Confetti Triangle Invitations

by Joke Vande Gaer

Living in China, I come across some of the most amazing packaging. I’ve been seeing a lot of mini triangle shaped packaging lately: milk, black beans, tea, seaweed…It inspired me to create these triangle confetti invitations.

Confetti Party Hats DIY

Today, I’m blending two of my favorite things: party hats and confetti! These festive hats are easy to make, super colorful, and a definite crowd pleaser. It’s hard not to smile when there’s a party happening on your head! I got the idea for this technique from Joke’s present wrapping trick. It couldn’t be easier. Just glue and dip!

DIY Confetti Throwers

Here is a fun project inspired by some of the party supplies I found in France. The idea is pretty simple. You fill up a tube with confetti and when you are ready to throw the confetti you take off the lid and throw the confetti. The motion of your arm propels all the little confettis into the air. Of course you could buy confetti pre-made but our pretty confetti only took a little time to make and you can custom tailor the colors to your event. These look so nice when they are done that they are easy to incorporate into your party or wedding decor. Find the instructions and sources below.

Materials Needed: Tissue Paper, Plastic Tubes, Scissors

Step 1: To make the confetti cut strips into the folds of tissue paper then cut through the strips to make little square confettis. Make sure the size of your confetti is small enough to fit in your tubes.
Step 2: Put the confetti in the clear tubes and cap the lid so they are ready for your guests.

DIY Confetti Tablecloth

by Jenny Batt

I have confetti on the brain.  I can’t help it. It is just so fun and makes me smile. Another one of my favorite things? Vintage tablecloths. I had a great thrift store that used to get the best and brightest mid-century styles, but I think someone else caught on and now it’s all dried up. I still keep checking weekly, but for now I will just settle on making my own.  I have two boys, so tablecloths are both heaven sent and a necessity.  Now, since I can buy plain white tablecloths, my supply will be unlimited.  Let the fun begin!

You will need: a tablecloth (Target has nice thick white ones), craft paint, circle punch, cardstock, freezer paper, tape and a paint brush.

Wash and dry your tablecloth. While you are doing this, clear a space larger than the size of the tablecloth on a hard floor and tape lengths of freezer paper shiny side up. Overlap the edges a little. I popped my tablecloth right from the dryer down, eliminating any ironing. Win! Tape each corner of the tablecloth down, no need to be perfect,  it just needs to stay put while painting.

Cut your cardstock into four pieces. Punch the center out of each card with your circle punch, I used a 2.75 inch punch.  Make a bunch of these, you will go through about 4 for each color, depending on how careful you are.

Start painting, one color at a time.  I used a different plate for each color. For each dot, place your template down and hold with one hand.  Take your brush and work from the paper, like a stencil and paint your dot.  It’s pretty fast, but be careful not to get the brush under the dot.  If anything goes wonky, just carefully paint the edge smooth, and start with a new card, easy peasy.  Go to town and think “scattered” like confetti!

I had to add more colors after dinner time.  This really goes fast, and is an easy way to update an existing tablecloth.  I plan on making more confetti tablecloths from home decor fabric and old floral ones that need some love.

Just add cake and turn every day into a celebration.
