Diy confetti drop

Few things say party like confetti. Those little scraps deliver a big "wow" when released at just the right moment. Timing the confetti drop for an optimal effect is key. A confetti drop traditionally signals the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve, but a confetti rose petal drop can add a gracious and elegant touch to a wedding. A colourful and festive confetti drop at a birthday party will fascinate children of all ages.

Cut tissue paper into small pieces of confetti and gather rose petals.

Screw in cup hooks approximately 6 feet apart on the ceiling of a room.

Attach loops of yarn to the corner edges of the cloth net with the needle and thread.

Attach the rope to the net at the middle of one long edge with the needle and thread.

Hang the net from the ceiling hammock-style, by placing the yarn loops over the cup hooks.

Fill the hammock with confetti, rose petals, glitter and balloons.

Pull the rope to release the confetti at the appropriate moment.
