NYE is here, and we鈥檙e celebrating the end of 2016 with a gilded photo booth made out of an unusual supply 鈥 mop heads! We fell in love with this shaggy wall covering earlier in the holiday season and used it to decorate a wall in the B+C holiday house. This DIY is super easy 鈥 it requires mindless effort and has a painless setup, but it comes at a cost. If you throw NYE parties every year, I would say this photo booth backdrop is the perfect investment. You can store the mops and they鈥檒l be ready for you to hang year after year.

Instructions:

  1. Spray the bottom half of the mop heads with yellow spray paint.
  2. While it鈥檚 still wet, sprinkle with glitter. Seal off with glitter sealer.
  3. Once dry, use Command strips to hang mops in a brick-laying pattern on your wall.

Even though this is a gilded photo booth backdrop, you鈥檒l want to use a yellow spray paint. The gold spray paint on the mop heads will just make it look brown and mucky. No good.

While the spray paint is still wet, sprinkle gold glitter all over the bottom half of the mop head.

Spray the mops with a sealer to help hold the glitter in place.

Command hooks are holiday miracles. Stick these hooks on the wall, and for best results, wait a bit before hanging weight on them.

Use pieces of the mop to create a hook for it to hang on. Tie in a double knot.

Hang your mops in a brick-laying pattern. Overlay the bottom edge so you don鈥檛 reveal the top of the mop and the Command hooks.
