Need some ideas to create a GORGEOUS shower for a GORGEOUS bride?
This simple DIY Lit Tulle Backdrop will bring your shower decor to another level of beautiful!
This backdrop could be used in several different ways… bridal shower (how about these fun printable photo props?!), baby shower, photo backdrop, birthday party (HERE are tons of printable props)…. you name it! Nice thing is, it is fairly budget friendly and easy enough for a beginner crafter.
I used a cheap white curtain rod from Walmart to begin with. The room I was decorating has drop tile ceilings, so I simply hung the rod evenly from the metal tile dividers with fishing line. (Fishing line is a must have when decorating btw!)
I had found some mini lights on clearance at Hobby Lobby, so I purchased two packs of 24 ft in length each. I strung these strings of lights over the curtain rod, using scotch tape to secure the lights in place along the rod. I found they wanted to clump together and taping them helped keep the ‘strings’ evenly spaced out along the rod. Check out some similar lights HERE.
Next step was to drape cheap plastic table cloth over the lights. I used a cream color from Party City, where you can find it in rolls. Check out this type of tablecloth HERE. The plastic over the bulbs gives a beautiful softness to the lights. Then I draped several layers of tulle over the tablecloth. I had about 4 layers of tulle total.
To finish off the backdrop, I added the flowers across the top. These flowers were purchased at Hobby Lobby. You can find the prettiest flowers there! Do you know that all the flower stems are half off every other week? So, if you need flowers and they are not on sale… just wait till the next week for some amazing savings!
I started with a garland of greenery and simply hot glued my different flowers to it. It was then all one piece, so I used zip ties and attached it to the curtain rod. So easy and stayed in place perfectly!
