DIY confetti popper

Make your wedding go with a bang!

You naturally want your wedding day to be extra special. So, if you’re looking for an original idea to make the big day even more memorable, look no further! This wedding confetti popper is a burst of fun for all your guests. It’s guaranteed to get the wedding party going, and everyone can take part in the confetti shower. What’s more, this quirky decorative idea is easy to make yourself. Don’t forget that in order to collect enough plastic containers you’ll have to eat a fair number of ice creams first, but it makes for an excellent upcycling project. We made sleeves for our poppers out of black paper and gold foil and decorated them in glittering metallic colours. You can choose between six shimmering metallics in the edding 1200 range of colour pens. The softly flowing ink in these colour pens makes them ideal for designing on light-coloured paper - and they show up even better on dark paper. Simply remove the cap and get started.
