Sharing a simple DIY Paper Flower Backdrop that you can easily make for parties, events and photo booths.
While this backdrop tutorial project is definitely time-consuming, it definitely gives you a good bang for your buck!
We think most of us can agree that we have a special place in our hearts for pretty backdrops.
And working at Smilebooth, we have no shortage of these in my life.
We created this DIY Paper Flower Backdrop for a bride here in Houston a few weeks ago.
And we thought we’d share with you how we made it.
The cool thing is that you can easily customize it to fit any color scheme.
It’s all built onto a canvas backing so you can easily pin it up for a simple backdrop for a party too!
Materials and Tools Needed to Make a DIY Simple Paper Flower Backdrop
Large construction paper in color of your choice — We opted for white since this particular backdrop was for a wedding.
Tissue paper in the color of your choice — Optional for additional texture. Tissue paper is more delicate so we do recommend that your backdrop consists mainly of construction paper flowers.
Backdrop in the size of your choice — Ours is 8′ x 8′. We opted for a canvas sheet since it’s a heavier fabric. However, you can use any piece of fabric or even a bedroom sheet.
How to Make a DIY Simple Paper Flower Backdrop
All you have to do is fold various styles of paper flowers using the paper color of your choice.
Then, hot glue the finished flowers onto your fabric.
It’s easiest to hang the fabric first and then glue it to the flowers afterwards.
This way, you can see the placement of the flowers for the finished product as you go.
We used a few different styles of paper flowers to complete this look and added in some tissue paper flowers to give it a more textured look.
These are a different styles that you can fold paper flowers.
You can also fill in the empty spaces with these folded paper crepes that we originally made as cake toppers.
