Once I got my color scheme of pink and blue together for the twincesses gymnastics birthday party, I knew I needed a big impact back drop to bring in those colors. There are so many different shades of blue and pink and when I found the table clothes for the room I couldn’t find that exact shade in a backdrop. So I decided to use the actual table clothes to make the DIY party backdrop, that way all the colors would be consistent and I would get the big impact I was looking for.
Here is the step by step tutorial:
1) Find a space in your home where you can spread out the table cloths and hang them with push pins.
2) Choose the length your need. Because the backdrop was going behind a table I didn’t need it to be floor length so I hung the tablecloths horizontally.
4) Make sure your two table clothes are hung together evenly and start cutting vertical strips through both tableclothes with your scissors. Mine were about 2 inches wide. I tried to cut as straight as possible but it didn’t always work out, and the great thing about this project is that it is very forgiving with those imperfections.
5) Leave some room on the top. I left about 1.5 inches on the top of my vertical cuts.
6) Just keep cutting until you get to the other end. This backdrop takes no time at all!
7) When you do hang the back drop on party day, you won’t put the table clothes directly behind each other, you will hang the top table cloth slightly (about 1 inch) to the left or right so that both colors show through. I actually take the bottom color and pull each strip out from behind the top color.
And there you have it and easy and simple project that will give big impact for your next soiree. It also works great as a backdrop for photo booths as well. Have fun.
What kind of backdrops do you use at your parties?
