DIY Photoshoot Backdrop Hack

Hey friends! Today I wanted to share my favorite DIY photoshoot backdrop hack AND it only costs $2!


If you follow me on Instagram you probably already know I am a sucker for a fun do it yourself style photoshoot. That said, I am also very frugal, so to create our own backdrops I simple use two plastic tablecloths from Dollar Tree- that’s it!

To make your own just tape one tablecloth to the wall and one directly under on the floor – since they are a dollar a piece it is the most inexpensive way I’ve found to create a clean backdrop. After, just add your theme décor and you’re ready to start snapping! 

Check out my youngest son’s THREE-REX birthday photos below for an example or click HERE to see our Valentine’s Day photoshoot last year using a pink tablecloth.

PS- You can snag this adorable Dino party décor from Target HERE and stay tuned for a mini balloon column tutorial!

  9. I definitely need to try this, my daughter has her 6th birthday next month and I already know it’s going to be less of a party than ever before, so having a photoshoot for her birthday would be such a fun thing for her (she loves to pose, and take pictures)!
