DIY Confetti Party Backdrop

So….this is my most favorite DIY I have done in awhile! 

One- I love polka dots. Two- it is SO easy. Three- it looks awesome. (in my humble opinion…)

You can use any color or make it more a pop of confetti with a variety of colors.  *Quick Tip- Office Max has contact paper in all the primary colors and in white.  

I am donating my craft/DIY skills to an upcoming shower and the white and brown fit within the theme (you will see the party results in the future, the party has not taken place yet!)

Roll of Kraft Paper
Roll of Contact
Paper in desired color(s)
Large Circle Cutter
Self Healing Mat
Thumbtacks or tape for hanging
*All links are Amazon affiliate links

1) Measure the space where
you would like the backdrop to hang. 
Cut the kraft paper to your desired measurement for the space.
2) Lay your
contact paper on top of the self healing mat and make your circles.  For
the backdrop pictured, I used 4, 6, 7, and 8 inch circles.

3) Gather your circles and
lay out on top of the kraft paper.  (The number of circles you make depends on the size of the backdrop needed.) Play around and move them until you get the look you want.
4) Remove
the back paper on each circle to adhere the circles to the kraft paper.
5) Using
thumbtacks or tape, hang the backdrop to the wall.  Use the backdrop for photos, a dessert, food or beverage table- it will look amazing!
When you
are done, roll up and use for another day!

I hope you like it!  Thank you for visiting A Bubbly Life!  A Bubbly Life is on FacebookTwitter and Pinterest, would love for you to join me there!

    This looks great, much better than last time I needed a backdrop for my photos and had to hang my bedsheet from the curtain rail!

    No. Way. I just started cutting out a bunch of circles today to do pretty much that!!! You are seriously awesome! (I had to say that since I'm doing something basically the same. LOL) Your party set up look gorgeous. 🙂
