These DIY product photo backdrop ideas for sellers will help you showcase your holiday items.
Makers and sellers are gearing up for the biggest shopping season of the year! No matter how amazing your handcrafted product is, the photos are what will sell it. Here are four inexpensive and easy to find items from Fairfield World that are perfect for product photography.
The easiest way to create a winter wonderland is with Fluffy Snow. I love Fluffy Snow because it comes in a roll that is easy to set up and then roll back up again, so you can keep it safe between photo shoots. I also love how bright and white it is, so you can really highlight what you are selling.
A solid white background for product photography has long been the gold standard. I like to use Project Fleece to create a soft background that always looks white and dreamy. To create this backdrop, I set a table near the wall and leaned a sheet of foam board against the wall. I unrolled a small pack of Poly-Fil Project Fleece Batting and covered the table and foam board with it, using clothespins to hold the batting in place. As you can see in the photo above, the batting creates a seamless backdrop for my handmade wands. When I’m done, all I have to do is roll the batting back up, and it hardly takes up any space!
To photograph smaller items, like handmade jewelry and magnets, you can create an interesting backdrop with Poly-Pellets. Available in a variety of sizes, most sellers will only need a little bag to create eye-catching photo backdrops. I poured mine on a white platter to take the photo above, but you could experiment with a colored base of even lights under the pellets to create a variety of unique photo backgrounds. The pellets cradle your home made products, so they are perfect for rounded items, like pendants and bracelets, that might slide around on a flat, even surface.
Poly-Fil Mini Sized Micro Beads are infinitely cute and look like teeny tiny snowballs! They create the perfect snowy backdrop for paper crafts and light items. I poured just enough to cover the base of a white platter, and then I set my free printable tags on top of the Micro Beads for my photographs. These itty bitty beads will help showcase your handmade cards, bookmarks, rings, and other delicate items.
