Photo Booth Backdrop

This easy photo booth backdrop was a last-minute, fit-it-in-if-there’s-time-to-prepare-it activity that we did for my daughter’s birthday party.

I made this for her friend party.  It ended up being a fun addition and I’m glad we included it.  I think it will be fun to look back at the pictures of her and her friends in a few years.  Did I say it was easy?

Photo Booth for Birthday Party

I had each of the kids stand in front of the rainbow photo booth backdrop made out of plastic tablecloths.  We used an 11×14 open picture frame I had laying around as a prop.

My baby girl didn’t quite “get it” with the frame, but I thought her concept was cute.  Can you tell she’s saying “Cheeeeeeeese”?

My adorable blue-eyed nephew did the “head through the frame” technique and my sweet niece pulled a silly face.

My son is a total goof ball.  I had each of the kids do a smiley face and a silly face.

DIY Photo Booth Backdrop Using Plastic Tablecloths

Since the theme was a rainbow art birthday party, I picked up the six different rainbow colors plastic tablecloths from the dollar store. I folded one side of the tablecloth back and forth into approximately two inch folds.  I used a needle and string and threaded the string through the center of the folds.

Once I had all six colors folded and strung, I hung the backdrop from a couple of nails

After the strings were secured to the nails, I spread the tablecloths out to cover the wall.  Pretty easy, right?

    This is a very cute idea! I like to use them as backdrops for party and table settings. I just finsihed taking pictures of a Football theme party, and I used the team colors for the table covers. I really like how you strung yours through a wire, It is probably better then stapling it into the ceiling! Anyway I was just stopping by from Tatertots an Jellos link party.
