There’s something special about confetti, the colour the shapes, the celebration! I have ben playing around with this DIY project I found here, at Best friends for Frostings, but making a few adjustments.
So I have made three different types of confetti straws today. The first using sequins and tissue confetti shapes, the second using bio-degradable tissue paper and the third using flower petals.
What you need
-Bio-degradable tissue paper
So you staple one end of your straw as close to the end as possible, making sure it’s closed so no confetti will fall out.
Then you pick your colour theme.I went for a fruit salad like thing. Orange,yellow and pink. I am making table confetti first. You can use these ones to decorate your tables for celebrations, because it uses sequins and confetti which isn’t bio-degradable these aren’t suitable for throwing outside.
I got these big circles which are awesome from here, they are too big to put in whole so I have cut them into strips which looks super pretty. If you want to keep them whole, make an envelope like this one, and use that instead.
So we have our cut up circles, so then I added some yellow sequins. I put them all in this little dish so that they get a nice mix when they go into the straw.
I decided to snazz things up with some gold and silver squares, cut into triangles so they fit in nicely. Paired with some gold sequins and your ready to start filling up the straw.
So all you do is fill it up, I’m not going to lie to you, it’s a bit of a mission but the outcome is worth it.
There you have it, just staple the other end, and dip each end in PVA then glitter, to finish it off nicely.
Do the same for petals and bio-degradable tissue paper, which are fine for throwing outside, but always check with using the tissue paper, some places don’t like it!
I used rose petals, lavender buds, and chamomile petals for the petal confetti straws.
So there you have it, it’s pretty fun, plus they look insane as decorations alone. To disperse the confetti either cut the straw in the middle, or if your strong pop the end opens!
