Learn how to create this fun, sequin balloon backdrop with just a few supplies – use this idea for any celebration you have!
Skills Required: None. Even if you’ve never crafted before, you can make this balloon background. You’ll be applying glitter to balloons with Mod Podge.
Hey guys, Lindsay from Frenchie here with a fun party DIY that will save you some coin! I love all the fun photo backdrops I’m seeing lately.
I thought I’d give it a try with some of my favorite sequins from Hazel and Ruby. This balloon backdrop is perfect for any celebration you’re planning on having this year.
I started out with the basics and added what I needed from there. I really only had to buy two things because I had the rest on hand.
Gather These Supplies
- Glitter Mod Podge
- Hazel and Ruby Sequins Tubes (mine were the gold and pinks but are also available in greens)
- foam brush
- washi tape
- white sheet or wall!
Because I blog, I have a 3 x 5′ white backdrop. I used that to cover these weird archways we have in our front entry (I really have no other area for a thing like this :/).
Just use your wall if you have the space, or hang a good colored sheet for the balloon backdrop on a wall. My plan was to use my air compressor but I could not find my attachment.
So, I gathered my four & six year old and had them start blowing! I’d finish the balloons off and tie them. It’s a great source of punishment if you’re looking for one!
I next brushed the Mod Podge on the lower half with the foam brush and sprinkled my sequins on. If you were to dip it, it’d work – but you’d need a lot of sequins for an entire balloon backdrop.
I then taped them onto my balloon background. In total I used eleven balloons, and it was enough to get the look I wanted to achieve. I think my backdrop would look super fun going all the way from floor to ceiling!
My daughter thought the sparkles were the coolest. She was my little model and I told her that I’d pay her a dollar. Works every time!
I hope that you enjoyed my balloon backdrop post today, and I’d love to know it if any of you try it! Let me know in the comments.
