DIY $5 Seamless Background


I have been using this seamless background for almost a year and it has worked out perfectly for taking pictures of food! You can still put a wood board down, change the color background, and it folds up for easy storage.

Let get started!

You will need:

  • Foam Core board (Office-max/depot)
  • Clamp (Home Depot)
  • X-acto Knife (Craft Store)
  • Sharpie (Craft Store)
  • Poster Board (Craft Store)


First Cut the foam board to these measurements:


Now, when you cut the middle only cut through half of the board. This will make it so that it can fold up into the shape.

Next just clamp a piece of poster board to it and your ready!

Here is a picture it took with this background:
