year are plastic candy canes, mini presents featured above, tiny fairy lights and these snowflakes. I'd say just reach random Christmas words which pop into your head and you'll find something you love. 

Poundland-
Poundland can be a little bit hit and miss in their Christmas decorations section, however this year they're rocking it. I usually purchase my Christmas lights from there to decorate my house, I mean come on a pound for a set of lights is a bargain. They have a HUGE variety of them, including the bell ones featured, a variety of colours and tons of other cool stuff. Would also recommend buying your tinsel from them!

Asda-
Asda is one of the best places to get tree decorations from, especially stand out ones which are cheap. I'd recommend checking out their gingerbread house decoration as well as this adorable robin ornament and if you're really pushing the boat out this glitter stag is beautiful and great for room decoration too. Asda have a huge variety of items that can used as props and perfect for getting your Christmas style just right.



Where do you buy props from?

  1. I haven't ever bought Christmas props, I normally just use our own decorations and things like that - but it's a great idea if you plan content further in advance of when you actually have the house decorated and presents bought and wrapped already!

  14. Props is something that I really want to start buying so I can include proper images of my products instead of crappy Snapchat quality images that are so eurgh!
