7 Cool Props To Make Your Instagram Flat Lays Look Even More Amazing!

A picture is worth a thousand words and that's why an Insta feed upgrade should be on your mind! And the one thing that most bloggers and influencers are experimenting with these days, are flat lays. Flat lays make an Insta feed look pretty, chic and creative, all at once. You can choose a colour palette or opt to tell a story through your images. Of course, you need to have decent photography skills and a creative mind. You also need to have a few statement props that go with the theme, help you tell a story or just make your pictures look more attractive. So here are 7 products that'll make amazing props for your first (or next!) flat lay. 

Colourful Cushions And Pillows

Home decor items that are unique to you and your lifestyle can be a part of your flat lay. Think colourful cushions placed on fancy faux fur rug or carpet.

A Bright Lipstick

A bright colour always stands out in pictures. Play around with your beauty products--nail paint bottles, lipsticks, colourful brushes. So take out that fuschia pink or blood red lipstick and use it in your flat lays. It'll make all the difference! 

POPxo Recommends: NARS Jungle Red lipstick (Rs 4998) available on Amazon.

A Coffee Mug

Every one of us owns at least one adorable looking coffee mug. And it's the one prop that can do wonders to your flat lay. From placing it in a travel-related image to one that talks about food or home decor, there's so much you can use it for. 

POPxo Recommends: Flamingo coffee mug (Rs 499) from POPxo Shop.


Stationery For The Win!

Everyday office supplies like pens and notebooks can make your flat lay stand out. A notebook with your zodiac sign or a cool quote will work perfectly fine. For the overall look, add paperclips, a pen stand and your phone to the mix. Of course, you can also add glitter to glam up the picture. 

POPxo Recommends: Cast Your Spell Notebook (RS 349) from POPxo Shop.

A Colourful Candle

Few things can brighten up a frame like a good-looking candle. Place them beside your books or food trays and they will instantly light up the picture. Brownie point for the amazing smell!

POPxo Recommends: Lemon Scented Round Pillar Candle (Rs 499) from POPxo Shop.

A Bunch Of Fake Flowers

Flowers and potted plants add colour and an earthy feel to a picture. If you don’t want to spend money on real flowers every time you plan a flat lay shoot, invest in plastic ones. Alternatively, you may pick leaves, twigs, pinecones and wildflowers from your neighbourhood. They are both free and look great!

POPxo Recommends: Fuscia Purple Orchid Stems (Rs 599) from Pepperfry.

A Pair Of Sunglasses

If you have a pair of sunglasses that you think will make a great addition to a picture, do try it out. Sunnies go well with almost all themes- alongside books, clothes, and even food. Use them to fill the empty space in your flat lays!

POPxo Recommends: Fossil unisex sunglasses (Rs 4960) from Lenskart.
