DIY Post: Festive Backdrop

It’s the holiday season- There are a million celebrations happening- maybe you’re even hosting an event of your own? Here’s a simple, cheap and festive way to decorate and give a little extra whimsy to any event. This backdrop texture also works WONDERS for photos. We chose bright colors for this DIY for the ease of visual instruction, but we’ve previously used all white tissue paper and this same technique for occasions and the positive feedback hasn’t stopped yet!

Step 1: Fold 3 sheets of tissue paper in 1/2, long ways (crease at the top).

Step 2: Fold the tissue paper in 1/2  and then in 1/2 once again, and cut the left and right bottom corners off of your tissue paper to form a point at the bottom.

Step 3: Fringe the bottom of your tissue paper, about 1/2 way up.

Step 4: Unfold back to the form you made in Step 1

Step 5: Seperate the top layer from the back layer and stagger to make the appearance of 2 layers. Then crease to this form.

Step 6: Tape these sections to your wall or location of choice working your way from bottom to top. Make sure to tape on the top crease and from the crease inside as well. The interior tape holds the multiple sheets of tissue paper in place.

 

That’s it. Really. It’s that simple. Try it out, let us know how it works for you and if you’re super inspired, send us a photo!

Happy Handmade Holidays!
