I have seen many different types of back drops over the years but have noticed that not many of them are easily put together or transported. I did a lot of research and found the best choice for my budget was PVC pipe.

It’s easily put together, easily transported (I keep mine in a Christmas tree bag with wheels) and fairly inexpensive to make. All that’s needed is PVC  and a saw. This seemed the most economical at the time and although I might design it a bit differently, after 7 years I would still use PVC.

Directions:

Decide what size you would like (mine is 8ftx6ft) Remember after adding elbows and joints, this will increase the size of your back drop.

So, if you want a back drop 8ft by 6ft, subtract about 6 inches from the length and height (mine was too tall and I couldn’t reach the top and had to reduce the size by re-cutting the pvc- if you’re a little “vertically challenged” as I am, keep this in mind),

Assuming you are making a your backdrop 8 feet wide by 6 feet high this is what you will need:

  • 6 pieces of pvc-3 ½ ft long (these are for the top and bottom and center brace-optional)
  • 6 pieces of pvc-2ft 9inches long (two sides and middle brace-required)
  • 4 pieces of pvc 1 ft long (feet)
  • 8-T connectors
  • 2-4 way connectors
  • 2-L connectors
  • 3-2 inch pieces of pvc to attach feet

Cut pvc to desired length and put together as shown in diagram. This takes some practice and I initially color coded mine to make it easier to assemble. After practice, it will only take about 5 minutes to assemble. I slip shear curtains on mine and added a drape across the top. I also hang my sign on the top.

Note*When positioned against the wall, I add only two feet and for safety use duct tape to fasten to wall. When not against the wall, I use all four feet and for safety duct tape to floor.

I also added two pieces of plastic dowel to the top of my backdrop to drape swag.
