DIY // HOW TO MAKE DIY CONFETTI STICKS

diy-confetti-stix

No matter what the theme is at your next bash, these colorful straws will make perfect party favors! Your guests will leave with sparkly reminders of all the fun they had. Or if you want these sticks all to yourself, set them up in a cute display anywhere in your house! There are plenty of options with this Confetti Sticks project by our exclusive DIY contributor, Jessica of The Confetti Bar. Here’s what Jessica has to say about the project:

“Looking for a fun and easy way to add a little color and sparkle to your life? These DIY Confetti Sticks are sure to do the trick! You can even customize the colors to match any theme or style. If you ever want to use any of the confetti, simply cut open the straw! Each straw holds just about the perfect amount for filling an envelope or two, so why not write a friend a sweet note and add some confetti? It’s sure to brighten anyone’s day!”

2. Fill up the open end of the straw with confetti. Depending on the size straw you are using, just make sure the confetti pieces can fit!

Ta-da! It’s that easy! You can fill up a glass vase to display your sticks, or even wrap some up with ribbon if you want to give it as a gift!

    This idea is so wonderful, would be great for a fairy princess party, or you could even fill them up with sprinkles and use them at a cupcake or cookie decorating party.

    These are a really fun idea! I think they would make great non-candy Valentines, too.
    p.s. I love your outfit and all you’ve got goin’ on. The sweater is adorable, your sparkly makeup is pretty, and your pastel sparkle nails are super cute!!

    Love this idea, it would be great for favors at a wedding or even to give to guests to send the couple off at the end of the night!

    I would just like to say how pretty you look in all the pictures. Also, I think the confetti would be a great thing to throw on a bad day.

    What a cute idea! I can see this being a fun craft for a girls birthday party. Also, love the nails! What color is that and did you use a glitter polish towards the bottom?

  16. Abby August 1, 2014 at 8:45 pm #

    Hi! I absolutely LOVE your sweater! I was wondering if you remember where you purchased it from? I know it was a while ago, but I have been searching for this exact sweater for some time, and would really appreciate the brand! Thank you so so much!

  17. Jasmin August 30, 2014 at 7:35 pm #

    Where can I find these straws?

  18. CTY September 5, 2014 at 9:48 pm #

    How cute–so many applications! These would be great filled with birdseed for weddings. Or filled with scented foot bath salts & soap confetti. 1/2 Straws filled with flavored coarse colored sugars for tea or flavored creamer for hot cocoa.
