Hi. My name is Tara and I’m a paper plate backdrop addict. With all the color paper plates out there the design possibilities are endless! When recently assigned a Pokemon party for Birthday in a Box, I thought it was a no brainer to create Pokeballs as a paper plate backdrop design!
To make this paper plate backdrop you will need:
- Red, Black and White paper plates
- White Cardstock
- 2 Small Bowls of different sizes (to trace)
Turn your black paper plate over and place your ruler in the center. Trace it on both sides. Place two small bowls on top of the center, one at a time and trace each one. Cut out the final shape create as one piece. Separately cut out the center hole so you have the black shape seen above.
Cut a white and red paper plate in half. Put one of each next to each other and secure together with tape. Place a white cardstock circle in the center and cover with the black paper plate share you previous cut. Glue these two pieces in place. Now you have a Pokeball plate!
Before hanging, lay your paper plates on the floor to determine your design layout. Once you have it as desired, flip each plate over and place painter’s tape on the back in a loop shape. Stick them to the wall behind your food table.
I LOVE how this paper plate backdrop came out for my Pokemon party! This was the first time I shot a party in our newly finished foyer and I can’t wait to do more!
