Holiday Photo Props

As the holidays approach it's worthwhile to take some seasonal photos of your products. Whether it's holiday items like ornaments or cards or just your usual items a few props can make your product listings or advertising a little more fitting for the season. Here are a few ideas for simple props you can get at your local dollar store this time of year.
  • Mini artificial tree, those between 6-12 inches would work well for draping jewelry on.
  • Artificial wreath. The image for this post is of one of my platypus ornaments displayed with a 6 inch wreath laying on it's side.
  • Silk poinsettas as a backdrop.
  • Plain glass ball ornaments. I'd stay away from too many colors and highly decorated ones, solid colors will distract less from your own items.
  • Wide metallic ribbon.
  • Gift boxes.
And a few natural items that you might be able to find for free out on a walk:
  • Pine cones
  • Branches
  • Evergreen boughs (be careful of pitch getting on your items or your backdrop if it needs to be reused)
Do you have any ideas? Go ahead and share them in the comments.
