DIY Curly Layer | Newborn Posing Prop

Updated: Oct 6, 2022

If you are here reading this blog post, the chances that you saw the picture I posted in the SunnyMelon #NewbornPhotography facebook group are very high. Hi there👋🏻! I am happy that you are here! Regardless of how you came across this blog post, I am happy that you are here!

If you are anything like me, you are always looking for the inexpensive alternative to most newborn photography props. Now, It's not that I do not appreciate prop vendors, It's just that I love to get creative. I thrive on the challenge of a good DIY project and these curly layers check mark all of the boxes. It also turns out that they are a lot simpler than I imagined they would be. The only down side to this DIY is that the process is very time consuming..but, borderline therapeutic so i can't complain. Plus it saves me money in the long run so I don't mind spending my evening unwinding, pulling apart the yarn, felting while watching Netflix.

Before you watch the video below, check out the list i created to shop all the products that you will need to make your own curly layer. I purchased everything i needed from JoAnn Fabrics, but i am sure you would be able to find the same products on Amazon and even at stores such as Walmart too.
