Well I hope you like shiny things because this photobooth backdrop is the sparkliest thing ever. We were recently in New York City and visited Doughnut Plant which has a disco ball bathroom. I got so inspired! I thought it would be fun to create a photobooth backdrop out of mirror board. This would be fun for New Years Eve or just for any sparkly event.
The little mirror squares on the wall mimic a disco ball and we added lots of shiny props and of course…disco balls. My favorite color is definitely shiny!
Step 1: To figure out how much space you’ll want to cover you’ll need to do math! Once you figure that out you can order the Mirror board Paper. Then cut down the mirror board paper into squares. We made ours 4″ x 4.”
Step 2: To cut either use an exacto and cut a few sheets at a time or we had a friend with a cutting machine do it and it took 15 minutes.
Step 3: Lightly draw a vertical line on the wall with pencil. You’ll use this line to guide you when positioning the individual pieces.
Step 4: Apply a loop of gaffers tape to the back of each square and stick onto the wall until the wall is filled.
Step 5: If you have extra mirror board, you can cover props! We decided to make a disco box.
