As you know, and if you follow me on Instagram you definitely know that I absolutely love taking photos of my children regularly! We love taking posed photos and candid photos, I love taking photos inside and outside. I love to mix it up and take some casual and more formal photos but sometimes what I really want is a super fun back drop and special backdrop. Like for a birthday party, a special spring or summer photo shoot or just for fun! So today I am going to show you how simple it is to create your own DIY Photo Backdrop with only 2 things and about 10 minutes. Seriously! You don't want to miss this...
Isn't this just adorable!? Since I wanted to do a fun summer / spring photo shoot of my kiddos, I decided to create a beautiful watermelon inspired backdrop. The colors are beautiful and vibrant and they are a really fun background for kids photos!
To create this DIY Photo Backdrop, you will need:
- Plastic Tablecloths, Rectangle (I used Spring Green, Magenta Bright Pink and Pink)
- Masking Tape
I grabbed my ladder and used masking tape to tape my tablecloths up as high as I could on some bookcases.
You can tape these to a wall, onto cabinets, bookshelves or even just drape them over an existing curtain rod! There are so many possibilities!
The important thing is to just hang them in a location where you get lots of good natural light if possible!
And if you use masking or artists tape, you will easily be able to remove this DIY backdrop without any damage to your surface.
I loosely gathered each tablecloth and taped it up. You can spread these as far apart or as close together as you prefer.
After the tablecloths were hung up, I gently tucked the bottoms of the table cloths under themselves to hide the ends and create a beautiful area by my floors.
And then we went to town taking some of the cutest photos ever! I loved using these pretty rosette flowers as a cute spring time prop!
But this would also be a beautiful birthday party backdrop where the birthday girl or boy held a gift box or two!
Oh man the possibility of cute summer photos sessions are endless! And this backdrop is so versatile and simple to make that it is perfect for nearly any occasion!

This is the cutest and easier idea ever. I'm thinking of all the color combos you can create with the different holidays and seasons. I'm definitely giving this one a try! hank you for sharing.
What a fabulous idea! So creative. Thanks for sharing. Linda
It is always nice when the solutions are that easy! Not to mention these are typically things you can find at the dollar store. I had others on my "dollar store finds" list post I have planned for June and will include this and link to you.
Thanks for sharing!
Such a simple idea, the best ideas often are. Perfect for so many occasions and reusable over and over too - brilliant!
Nice idea. I bet it would be great to have set up at parties so everyone can grab a photo to remember the event.
Great ideas! There must be so many colors to choose from - well done! Blessings, Janet
What an easy idea for a back drop! Love it! Thanks for linking up to Merry Monday! Sharing on G+! Have a great week!
Thanks for the great idea. I'm going to try this for a school event. Do you tape the cloths together BEFORE you hang them? I have to transport them so I was going to try that. So creative!
I actually did not tape them together, I just taped them up! Super simple! Good luck with your school event!
