DIY Flower Photobooth Backdrop

Happy Spring! And even more exciting, welcome back to our new photobooth backdrop series — I’m loving dreaming up ideas for this thing! Today we’re celebrating Spring with some pretty scattered tissue paper flowers. I think they kind of look like a cross between tulips and poppies. But whatever they are, they’re lovely! And this particular backdrop would be perfect for decoration at a shower or a wedding. Wanna know how to do it? Gather your materials:

  • tissue paper sheets
  • scissors
  • masking tape or glue dots
  • a blank wall

Start by cutting your tissue paper into sheets that are 20″ by 10″. Fold them accordion style, and cut one end into a rounded shape with your scissors.

Unfold the tissue, and at the square end, gather the tissue together by crumpling it slightly. Fold a piece of masking tape around itself so that it’s double-sided, and place it on one end of the crumpled tissue paper. (You can also use large glue dots for this — I preferred masking tape for this project.) Stick the opposite end to the other side of the masking tape so that the paper forms a flower shape. Mold the paper until you’re happy with the shape of the flower. Now make a bunch of these!

After your flowers are all made, start placing them on the blank wall with rolled masking tape or glue dots. Decide on your pattern and continually step back to see your progress. I preferred a scattered look, but this would also be beautiful with a solid wall full of flowers.

Now have fun! How pretty would this be behind a dessert table, too? It’s kind of somewhere between photo backdrop and art installation. Happy Spring! xoxo

    1. Hi Angela! Actually after I figured out how to make the first one, they came together really quickly. If you cut a few sheets at the same time it’s even faster. I was able to make all of the flowers in less than an hour, and it took about 20 minutes to put them all up.

  1. Oh my goodness, you have no idea how excited I am that I found your blog! You have the best ideas and everything here is so lovely!! I am def gonna do this backdrop, it is pure genius! I especially like how it gets thin as it goes, kinda ombre-ish right? 😉 Following along on Bloglovin’ excited to be a new reader!


  2. This is such a lovely idea I’m planning on doing it as a birthday surprise for my mum! She’ll be thrilled to have an updated family portrait – So clever!

  3. So cute. I think it might be fun to make yellow or white centers and have the colored around them as separate flowers.
    thanks for sharing

  4. I do trust all the concepts you’ve presented in your post. They are really convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for starters. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.

  5. This would be perfect for a baby shower or a wedding backdrop. Now I need someone pregnant or getting married.
