It really shouldn’t have come as a surprise how popular my DIY piñata fringe backdrop post was, it’s so fun. But you can’t seem to get enough of it! The process, however, can be a bit time consuming. That’s why I wanted to share a different way to make an easy fringe backdrop for your next party. And this one won’t take you a week to make! In fact, this metallic fringe backdrop will take less than 30 minutes to put together. Bonus: it has just as much pizzazz as the piñata fringe photo backdrop!
Since it is almost Valentine’s Day, I went with a colorful 80’s themed Valentine’s party with this backdrop. But you can adjust the colors you use to fit your party theme. It wasn’t until I started planning out this backdrop that I realized how many different colored metallic fringe streamers are available. With the options you could easily do silver and gold, or all blues, greens, and silver for an under the sea party, or all pink and red for a full on tradtional valentine’s party. The color combos are endless.
I of course went with rainbow fringe for a totally colorful fringe party backdrop.
Materials to make your own easy fringe backdrop:
- Metallic fringe in your choice of colors (I used aquamarine, fuchsia, baby pink, rose gold, silver, red, and gold for my backdrop)
- Thumbtacks (optional)
Begin by opening the fringe curtain packages. I found the best way to get the multi colored layered look is to cut the fringe curtains into 8″ sections, then I simply peeled off the backing strip to reveal the adhesive and stuck this to the wall. Then I continued alternating colors to create the first layer of the backdrop. Next, I started on a second row that was a half step over from the first row and attached the fringe about 6″ higher than the first row. Repeat this all the way across the wall. The final step was to repeat with a 3rd row 6″ above the 2nd and again a half step over.
This alternating of colors and rows helped to create the multi color layered fringe look.
The fringe backdrop looks super behind a dessert table or even as a photo backdrop. And as you can see it is as easy as cutting the fringe sheets into strips and layering them on the wall.
Such a glittery and show stopping look for not much work! Just how I like it!
