DIY Valentine’s Day Backdrops

NOTE: You should be able to find everything at Hobby Lobby, Michaels, or your local craft store.
  • Bulletin Board Paper
  • Large Foam Stickers
  • Masking or Painter’s Tape (or any tape that’s safe for your walls)
  • Pom Pom String or Bunting (or anything else fun…get creative!)
  • Scissors
  • Measuring Tape (optional)
  • Cut bulletin board paper to size + tape to wall (Admittedly, we often cut after hanging so we don’t have to measure…simply let it rest on the floor and unroll as you pull it up your wall)
  • Place foam stickers on hung-paper (we like the look of either light stickers on dark paper or dark stickers on light paper…but do what suits your vision best!)
  • Hang bunting, pompoms, etc.
  • THAT’S IT! So seriously easy.


  • If you want to color-block like we did, we recommend hanging one strip slightly over the other to ensure no wall is seen.
  • Make sure to hang everything at a height that will be shown when you take photos. i.e. Super low if your kids will be sitting on the ground.
  • Notice our photos below…sometimes we pull the paper a few feet further so the floor doesn’t show. Feel free and tape it to your floor if your afraid your kids might trip on it.
