Smile #226 – Say Yes to DIY #2

Instead of going to the movies, we spent Saturday night in to work on another wedding project.  This time Bubble is getting his hands dirty..literally.

Photobooths have become a party essential.  What is a party without one?  It is a fun way to set the tone for the event.  Plus it would be great for those Instagram pics!  (At the time of writing, Instagram is my favorite social media.)

GEOMETRIC BACKDROP

This idea was inspired by a PopSugar article on creative wedding backdrops.  The bright colored backdrop would be a great photo backdrop.  We can even customize it with our wedding colors. Let’s test drive this idea!

Supplies:

  • Whiteboard
  • Painter’s Tape (1/2 in)
  • Paint (Tan, Wine, Blush, Navy Blue and White)
  • Paint brushes

There is no strict guidelines to this project, in fact, the only limitation is the size of the board.  Why not let Bubble have some fun with this one.  He can add his touches to the wedding decor.  With these supplies, it was up to him to design the board.  At first, he was slightly hesitant.  Afterall  arts and crafts is not exactly his strong suit.  But after showing him the sample picture, Bubble’s creative side kicked off.  He started taping and creating different shapes.  Soon, I was shut from offering any inputs.  This is his project now.

Three hours later, the final coat of paint has dried and his fingers are covered in paint.  The backdrop is finished!  I am very impressed with the final product!  Bubble did a great job with designing and painting.  The shapes are unique and the color are vibrant.

Bubble was surprise at how fun this project has turned out.  His words and I quote, ‘I never knew arts and crafts can be so fun.’  He is so impressed with his handy dandy work.  🙂

Our Saturday night was well spent. 🙂  Now that the trial is done, let’s work on the real thing!
