How to: Multi-colored backdropPosted: July 15, 2012
We are SUPER stoked (
screaming on the inside)to be participating in this year’s Pinterest challenge, hosted by: Sherry, Kate, Michelle and Katie!!
We pinned several ideas of what we had in mind, but we wanted to put our own spin on. And especially diving in with a budget friendly approach.

Here’s the idea we “re-created” with an array of fabulous colors! You can totally use this idea as decor or as a wedding backdrop, photobooth…heck it could even be a curtain for a kid’s room! Follow these simple instructions and we’ll show you how to get one of these bad boys.
Materials + price list:
Paint chip color samples (any color you like)
Construction paper/card stock (had some at home)
Hot glue gun (still using the same old one )
Glue stick – $4.50 (bought 4 packs at local supply store)
Hole puncher 1.5″ (had it for a LONG time)
Yarn (using from previous lantern project!)
Total cost: $4.50 <- AWESOME!!!!
1. After you have gathered all your paint chip colors and pretty card stocks, you can either use a regular pair of sicssors or use a 1.5″ circle hole puncher to cut out as many as you like. For this situation, we had to punch about 100-150+ circles!(YES, it did take some time to punch holes but hey the end result is phenomenal.No pain, no gain!)
2. Cut out different lengths of yarn. We cut pieces ranging from 7′ (longest) to 5′ (shortest).
3. After cutting your yarn, you can now begin the gluing process. Remember to glue the circles on both sides in order to have a perfect rainbow curtain/backdrop.
adorable or WHAT?!
So, what do you guys think?!
