Hello, crafty friends! Want to know my favorite thing about working with crepe paper?? Crepe paper projects are a little bit of work for a whole lot of wow! It’s so such an easy and inexpensive craft supply. It’s quickly becoming one of my favorites! The Darice crepe paper sheets allow you to go BIG with your projects too. They measure a whopping 20″ wide by 7.5 feet long. Plenty of space to cut big objects, and they add such a fun texture too. Ready to get started with some fun Valentine backdrop ideas using crepe paper??
Crepe Paper Valentine Backdrop Ideas Project Supplies:
That’s it, just a few simple supplies!
To get started, first cut your crepe paper into 18″ x 18″ squares. I cut equal amounts of pink and red, but you can use any color you want! Black and white would be neat for Valentine backdrop ideas too.
Next, fold your crepe paper in half, and cut a half heart shape along the seam. Open up your cut to reveal the heart shape. I cut about 24 for my wall, but you should measure your space first so you don’t have to cut more than you need.
Adhere the hearts to your wall gently, being careful not to tug on the crepe paper. It can be delicate, so don’t stretch it as you attach it to the wall. You can also use a low-tack adhesive instead, if you have really matte paint and are worried about the pop-dots coming off.
Stay tuned for more fabulous crepe paper projects. I just can’t get enough of them! In the meantime, check out these DIY St. Patrick’s Decorations using crepe paper sheets to make a shamrock backdrop.
