New Year Backdrop that You Can Make in 5 Minutes » Lovely Indeed


This sparkling New Year’s backdrop is my favorite choice for a party photo shoot! You can do this in about 5 minutes and it has a wow factor. Read on for the demo list and DIY tutorial

We’re back with more of our impromptu New Year’s Eve party! I mentioned in our New Year’s Eve hat printable post that we decided to throw a New Year’s Eve party last year at the last minute.

Suddenly we’re done decorating and doing this.

But the great thing is that it all came together super quickly because the projects were so simple but really effective. Like this New Year background!

I thought it would be fun for people to have a shiny background for taking phone photos, so we decided to make a five-minute New Year’s background.

And no kidding, if you have someone else help you install this, it will take five minutes to install.

How to make a shiny wallpaper for the New Year in five minutes

Material

Making time: 5 minutes

  1. Decide how wide your New Year’s wallpaper should be. Cut sections of each fringe wreath to this length. We swapped out the silver and gold rows because I was only using what I had on hand. But you don’t have to use both colors if you prefer one or the other. For reference, our backdrop was about 8 feet long, and we used 13 rows of fringes.
  2. Starting at the bottom, tape the first row of gift to the wall. You can start as low as you want — our first row was a few inches off the ground. Have one person hold the row of gift up while the other person unfolds the ribbon and pins the top of the gift to the wall. Alternatively, if you’re working alone, line up the gift, tie ribbon to the top of the gift, then pick up the row and tape it to the wall. I recommend using a strip of tape at least every 5 inches. You can also use a long strip of tape across the entire top of the row.
  3. Continue to the next class. Hang this above and in front of the first. You should layer this row so that the fringe covers the solid, unbounded portion of the first row. The tape is in place.
  4. Keep going! When you get to the top, instead of putting tape across the top row, twist the pieces of tape over on themselves and stick them behind the top row. This will hide any unsightly tape and give your New Year’s wallpaper an easy finished look.

Now let your guests take photos in front of the New Year backdrop! It was fun to see everyone taking pictures.

And we got some gems. One of my favorite pictures of all time is this one of Henry and his cousin Noah:

Ha ha ha ha! They had the ball. One thing to note: the tassels tear fairly easily, so if you have young children you may not want to let them pull them too hard.

Maggie did a number on our New Year’s backdrop as soon as she realized she was going to break up. Fortunately, fringe is very forgiving and you can hide any rips or tears under another layer.
