We have received so many emails asking us how we constructed and designed our Tissue Flower Backdrop for Gaby’s Baby Shower. No more guessing! Follow the step by step instructions and you will have an amazing backdrop on each and every party you celebrate! Scroll down and you will also find alternative design ideas for backdrops…The sky is the limit!
Tissue Flower Backdrop
Step #1: Build your Wood Frame.
We built our free standing Wood Frame by following the step by step instructions from the DIY Network, here. Have your wood boards cut at any Home Improvement Store. We bought ours at The Home Depot and they cut them for free to the specified length. It just makes the building process much easier and faster. You can make the frame as tall as you wish. We built ours 6 feet tall for easier storing and decorating.
Tissue Flower Backdrop Supplies:
Our Tissue Flowers are available at the Via Blossom shop, here.
Cut the cardboard diagonally. Fluff the Tissue Flowers just as you would a tissue pom pom or follow the step by step instructions included in the Tissue Flower package. Using the glue gun, glue the bottom of the flowers to the cardboard covering the entire area.
Staple the Tissue Flower Collage to the left corner of the frame. With the scissors cut the excess cardboard.
Cut your ribbon into 6 feet stripes – I used around 18 stripes for the entire project. I recommend buying the 2.5″ width, 25 yards rolls in different colors from The Paper Mart. Staple about 6 ribbon stripes on the top left side of the frame and then attach the ribbons to the left side of the frame with a piece of satin ribbon.
Staple the rest of the 6 feet ribbon stripes to the right top side of the frame and let them hang freely.
Other Backdrop Ideas:
Let your imagination fly and incorporate different decorations such Tissue Fans, Honeycomb Balls, Foil Balloons or tissue Pom Poms to create your own backdrop. Instead of ribbon use our Tissue Festooning Garland for added texture. For a modern look hang from side to side our Gold Foil Fringe Drape.
If you throw beautiful parties frequently, having a free standing wood frame is an instrumental decorating tool. It creates a Wow factor yet it is so easy to decorate. It’s definitely worth the effort!
