How to enable backups after I created a droplet?

Or do I need to create a snapshot, spin up a new droplet with backups enabled and restore the snapshot?

Unfortunately, the automatic backup feature can only be enabled when a droplet is first spun up. So like you guessed, the way to do this is to create a snapshot and spin up a new droplet with backups enabled based on that snapshot.
