Lastly, 2 seven foot PVC pipes and one for the top as wide as you would like. Mine was a little bit narrow, I would probably do five feet for the top bar.

Start by putting together the two bottom stands. Hook two fitted elbow joints into the “T” joint as show in the picture.

Now is time to decorate! Using curtains or table cloths cover the frame. I used a table cloth and pinned it around the frame. A curtain would be even easier. Just slip it on the top pipe before hooking it into the elbows.

Add a banner that matches your party theme and colors. If setting up outside in a yard or grass, use wire hangers to keep the backdrop in place. Just straighten out the hanger and stick it into the ground like a stake and fix it into the feet of the DIY photo booth backdrop.

Props like a chalkboard are fun and interactive for guests. Mustaches are huge right now, cut some out of paper and glue to sticks for an easy prop. Any hats, boas, jackets, etc. Will make it fun for guests to dress up and enjoy the photo booth!
