  • Wrapping paper
  • Snowflake ornaments
  • Double-sided tape
  • Fishing line (or other string)


  • Tape a roll of wrapping paper high on the wall and let it hang all the way to the floor. Add several pieces side by side until you achieve your desired backdrop width.
  • Tie fishing line to snowflake ornaments and tape them to the ceiling at various heights.
  • Finish by camouflaging the floor with a blanket or gift bags stuffed with tissue paper. (This is optional: depending on where you place the camera and how you frame the shot, you might not see the floor in photos.)
  • Create a festive mood with soft Christmas music, dim the lights and encourage your guests to mug away!


Double-sided tape can be substituted for painter's tape, tacks or whatever tape you have on hand. 
How much wrapping paper you'll need to complete your backdrop is dependent on how wide your roll is and how much space you want to cover. Depending on the size of your space and the width of your wrapping paper, one to two rolls should suffice. I used most of one roll to complete this backdrop.
