DIY: Greenery Backdrop


Clever frameworks are soaring in popularity and can be used to highlight your ceremony site, welcome area, sweetheart table or photo booth. On a budget, you can re-use this backdrop in multiple locations. Check out our simple DIY instructions on how to create your own lush greenery backdrop.

The Supplies:

The Step-By-Step

Step One:

You will need a frame to start. We recommend 6ft x 8ft. (Note: you want to use a frame that will be strong enough to hold the backdrop and greenery without warping. We have used PVC piping and painted it copper to achieve this look.)


Step Two:

Using your wire or zip ties, begin adding greenery to the outside frame. Place as you see fit. We recommend using different types and shapes of greenery to achieve a look similar to the image above.

(Note: Ensure you have secured the greenery tightly to the frame, so it will not fall off during move.)

Step Three:

After you have placed all of your greenery, it is time to add your personalized greenery backdrop. Using wire secure the backdrop to the center of the frame, hanging approximately one foot below the frame itself. Once this is placed feel free to add more greenery as you see fit.

And presto! You have yourself a beautiful piece that blends the appeal of the outdoors with the indoors.
