Photography Background Decorations

Hello everyone! Today, I'm sharing with you some decorations that I made for my daughter to use on her photography background for Christmas pictures.  (She is an amazing photographer!)  I was so pleased with how they turned out and they looked amazing in her pictures, if I do say so myself! :-) Here is a finished picture and then I will share details:

Cricut cartridges used:
Pretty Pennants
Art Deco
When It's Cold Outside

I decided to keep the colors neutral since, with Christmas pictures, the subjects clothing tends to be colorful! :-) 

Here are a few close-ups:
I backed the letters with gold foil paper. I love how it looks as it peeks through!

The detail of the snowflakes looks great on the black background! I used mini clothespins to hold the banner pieces on the twine.

When my daughter was done and took the backdrop down,  I hung the banner on our wall to display throughout the season! I plan on using it next year too, but I think I will add some extra color and decorations to it for some variety! 

Here are a few of the pictures from her Christmas photography sessions:

Aren't they amazing!!?? I'm inspired now to make more banners and decorations!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Until next time, create something beautiful!

I LOVE this idea!!! My son is graduating from high school this May and I have been all over Pinterest looking for photo booth/back drop ideas that he would go for. I already have a banner designed and now I know what to do with it!!!!
