Learn how to use pre-made paper fans to make a custom photo booth backdrop.

One of the many items I created for the Alice in Wonderland inspired party was this paper fan photo booth back drop. It was so simple to assemble and looked lovely in the photos.

If you’d like to make one for your wedding or next party, start by cutting a piece of fabric the height and width of the photo booth. I used white cotton muslin for this. To save time I purchased the paper fans from Party City. Arrange the fans on the fabric exactly the way you would like it then use safety pins to pin each fan to the fabric. Super simple and so cute!

  1. I love this idea and am thinking of it for my wedding! Can you let me know how many paper fans you used?
    thank you

    1. I can’t remember exactly how many I used but it was approximately 10 large fans and 20 small fans for a backdrop that was about 5′ wide. I’d use more if you want a wider or taller backdrop.
