Oh no. I am back with the fringe. Not only that, but I am back with a whole lotta fringe. But, hey, fringe is good. Fringe is fun. Fringe is easy to make. And, if you make it from tissue paper, fringe is cheap.
I made this backdrop for $13, but you could make it for less. The gold mylar fringe was a big chunk of that change. Here's the breakdown of how the money was spent:
2 Roll of white paper from Dollar Tree - $2
3 packages of tissue paper (orange, yellow & teal) - $3
Gold mylar fringe - $8
Clear tape - already owned
So, here is how it works: Fringe a whole bunch of tissue paper. I didn't think that step needed a lot more instruction, but if you are looking for a little more photo detail go to this post. I fringed the backdrop just the same as the table runner.
Hang your white paper up on the wall. I would recommend building your backdrop where you are wanting to have it for the party, but you can move it afterwards. I did end up moving mine. It was a lot of work and some fringe was sacrificed but it worked. I hung my white paper to the wall with a staple gun. You can use whatever you want to hang paper, just be careful.
Then, along with your little assistant's help, simply tape your fringed sheet of tissue paper and mylar fringe to your backdrop. I eyeballed the measurements and hung a new layer every 6-8 inches.
As soon as you've reached high enough to cover past the tallest person in your party you are all ready to go! Set up your lights and pull out your tripod. Photobooth are such a fun way to bring out the goofier side of people... (see proof above.)
