Here was a helpful blog to help with ideas from the Racheal Ray Magazine
So these were super easy and I think it took an hour to make both.
What you will need:
For the Black and White back drop
-Gift wrap (I purchased mine from Hobby Lobby) 25 sq ft
-Tacs or Tape
For the Ribbon Curtain
-Streamers (5 or 6 colors)
-Ribbon (I used 4 different ones)
- Twine or Rope
Make the Black and White back drop
- Unroll your paper and fold in half
-Cut the paper at the fold (this will leave you with two half's roughly 5ft long)
-Hang one of your half on the wall vertically and secure with tacs on all four corners. (imagine your hanging wall paper) ;)
-Then hang the second piece next to it. Align your seems. Tac all four corners.
It should look like a square when you are finished. (the width might be a little shorter than the height)
And now you are picture ready!
Making the Ribbon Curtain
You want your rope to be about 10 feet long.
I secured the two end on chairs with tape, the were spread out, so that I could easily add the ribbon.
I cut the streamers and ribbon at about 10 ft long. Give or take.
Then you tie them to the rope leaving about 3 inches of an end at the top.
Hang and secure with tacs, letting the curtain drape in the middle.
There ya go! A beautiful photo back drop.
For the Props:
Class of 2011
My friend Rachael cut out all kinds of mustaches and put double sided tape on them to stick. We got letter blocks, and whatever we the thought would make these memories fun! Frames are always fun!!
Hope you enjoy this blog! Please check out the Rachael Ray link, she has a few other neat ideas!
