How To Guide | DIY Streamer Backdrop Photo Wall

Here's a fun and budget-friendly decoration idea to add some sizzle to any event, party or even a photoshoot?

Streamer backdrops are an easy DIY project that looks like it took an expert decorator’s skill but can be done quickly and inexpensively. These backdrop walls provide the perfect photo-op spot, they also help set the stage for whatever special occasion you have planned!

Read on to find out how you can create your own stunning streamer backdrop so your next event will be truly something to remember.

What You Will Need:

  • 95 Streamers

  • Double-sided tape or a stapler

  • Tape Measure

  • Scissors

  • Balloons (optional)

  • Artificial flowers (optional)

  • Frame / Wall / Arch

  • Time | Minimum 3 hours

Step 1:

Gather your supplies. You’ll need streamers in the colour of your choice, tape (or staples), and scissors. For a more festive touch, you can add balloons, glitter walls, paper flower walls, sparkle curtains, pom pom decorations or rustic burlap lace for a rustic feel.

Step 2:

Measure the wall/arch for the length of the streamers. Add an additional 5cm to this measurement and cut your streamers into strips using this measurement. Make sure you have enough streamers to cover the entire area. Double the number of streamers if you want a fuller look with no gaps.

Step 3:

Starting from one side, attach the streamers one by one, overlapping each piece slightly as you go. Once you’ve reached the end of the wall, straighten the bottom of the streamers by cutting to the desired length.

Step 4:

Secure your masterpiece with tape or staples along the edges to make sure everything stays in place. Add balloons, glitter walls and other decorations for a personalized touch!

Make sure the balloons are properly inflated and all decorations are secured. Look out for our next Blog to see how to work with balloons.
