DIY: Ribbon Photo Backdrop

So as most of you guys know Miss Mel and I are obsessed with most everything concerning glitter. When thinking of fun decorations for our New Years Eve party we made this awesome glitter ribbon photo backdrop. It was super simple and here's how we did it!

12 Glitter Ribbon spools (here is what we used)
2-3 Yard stick or skinny cylinder
2-3 yards thick string

Step One:
Drill holes on both ends of the stick or cylinder that you using. Tie your string to each end through the holes you just made.

Step Two:
Unravel or unroll all your ribbon spools cutting roughly at every 8 foot interval. 

So maybe I had to make myself a little tutu out of all the ribbon...

Step Three:
Tie one end of your ribbon strips to the stick or cylinder. Make sure to squish the knots together so you can't see the stick.

Step Four:
Hang up your backdrop on any wall. Here's our finished product!

We took some really funny pictures from behind the backdrop at the party.

But it was also a great background to the party pictures!

It was super simple to make and now it's hanging up in my apartment for any impromptu  photo sessions! Everyone got a great kick out of taking pictures with it! It'd be great for any type of party. Valentine's day is right around the corner, a pink, red and white one would be adorable!
