5 DIY Spring Photo Backdrops

By Shayla Lee

Now that warmer weather is around the corner, many of us are taking the time to get organized and do some spring cleaning. With spring cleaning comes the discovery (or re-discovery) of things you forgot existed - craft supplies being a common find. Instead of throwing these materials out, why not use them to create something fun? With a few craft supplies and a little creativity, you can create a photo backdrop for an upcoming event in no time. Here are a few of our favorite spring-themed backdrops.

Flower Power

These whimsical flowers can be created with a hot glue gun, tissue paper, plastic cups, and a few other supplies. Not only do they make for a fun prop to hold in photos, you could make a few of these flowers for the ultimate floral backdrop.

Showstopping Streamers 

Streamers are another item that are forgotten about as soon as a party ends until a few rolls are found months after when you are cleaning. Streamers make for an easy backdrop and can be hung straight or twirled if you're looking to have a textured backdrop Alternating colors can also be done for something different.

Beautiful Balloons

Often discovered when junk drawers are cleaned out, balloons are an easy backdrop idea that you can use to match your event colors. Balloons can be taped to walls, filled with helium, blown up to different sizes... the options are endless! For a Valentines Day party, red and pink balloons can be shaped into a heart or for an St. Patricks Day event 4 green balloons can be attached together to create a four leaf clover.  

Cool Confetti

Did you find a few rolls of wrapping paper or scrapbooking paper in your cleaning frenzy? Instead of throwing them in the recycling bin, cut them up for a backdrop! You can cut the paper into whatever shape you want and holes and string can be added for hanging confetti.
