Halloween is in the fall season, so why use the fall theme for your Halloween photo booth this year? Just grab a few balls of hay and dried leaves, and craft a backdrop that screams autumn and fall. Logs and dried trees can definitely add a spooky effect to your photo booth.
8. Blood splatter

For ghosts, you can go ahead and cut out the ghosts and decorate them accordingly and just stick them on your photo booth backdrop.
