DIY Streamer Photo Backdrop

How To Make A Photo Booth Backdrop With Streamers

Whether you have a photo booth or a selfie station for your next event, this super easy photo backdrop made from streamers is super affordable and easy to create. All you need is some tape, scissors and a few rolls of crepe paper streamers.  We also use this same technique to decorate our kids’ bedroom doors for their birthdays.  They open up their door the next morning to a curtain of birthday streamers.

Painters Tape or Masking Tape

We used painters tape so we wouldn’t ruin the paint on the wall, but masking tape will work too.  Make a small tape roll and stick to the wall continue to unroll the tape sticky side out along the desired length of the wall.  You might need to attach a few small tape rolls behind the long line of tape to keep lying flat against the wall.

Cut a strip of crepe paper and place it directly on the sticky side of the tape. Unravel the streamer to the ground.  Cut the second roll of streamer and overlap the second piece of crepe paper.  Continue putting up lines of streamers until you’ve covered the entire line of tape.

You can use multiple different colors of streamers.  We used three different colors.

To keep the streamers lined up run an additional line of tape at the bottom and attach the streamers to secure them.

And for a fun birthday surprise, line the top of the birthday door with tape, sticky side out.  Continue placing lines of streamers to the top of the doorframe until you’ve gone across the entire door frame.
