How To Hang A Photo Booth Backdrop – Easy Set-up And Tear-down

Do you love having photo booths at your parties? Me too! Do you hate trying to figure out how not to damage the walls that you so carefully and painstakingly painted? Me too! {wink} That’s why I’m so excited to share the newest product from Command!

Halloween-Party-Photo-Backdrop-Kim-Byers

Command now has an entire line of party specific supplies and let me tell you, this party planning girl is ecstatic! It took me an entire month to talk my husband into painting this room and believe me… I wouldn’t put anything on it if I thought it were going to damage it because it might take me another month to get around to touching it up. {grin}

The Command Mini Spring Clips are perfect for lightweight fabric. (NOTE: I have used glue dots to hang fabric before these because it’s strong… however it doesn’t come off easily. In this picture I used glue dots inside my clips. The glue holds heavier fabrics and the clips allow you to measure a straight line and they come off easy!)

I used the Banner Anchors for my tassels. All worry free!

So here are the easy steps for setting up your photo booth:

  1. Level and place the Command Mini Spring Clips,
  2. Hang fabric,
  3. Place Command Banner Anchors,
  4. Hang tassels, and
  5. Add a few spooky props

What if you want to hang decorations from the ceiling?! Either for your photo booth or for other decorations? Command has that covered too!

Easy Sew Halloween Placemat With Witch’s Hat Utensil Holder

Browsing around my JoAnn Fabric and Craft Store I stumbled on this darling witch silhouette design and was instantly inspired to make these easy sew placemats. And what do you think of my witch’s hat utensil holders?

Easy Sew Halloween Placemat with Witch's Hat Utensil Holder | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

I’m personally in love! They look so cute on my island bar. (We just painted the kitchen a silver gray. I need to load some pics for you!)

And the best part… they take no time at all. I made my placemats 18.5 x 13.5″. You’ll need (per placemat):

  • Witch silhouette fabric (with the seasonal fabrics), 1/2 yard
  • Silver glitter polka dot fabric (in general fabric, on the wall in my JoAnn), less than an 1/8 yard (smallest you can purchase)
  • Wonder Under (comes in a roll 15″ x 15 yards)
  • Gray thread
  • Ruffle, 1/4 yard (has a mesh backing)
  • Clear ruler
  • Cutter
  • Cutting mat
  • Optional: Stitch in the Ditch sewing foot, Sewing clips

Easy Sew Halloween Placemats with Witch's Hat Utensil Holder | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

Easy tutorial:

  1. Cut – cut out placemats (being careful to match up designs, I used her nose as a guide), 18.5″ x 13.5″
  2. Iron – iron Wonder Under to one side of fabric, line up and iron both sides together (thickens fabric without needing batting, could also use interfacing)
  3. Cut – cut out witch’s hats, 4 3.4″ across top and 7 1/8″ inches to tip
  4. Iron –  iron Wonder Under to one side of fabric, line up and iron both sides together
  5. Cut,  clip, sew – cut embellishment to length (slightly longer than hat), clip and use a large stitch. If you have a rubber stylus, use it to hold the ruffles out of the way.
  6. Measure, mark – measure placement on the placemat, mark
  7. Sew – with a .30 stitch, sew witch’s hat utensil holder in place
  8. Sew – with a .30 stitch, embellish the edge of the placemat, not necessary, but lovely
