DIY Winter Photo Backdrop

Today I’m going to show you how to make a super simple photo backdrop for your next party!

I created this one specifically for New Years Eve, because I thought it would be really fun to have guests include their resolutions as part of the photo. This is also great way to repurpose parts of your wreaths and trees! Give it a watch, and then we’ll chat some more!

Currently I have this baby displaying holiday cards from friends- and although the frame isn’t really meant to be seen, I think it’s a really fun addition to our living room!

Speaking of the frame…I didn’t even think to share the build on the video, because we kinda just threw it together quickly- but here are the bare bones instructions!


  • (2) 8ft 1” x 2”
  • (1) 4ft 1” x 4”
  • (1) 4ft 1” x 6”
  • Screws

Note: Pre drill all screw holes

1.  Cut the 8ft pieces down to (2) 7ft pieces to create the sides. Set the excess 1ft pieces aside for later.

2.  Screw the 1” x 6” along the bottom to create a base and then 1” x 4” about 12 inches up to create a support.

3. Cut the corners off of the excess 1’ pieces from earlier diagonally.

4. Screw those in to stabilize the 1” x  6” edge to the sides at the base.

5. Drill holes down the sides every 8 inches or as desired.

6. Thread the twine across the holes.

This frame can really be used for any photo backdrop! Hearts for Valentine’s Day, shamrocks, Fall leaves… I’m so excited to have fun with it all year!
