For a “Shine Bright Like a Diamond” bridal shower, we created a geometric diamond backdrop from a few pieces of scrapbooking paper and painters tape. Set the stage for a glittering celebration with this sparkly DIY.

DIY Geometric Diamond Backdrop

Step 1: Use yardstick and pencil to draw a line diagonally across your paper, from point to point.

Step 4: Cut each of those halves in half again.

Step 5: Repeat for the rest of your paper. One piece of paper should make 8 pieces.

Step 6: Play with your triangle pieces and rearrange your design until you like it, then tape it to the wall using painters tape, working from the bottom to the top.
