Easy DIY Photo Booth Backdrop

A DIY backdrop is a good idea when you are looking to minimize your event expenses and you have some hours available to work on your project. It is really helpful if you are doing it for someone else, like a relative or a friend (you’ll become their hero!). A Photo Booth is a great addition for  any social event but if it doesn’t fit your budget, a DIY backdrop is an excellent option for you.  

If you are ready to start, I have good news for you: a photo booth backdrop is pretty easy to make, so keep reading to find out how to do it! 

Some questions to answer before picking the backdrop theme:

  1. How many people would you like to fit in one photo?
  2. What is the event’s theme?
  3. What color matches with the event’s decoration?
  4. What type of material matches with the decoration?


A backdrop made of balloons is always fun. Add as many balloons as necessary to cover the wall. Pick the balloon colors to be the same as your event theme colors.  You can hang a plain white curtain or any other color that matches with your decorations. Don’t forget to choose colors that look good side-by-side for a color block effect. 

Letter balloon wall:

You can put a balloon statement wall; it can be also the name of the birthday guest of honor, a phrase that fits the occasion, and even hashtags that will make your event modern. Fill the giant letters with air and stick them to the wall. Make sure that you use strong tape – you don’t want your photo  booth backdrop to lose any letters. 


Flowers fit perfectly for a celebration. You can add the natural or artificial flowers to an artificial foliage and you can even add some little plants, depending on your celebration theme.


No backdrop is as easy as curtains, simply hang them! Your main goal is to find curtains that are long enough. Be detail oriented and look for the correct material. You can hang some string lights to make your photo booth backdrop look more special. 


A chalkboard backdrop can be a perfect choice for a prom party, a corporate event, and more.  A simple and cheap way is to get some chalkboard paint to turn any surface into a big chalkboard. A great activity for your photo booth session is passing out chalk and having guests leave little notes.
