If you want to upgrade your photography skills, it may be time to look into purchasing an entry level DSLR camera like THIS one. Having a tripod on hand also helps, when you are trying to get your kids arranged in the photo and snap before they move! 

All of these springtime photo backgrounds can be done in less than 20 minutes, for under 20 bucks. So let’s get started!

Looking for cheap and easy DIY Springtime photo backgrounds this Easter? Here are some great ideas that mostly involve things you already have laying around your house!

1) Wrapping Paper or Fabric

It doesn’t get much easier than this. You can actually get some cute wrapping paper at the Dollar Tree. All you have to do is tape it to the wall and snap! This is one of my favorite DIY springtime photo backgrounds. The DIY Mommy shows you how she does it HERE.

4) Pennant Banners

Pennant banners aren’t just a home office decoration, ladies. They also make cute springtime photo backgrounds. I made this simple one from springtime scrapbook papers:

Simply cut triangles out of scrapbook paper, fabric, card stock, or wrapping paper. Hole punch the top corners, and string them with some yarn or twine. Tape it to the wall, and voila!

5) Ribbon and Lace

I’m not a huge fan of the pink, but a pastel variety would be more my style. You can make this in about 15 minutes. Check out the tutorial HERE.

6) Springtime Flowers

This one seems like a lot, but it isn’t as difficult as you might think. And it really looks amazing! The originators used it for a New Year’s Eve party backdrop, but it is definitely springy.
