Grab your favorite color spray paint and spray away! Remember not to hold the can too close or your paint won鈥檛 be even. Add multiple coats until the color is solid.

For the Budget Bride

Wedding_Photobooth_Backdrops_001

Materials:

鈥 5 yards of tulle in 4 colors

鈥 paper

鈥 cardboard

鈥 twine

鈥 scissors

Wedding_Photobooth_Backdrops_002

Cut your tulle into strips that are about 12 inches wide and five feet long. You will end up with around four strips of each color.

Tie the strips together to make one long piece of tulle. Wrap your long piece of tulle around the length of the cardboard. Wrap and tie the tulle in the center, then cut the edges to revel your pom-pom.

Create smaller pom-poms by wrapping the tulle around the shorter section of the cardboard. We used two strands of tulle to make the smaller ones.

Wedding_Photobooth_Backdrops_011

There are two great things about tulle. One, it鈥檚 very cheap! One yard of tulle costs about 99 cents. And two, it is light and easily packed. You can squish all your pom-poms together in a box and when you open up the lid they will pop back to life like nothing ever happened.

Use a cutting board or scissors to create triangle bunting to adorn your tulle pom-poms for a photo booth backdrop.

Wedding_Photobooth_Backdrops_047

We used fishing line and tape to help tack these pieces to a wall of ivory. Since the tulle and paper bunting are so light, they had no problem staying in place.
