CREATIVE DIY WEDDING PARTY BACKDROPS-PAPER DAISY BACKDROP

Backdrops DIY’s are one of my favourite things to make. They are usually fairly simple yet hugely effective and can transform any space. They can be used for all types of things whether it be as an alternative to a traditional wedding altar, decor for a cake table or used for a photo booth and are great for any type of party or event. The best thing is they can be easily customized to suit your gig at relatively low cost, so here’s 45 of our favourite DIY’s, suitable for any occasion.
