So as mentioned earlier, I am loving my new background! I also have several paper backgrounds that hang in the garage, but you never know when you’ll need a portable stand for a background. You can purchase a Background Stand if you’re not the DIY type, but if you want to be thrifty, I have a tutorial today for a homemade version, using inexpensive PVC pipes – – –
On New Year’s Eve day I had the grand idea to have a impromptu Photo Booth at our party that night – – I mentioned it to Trevor and he thought he could whip something up – and it’s perfect.
I came down to him putting it together minutes before the party:
And then after all that I kind of forgot about doing the photobooth – and when I remembered, I couldn’t get the photobooth app on my phone to work correctly. Anyways, we did get this picture:
So, the way this goes together – – The two side pieces are glued into formation. And then the 3 pieces (one on the top, 2 on the bottom) that go across aren’t glued, so that I can pull the stand apart for storage when it’s not in use.
Then you hang a fabric sheet or background paper or a professional background or whatever you have with just some cheapo clips at the top. That’s it!
I don’t have exact measurements, but I know it’s 5 feet tall and 5 feet across. You stare at the picture to see what kind of elbow/corner PVC pieces he used, and meanwhile I’ll ask him and let you know….
