DIY Wedding Wednesday: Ceremony Confetti Cones

diy-ceremony-confetti-cones

If I had to pick a favorite design approach it would be the blending of the new and the old. I love putting fresh twists on classics. And given how far back the tradition of the wedding ceremony goes, there’s plenty of opportunity to get creative. Today I’m playing around with updating the lovely sentiment of the rice toss, by a simple swap for preserved petals and a focus on presentation. Making the switch from rice to petal and individually packaging the petals in embellished clear acetate cones, gives guests a pretty and functional way of celebrating a bride and groom as they take their first steps as husband and wife. Here’s the easy DIY breakdown on how to create these pretties.

The Supplies

The Simple Three Step How To 

diy confetti cones - step by step

Step 1: Stuff your cone with the petals. Using whatever pointy ended object you have lying around (I used a paint brush) help guide your petals down the cone. This ensures they fill through to its narrow bottom. Use just enough petals to fill up the cone while still keeping a loose finish.

Step 2: Apply self-adhesive jewel stickers. For precise placement use a pair of tweezers. Nothing fancy required. Your everyday eyebrow tweezers will do!

Step 3: Add your ribbon. For easy bow tying cut more ribbon than you need and then snip to achieve the final desired length.

The Pretty End Result
