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!”

      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.

      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?

      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.
