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.

    love it! will be great if you know any shops that sell/ship to the UK when you post those lovely things.
    I’m just not sure how it works, there’s no mechanism to make it pop?

    Just so you know, I’m counting this as glitter. Big glitter, but glitter nonetheless. (wink face)

    What a great idea! I think we’ll use this at our little Oscar party this weekend. We’ve been making confetti out of old Mylar balloons – it’s nice and shiny and brightly colored.

    I work in a garden. Please, for the love of all that is good and holy, do not throw non-biodegradable confetti outside. I got to spend a lot of time picking up little pieces of shiny colored plastic confetti this summer.
