27 Blog Photo Prop Ideas

I want to start making more of an effort with my blog photos, and hopefully if you follow, you’ve seen an improvement in the last couple of months.

I want to set my photos up a bit better for the blog rather than just post a swiftly taken phone pic before writing a post. I was writing a list of photo prop ideas and thought it might be useful to others. I’ve seen a few of these posts, but wanted to write one with items people might already have, rather than a list of things to buy.



  1. Flowers – fake or real
  2. Candles/candle holders
  3. Fairy lights
  4. Postcards/cards/prints
  5. Washi tape
  6. Books/notebooks

  9. Glasses/sunglasses
  10. Scarves
  11. Clothes – with interesting textures
