Take All the Pics With This Gilded New Year’s Eve Photo Booth Backdrop
NYE is here, and we’re celebrating the end of 2016 with a gilded photo booth made out of an unusual supply — 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 — 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’ll be ready for you to hang year after year.
Materials + Tools:
Even though this is a gilded photo booth backdrop, you’ll 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.
- Spray the bottom half of the mop heads with yellow spray paint.
- While it’s still wet, sprinkle with glitter. Seal off with glitter sealer.
- Once dry, use Command strips to hang mops in a brick-laying pattern on your wall.
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’t reveal the top of the mop and the Command hooks.
Grab your gang, start taking pictures and toast to a good year.
#selfies are always a must.
Happy New Year, everyone! Let’s get ready to make 2017 as great as it can be!
