With endless creative possibilities for DIY ceremony and reception photo booth backdrops, there's no reason not to make one yourself. Ceremony photos will be that much more special with a piece of art in the background and guests will have a blast posing in front of a wall of your handcrafted work. Here, 5 clever and colorful ways to make a backdrop that will wow!
I take a ton of pictures! Not only for the blog, but also of my kiddos and things around my home. It can be very tiring trying to find new places and backgrounds for photos, and sometimes I need a quick change without going far. I had seen so many tutorials for DIY backdrops out there in the vast unknown that is the internet, but had been too lazy to attempt one. I officially threw my hands up in the air and called it quits after my last makeshift backdrop fell down on my daughter’s head. I made a quick trip to the store and had this portable, easily storable photo backdrop made ten minutes after I got home.
3. Screw the 1″ x 2″ scrap lumber to the back of the plywood underlay for bracing. You can use a regular thick plywood board for the entire backdrop but that makes the backdrop very heavy.
Awesome article! Now if only I could go back in time to a week ago, when we had the idea to make the backdrop frame out of steel pipes and joins. :/ In terms of cost it was only a little more expensive than the seamless background frame, and we lucked out as there are green colored pipes to match our wedding color. I was worried about the top bar sagging, but looking at the (gorgeous!) photos, it seems like I was worried for nothing. I could probably do pull-ups on the thing we built. If I could do pull-ups, which I can’t. Can’t wait to see the rest of the backdrops!
