DIY Giant Geometric Confetti

What the heck is it about tossing confetti? It’s literally just throwing pieces of teeny tiny paper in the air, but it’s so good. I think it’s the way it flutters down — like it’s kind of weightless for a couple of seconds. I love confetti, but I’m not in a tiny mood these days. I’m in a big mood. So we’re making giant geometric confetti. Let’s party.

Materials

  • tissue paper
  • scissors

Make Time: 10 Minutes

This one is so simple I’m almost ashamed to tell you how to do it. But I’m gonna anyway. Pick a bunch of pretty colors of tissue paper that go together well. Line them up so that the edges are square, and cut them into strips that are about two inches wide.

Once you have your strips, make sure again that the edges are square and start cutting them into triangles. Don’t worry about getting it perfect!

There. Done. Now gather up all of your confetti and throw it as high as you can! Mr. Lovely and I had an absolute ball in the warehouse at CRAFTED, tossing this stuff around. (Isn’t the space amazing? See more of it here. If you haven’t been, you definitely need to go some weekend and check it out!)

So. That’s pretty much all you need for a party. A cute guy and a handful of giant confetti. xoxo

    Love it. The photos are super cute too, Chelsea. This would be fun for a Halloween party…if you just change the colors…or New Year’s Eve!

    Sorry to be a downer, but everyone should be careful, as tissue paper will stain if it gets wet. This could permanently stain furniture, table linens and carpet if it comes in contact with any moisture. Learned this the hard way!

      Good call, Lisa — thanks for the comment! We definitely don’t need an epidemic of stained rugs and couches as a result of confetti parties. Thanks1
