bloody DIY Halloween photo booth backdrop

Summer is almost over and the days are getting shorter already. Fall is knocking on our doors, my favorite season.

For our ‘Halloween meets Oktoberfest’ Party last year, my husband and I created a bloody Halloween photo booth backdrop. So we could take some cool pics with our friends.

What you will need:

  • an old white bed sheet or some white curtains (if you’re using curtains, you may also need a curtain rod)
  • fake blood (you can also make some DIY fake blood, see instructions below)
  • empty bowl for mixing the fake blood
  • gloves
  • paint brush
  • carton or foil to cover furniture and floors

 

Recipe for DIY fake blood:

Mix red food coloring or red beet juice with flour, some water and some cocoa powder.

First, hang up the bed sheet or curtains or lay it flat on the ground, if you like to paint it on the floor. Use some carton or folie to cover up and protect the floor and surrounding furniture from “blood splatters”. I painted my photo booth backdrop in our barn, so I don’t need to cover everything up.

Now you can start with the fake blood. It shouldn’t be too thick so that it can run down the sheet or curtain a little.

Now the fun part, the painting and splattering with the fake blood, it’s best to wear gloves for that. There are no limits, you can paint with a paint brush or just use your fingers. I like some handprints and some blood running down. You can also just dip your fingers into the fake blood and splash it onto the photo booth backdrop. I also added, “you’re next” to it.

After that, just let the fake blood dry and your Halloween photo booth backdrop is done!
