Crafty Confetti Made Easy

8 Jun

After my previous post I wanted to offer another quick alternative to DIY confetti – DIFM confetti (‘Do It For Me’ confetti!)

I am a big champion of Etsy, as it brings individuals and small business to a global audience, and really showcases crafty talent at it’s best in a way no other site does. So, if you want the look of homemade confetti, but don’t have the time or patience, let someone else do the hard work for you. Here are my top picks from Etsy…

* Confetti paper hearts by bookishengland

These lovely hearts are cut from old Mills & Boon novels, which is a very romantic touch! This is a seller from Brighton, so postage for UK residents is just 80p (50p for any additional items.) You get approximately 200 hearts per pack, and it costs £5.00Confetti paper hearts

* Personalised paper heart confetti – pure white by mommyholly

Get some lovely heart shaped confetti, this time with your initials printed on each. You get 45 hearts per pack, but get in touch and she says she can make them in any colour, and can make as many as you want. They cost just 91p per pack. As they come from Canada shipping to the UK is £1.97, and 16p for each additional item. Bargain!

* 1,000 Real Violas, dried wedding flower confetti by pleasanthedges

Breaking away from the heart theme, this is a really beautiful bunch of confetti. The dried violas make a fantastic alternative to the traditional style of confetti, and would work beautifully with a purple themed wedding. The pack costs £93.97, with postage an additional £7.52

* 100 Vintage Atlas and Map Bird Paper Punches by dreamingofpaper

These are lovely little birdies cut out from maps and atlases, and would be great if you and your parter are known for your travels, or are heading on a travelling adventure for your honeymoon. Why not have them thrown over you as you head on your merry way in the evening, with something more traditional for after the service? The pack of 100 costs £1.41. No shipping costs are listed for the UK, but maybe get in touch with the seller and they can sort something out for you

* Birdseed Tossing Bags with Hand Sewn on Rustic Tags by KOtwo

Now, this is one of my favourites! It is such a fantastic idea, I don’t know why I have never seen this before! This is not only fun, but feeds the birds and is eco-friendly, as it leaves no mess as all the birds have a delicious meal. If you are after something a little different and alternative, this is definitely they way to go. It costs £62.11 for 50 bags, which will be enough for 100 people as each pouch can be shared between two. Postage to the UK costs £9.60

* 200 Cranberry, Cream & Blueberry Stars Confetti by DanisWeddingPretties

These are cute and, I think, slightly kitsch. They are a lovely alternative to traditional candy coloured confetti. A pack of 200 costs just £1.72, with an additional £1.53 for postage to the UK
