DIY Confetti – Dried Rose Petals

8 Jun

Making your own confetti is a cheaper way to achieve a more natural feel. It can be pricey to buy real dried petals as confetti, but here is a step by step way to dry you own rose petals at home!

Instructions

Things You’ll Need:

  • Roses
  • Scissors
  • Cardboard box
  • Plastic bags
  1. Cut the stems short, leaving an inch or two attached to the flower.
  2. Hold the rose in one hand and use your other hand to gently snap the stem off the flower in one swift motion, as if you were breaking a stick in half. The head of the rose should come off easily.
  3. Shake the flower gently over a bin to discard tiny seeds.
  4. Loosen all the petals gently from each other and let them fall into cardboard box. Mix the petals as you go, if you are using more than one colour.
  5. Make dried petal confetti a few days prior to use and store it in the cardboard box. Transfer to plastic bags on the day of the event. Make fresh petal confetti the same day you will use it and store it in plastic bags until needed
