How to Make an Easy DIY Background + How to Make Hot Cocoa Mix!

That is a rather long title, don’t you think?

Maybe you have made a post about how to make a craft before.Β  Isn’t it sometimes annoying if there is lots of distracting stuff in the background? Look at this picture:

All that stuff in the background doesn’t look too good, am I right?


Read on you can find out an easy solution to this problem!

First, tape a blanket to the floor next to a counter.

Then bring the other side of the blanket up to the counter edge and tape again. Scotch tape and masking tape do not work at all. πŸ˜‰

Then, when you take a picture, there will be a nice background!

Using this background, I will show you how to make easy Hot Cocoa mix with two ( yes, two) ingredients.

You will need:

1. Cocoa Powder

2. Sugar

Pour one cup of sugar into a jar or whatever container you want to use. Use a funnel.

Then pour one half cup of cocoa powder into the same jar.

Mix it up and you have your very own hot cocoa mix! I had to pour it into another bowl and mix it up because I couldn’t mix it up in the jar. Then I funneled it back into the jar.

Now when ever you want hot cocoa you can just heat up a mug of milk,

And spoon in some powder!

I like to add vanilla to my hot cocoa. πŸ™‚

      1. Me, too! Oh, it’s so good! It’s really minty but adds a little more sweetness at the same time. You should try it! πŸ˜€


    1. Awesome! I’m so glad you want to try them. πŸ˜€ Thanks! I kinda got the idea from my aunt who is a photographer; she uses a big white paper to put behind the people she is photographing and It kinda slants down like that. πŸ™‚


      1. Oh, it’s on the chat? Sorry, I didn’t see this. Can you post it again? I’ll leave it on so I don’t miss it (if you stay on the comments won’t disappear)
