Handmade Confetti and DIY Confetti Throwers

Sometimes store bought confetti doesn’t come in the right colors for the party we are having, in that case we make our own handmade confetti. It is really easy to make, I just throw on a movie while I cut. For this project I used a trick I learned in Paris where you just fill a plastic tube with confetti and hand them out to all your guests. With just a flick of the wrist the confetti propels out of the tube and goes everywhere. Perfect for surprise parties or weddings! The tissue paper at Paper Mart has always been my favorite. It comes in the best colors and is so affordable.

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.
