Late in June I shared my Fourth of July tablescape with you all, and wanted to circle back to go more in-depth with one aspect of the decor–my easy crepe paper backdrop. Not only does this technique make a cute table backdrop, but it’s also great for photo backdrops!
Now, obviously, I used red, white and blue crepe paper, but you can use any colors (I think 3 colors is best) to coordinate with your event. Here’s the easy how-to:
crepe paper rolls
Step 1: Take your crepe paper and cut into lengths approx. 4″ long. I cut three lengths at once to make the work go a little faster:) Once you have your pieces cut, use your scissors to trim the bottoms at an angle.
Keep going until you have about a million of these pieces cut. Just kidding. You only need about half a million
Now, take two pieces of crepe paper (alternating colors), place them so that the short end of each piece is facing the inside, and tape to the wall.
Start at the bottom, and place each subsequent row about a couple inches above the one below it.
Keep going until you’re happy with your backdrop, and that’s it!
I love super simple, easy backdrop ideas that give maximum impact to your event or tablescape.
