How to Make a Festive Fringe Photo Backdrop

What’s a party without a good photo backdrop? Whether this goes behind your dessert table or behind a photo booth, this fringed backdrop is just what you need to take your party to 11. Best of all, all you really need is tissue paper, poster board, and tape to make it happen.

Oh, and you’d probably benefit from having a Griz Coat on hand, as well as neon sunglasses and beanies :)

Materials:

– tissue paper (all sorts of colors available in our shop!)

– 4 piece of poster board

Tools:

– scissors

– packing tape

– push pins to hang it up!

Instructions:

1. Determine how large your backdrop needs to be. You can use more than 4 poster boards if you need to cover more space.

2. Tape the boards together with packing tape.

3. Make sure all your tissue paper is the same size, then fold in half lengthwise.

4. To make fringe, cut a straight line up the tissue paper starting on the end that isn’t folded. Leave two inches uncut at the top.

5. Cut in one-inch sections along the length of your tissue paper. Repeat with however many colors you want.

6. Tape fringe to the poster board starting at the bottom. Hang the next pieces of fringe over the first layer about a quarter inch to hide the poster board.

7. Keep adding layers until the poster board is covered.

8. Pin or nail your finished board to the wall, and get ready for to party!
