I tend to be the type of person that has a last minute party with friends. Especially during the summer. Last summer we threw an impromptu 4th of July party for a few friends and their kids and while everyone had a blast, I hope to be a little more prepared this year. That’s why I love this DIY 4th of July party backdrop. All you need are a few supplies to create this colorful backdrop that will be sure to stand out at your summer party. Not only are the supplies minimal, but it is quick to set up and makes the perfect photobooth backdrop too!
- Foam Stars ( I used 4 packs)
- Glue Dots
- Letter Balloons (to spell boom or even a larger phrase like land of the free, etc)
Begin by placing one glue dot on the back of one of the foam stars and adhere it to the wall.
Repeat with all your stars alternating them red and blue. If you are putting your stars up on a white wall, then you don’t need the white stars. However, if you backdrop is going up on a colored wall (even gray), feel free to throw the colored starts into the mix.
Once your wall is covered with the red and blue stars in the alternating patterned rows, it’s time to add your balloons. For these, just use the straw in the package and gently blow up the balloons and string them on a piece of twine. Then use thumb tacks to secure the strand to the wall over the stars.
