DIY Gold Leaf Photo Backdrop

Nothing says New Year’s Eve like gold, confetti, and being a little over the top. Luckily I’m excellent at conquering all of those things, especially the latter, just ask Jared haha! This DIY gold leaf photo backdrop also just so happens to pretty good at them, too.

I’m sharing the how-to for this simple backdrop as part of our New Year’s celebration with Uber, aka everyone’s MOST used Uber holiday. Or at least it is for us! While our NYE celebrations this year will be very mellow since we’re expecting baby any day now, it’s the convenience factor of not having to find parking and being able to uberPOOL with friends that wins me over. I’m in it for being able to split the fare, ha! Baby budget, ya’ll.

Let’s be real, for those of you going a little more wild than the Grandma and Grandpa plans that Jared and I usually stick with, Uber is just the safe way to go. So let’s throw a little confetti and do NYE responsibly, yeah?!…

faux palm leaves

metallic gold spray paint

gold thumbtacks

gold florals (I used these and these)

foam board (if you can’t tack the leaves directly to the wall)

You can obviously make the gold floral backdrop with or without an accent color wall, but I loved the pop of pink. If you’re looking for a temporary way to add color to it, you can dye a regular white bedsheet and tack that to the wall first.

Luckily we have the studio walls that are forgiving enough to let us tack allll of the things in place, but if you’re not able to put holes in a wall (most aren’t!) then you can use pieces of foam board to spray paint gold and tack the leaves to first as well. Then you only have to attach or hang the foam board in front of your wall.

I used a lot of greenery that was already gold because it gave the best overall look, but you can also use metallic gold spray paint FOR PLASTIC to spray paint other leaves gold as well. Be sure to get the plastic bonding kind or it will stay tacky and gooey with paint. Trust me, I’ve learned that one the hard way.

Once you have all of your chosen greenery, arrange them and tack in place, then you’re all set!   DIY Gold Leaf Photo Backdrop by top Houston Lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar and Cloth DIY Gold Leaf Photo Backdrop by top Houston Lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar and Cloth DIY Gold Leaf Photo Backdrop by top Houston Lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar and Cloth DIY Gold Leaf Photo Backdrop by top Houston Lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar and ClothDIY Gold Leaf Photo Backdrop by top Houston Lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar and Cloth

    What i don’t realize is actually how you are not actually a lot more well-liked than you might be right now. You are so intelligent. You understand therefore significantly in relation to this subject, made me individually imagine it from so many various angles. Its like men and women are not fascinated unless it is one thing to accomplish with Lady gaga! Your personal stuffs outstanding. Always maintain it up!
