How to Create a DIY Baby Shower Background 

DIYing may be the best option if you have a specific vision in mind for your baby shower background. 

Before you begin, consider your color scheme, budget, and the “vibe” you are going for. Then, choose your backdrop material. Potential options include wood, fabric, pallets, sheets, streamers, or curtains. 

Once you’ve chosen your backdrop material, determine what accessories you want. For example, for a white fabric backdrop, you can add balloons, multicolored streamers, or a glittery curtain on top to make it really pop. Other accessories include stuffed animals, printed images, string lights, and flowers. 

Adding a sign onto your backdrop saying your baby’s name, a cute baby-related phrase, or your due date could be a really sweet touch. You can make your own sign out of paper, cardboard, or another craft material or buy a lighted or wooden sign that you can reuse in your little one’s room. 

Make sure you have tape, staples, tacks, and a hot glue gun while constructing your background to ensure everything stays in place. 

When your backdrop is complete, you can adhere it to the wall using tape or tacks. Another option is to buy a photo backdrop frame and sew pockets on each side of your backdrop for a more professional look.
