“How do you create that swag across the top of a backdrop?” was this month’s most frequently asked question by our customers. So, how do you create a swag across the top of a backdrop? We had a couple of ideas, but wanted to give our customers a simple and easy solution.
What you will need:
- 1 pipe and drape backdrop kit
- 3 extra 10 ft drapes*
- Uplights (optional)
*When placing your rental, order additional drapes for your valance look.
Setup your pipe and drape backdrop kit.
Here’s how to quickly setup a pipe and drape backdrop:
Create the valance look. We used the same Poly Premier drapes that would typically come with the backdrop kit.
A. Take one additional drape creating a U shape and hang over top of backdrop.
B. Behind the backdrop, tie the end of the drape to the backside of the pipe. (Please note, securing drape by tying ends is not required)
C. Finally, return to the front of the backdrop and adjust drape for a swoosh valance look. Repeat same step with the additional drapes.
Once set up, add uplights for an added pop of color and you’re done! Seriously that’s it. Enjoy!
Create this look in a matter of minutes! It is so simple and easy, we couldn’t even fill out a third step for it. Well folks, We can only hope that our next mission will be so easy. Enjoy your 2-step swag!
