How to make confetti cones
You can fill your cones with confetti made of shredded paper or tiny paper circles. (confetti image by Gunsel Yildirim from Fotolia.com)

Wedding guests often throw confetti when the couple walks down the aisle after their marriage ceremony or when they leave to go to the honeymoon or wedding reception. Placing the confetti in a large basket for everyone to grab can be messy and does not ensure that everyone gets the chance to join in the festivities. You can make confetti wedding cones to hold a specified amount of confetti for each guest and customise the cones match the theme of the wedding.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Select your preferred paper colour or design. Trace a 6-inch circle onto a sheet of paper.

  2. 2

    Cut out the circle from the paper. Fold the circle in half and then in half again. Open up the circle to see the four folded triangles. Cut out one of the triangles from the circle.

  3. 3

    Bring the two cut edges of the circle together to create a cone shape. Glue the cone along the outer edge to retain its shape.

  4. 4

    Allow the glue to dry completely. Fill the cone with dried rose petals or confetti.

  5. 5

    Tie a colourful ribbon around the cone or glue on embellishments to personalise it.

Tips and warnings

  • Wrap the confetti cones in tissue paper to hold the contents inside. Tie the top with thin ribbon and hand them out to the guests before they walk in or place them in the guests' seats.
