Hey guys!!! I know it's been a long time..BUT we're BACK!!! We had a number of life changes that occurred since the last time I posted. I am so excited to be back! We have learned so much during our time away and will be making improvements to our videos and blogs! We have tons of material already recorded and will be back to updating more frequently. I wanted to catch up with you guys before I started today's blog.
My grandmother turned 75 this year and had a big party. I wanted to make a backdrop that I have seen online several times. Zo (husband) and I decided that we could build a backdrop ourselves and do it on a budget. We spent a total of $45 for this project!!!! I was very happy about that!
Here's what you need:
Supply List Details:
2. 2-2X4's and 6- 1x4's
3. Wood screws ( we used 3 inch)
4. Faux grass (my mom picked this up from Menards) $14
6. Staple Gun
8. Spray Paint
9. Faux Flowers (3 bunches from dollar tree)
Total Cost: $50
Here is the faux grass we got from Menards. We used about 6 feet of this.
We used (2) 6ft 2x4's as the height. We used (2) 5 ft 1x4's for the width. You want to make the shape of a square.
The next step which is not pictured is stapling the faux grass to the wood.
After this step, we decided add legs to the back of the frame. We cut the 1x4's down to about 3 feet. We attached it to wood of the frame. My husband wanted more reinforcement and added an arm to the leg which is about 2 feet.
This is what your back drop should look like after you staple it to the wood. Now you are free to decorate as you please.
Sooo... Since this was a temporary backdrop I decided to go the cheap route for the letters. I purchased stencil from Menards. I traced the stencil on to cardboard and cut it out. Once I cut the letters out I spray painted them with gold spray paint.
I added dollar tree faux flowers to the corner. I stapled the flowers to the backdrop. I also used double sided tape to attach the letters.
I hope you enjoyed this project!! I will see you next time!!!
