DIY: Affordable Baby Gender Reveal Backdrop (or any theme)

February 24, 2018


My sister is having a Gender Reveal Party for her new little nugget. Since I have the honor of knowing what the baby will be, I accepted her request to make a backdrop for her party.
I've made a backdrop before for my bestie's Bridal Shower so I gladly accepted!

When you look on Etsy or browse around to have one made for you, you'll see a price that'll make you want to change your mind on even having a backdrop. I am for one, wasn't going to hire someone to make it and charge me over $100 to maybe end up being thrown away!

So why not a Affordable DIY backdrop? My sister spent $6 and me, $13. That's less than $20 in total!


You will need the following items:
  • Ribbon - $4 @ Dollar Store 
  • Streamers - $6 @ Dollar Store
  • Double sided tape (extra strength) - $8 @ Target
  • Scissors 
  • Table cover - $1 @ Dollar Store
  • Masking tape
  • Stool/Chair
  • Banner/*Frame - DIY Recycled from stationary
STEP 1
Stand on a stool/chair and using the masking tape, tape up the table cover against the wall. Make sure to measure how long and wide you'd like the backdrop to be. I used the entire width but for length, I did it between 6.50-7 ft. You can cut the access off or simply fold inward.


STEP 2
Measure the length of your ribbons/streamers to the table cover length and cut. Repeat this process until you have a handful of cut streamers. You may also continue measuring/cutting while working throughout the backdrop shall you need more. In total, I had 32 cut streamers.

STEP 3
Using the double sided tape, place the tape at the start of the streamer about 3 inches length only on one side. The side of the tape, place the streamer against the table cover and press ensuring the streamer sticks. Continue this step all throughout.


STEP 4
Hang banner or any added on details as you wish!
*I had leftover ribbon so I made bows and placed on top of the backdrop.
