DIY Foiled New Years Eve Backdrop

Celebrate the new year in style with a gold and silver hexagon backdrop!

Happy New Year! We're digging this post up from the archives. Former Blitsy Creative Team member Natalie Wright previously shared this easy photo backdrop. There's still time to whip this up. Enjoy!


I may not have my resolutions in order for next year, but I sure do have a fun New Years Eve party planned! I wanted to share what I am putting together for our New Years Eve photo booth backdrop. It works fabulously as a backdrop for your food table as well! All you need to make it is a few supplies:

To get started, you are first going to open your Heidi Swapp Minc Coasters pack and decide which coaster you will foil, with either silver or gold. I just split mine right in half, so I had a good variety of each one.

Next, run your coasters through you Minc machine using your carrier sheet and reactive foil.

After you have run all your coasters through the Minc machine, lay them out on a table in the order you want to attach them to your wall. Then use your double-stick tape to adhere them in place. I just used a tiny piece of tape for each one to make sure I don't hurt my paint on the wall.

Be sure to stagger your hexagon coasters so that they rotate both design and foil color. There are six coasters in each pack, so you will want to purchase several packs depending on how big of a space you want to cover.

To bling up my party a little more, I used gold and silver glitter paper to cover both the table and the cupcakes. Whew! This party is going to sparkle!

I also picked up some pretty paper straws and topped them with metallic bows for our glasses. So easy, and it definitely sparkles with my backdrop.

This backdrop was so easy to throw together. It's perfect for New Years Eve, and I love how trendy the hexagons look on my kitchen wall! I think I might pick up one more set to use as... well, coasters of course! ;)

Hope your holidays have been just as sparkly as mine, and a very Happy New Years to you!
