We’ve celebrated all week long with sophisticated New Year’s Eve wedding ideas, and now we are going to send you off for the weekend with a do-it-yourself project; a little homework, if you will! If you are getting married this New Year’s Eve or next, you are in luck because these confetti poppers couldn’t be easier to put together. Wait, did you see the New Year’s Eve wedding station of fun featuring these poppers?! (Go check that out first and then come back!) The lovely ladies at Ashlee Virginia Events are helping to round out the week full of NYE wedding inspiration photographed by Rachel May Photography with DIY instructions for how to make the festive confetti poppers.
From Ashlee Virginia Events:
What gets any better then pink sparkles, confetti, and glitter all wrapped in one? We created little (but powerful) confetti poppers for each guest to use as the clock struck midnight. The burst of confetti not only screams “yay,” it screams “HOORAY!”
Materials You’ll Need:
- Hole punch
- Pink construction paper
- Gold garland
- Black thin point Sharpie marker
- Gold card stock
- Clear plastic cake push pop containers
- Circle craft punch
Making the Confetti
Use the circle craft punch and hole punch to punch holes in the pink construction paper. Cut strands of the gold garland (about 3 inches long). Use the saying: the more the merrier!
Calligraphy “Hooray” and “Yay”
Use the larger circle craft punch to cut a larger circle on the Gold Card Stock. Take the black Sharpie and daintily draw your favorite saying or word.
Take the gold garland and pink circles mix them together and fully stuff them into the plastic containers. Place the lid on top and make sure it snaps in order to secure it. Voila! Now you’ve got your confetti popper!
