Holiday party photo backdrop

See also

Photo booths at parties are always a fun way to get memorable photos with family and loved ones. By using affordable materials available from the dollar store you too can make a photo backdrop for your holiday parties, and capture various moments from the party with your camera.


  1. Measure the garland or crepe paper streamer to 7 foot long lengths and cut the pieces using scissors. Continue cutting the garland or crepe paper until you have enough pieces to cover 5-8 feet width of wall.
  2. Using a ladder, tape the garland or streamer vertically on the wall so that the end of the garland or streamer touches the floor.
  3. Continue hanging the garland or streamer pieces next to each other so that none of the wall is visible. The width of the photo backdrop should be at least 5 feet wide to allow enough space for 2 people or up to 8 feet wide for group shots.
  4. Post in front of the backdrop with friends and family and have someone take a photo.
