Here at Wildflower Favours we are all about the environment, recycling and nature.  So why not do a bit of nature recycling and make your own leaf wedding confetti from the vast array of leaves that are everywhere!  It will save you money, just costing a bit of time – but it will be fun!

First of all – find your leaves and gather them!

We also gathered some fluffy seeds from the Wild Clematis in the garden as a little extra something!  Wild Clematis is also known as Old Man’s Beard, which is easy to see why – as the seed heads get more advanced they also get fluffier!

    1. Hi Jane, I would have thought so but I am not sure. They are widely available online in loads of craft shops and on Ebay so if you can’t find a supplier in Australia there is bound to be someone who ships there. Sorry not to be more helpful! Teresa

      1. Oh thanks, Teresa. Not being a ‘crafty’ person, I didn’t think of that, even though it’s pretty obvious. You have actually been very helpful. Jane

  1. Hello
    For how long will the leaves retain their colour?
    Can you offer any advice on how to keep the colours bright for the longest time?
    Thanks in advance.
    Linda

    1. Hi Linda

      I have to confess I haven’t kept them to test that. I would imagine that as long as you keep them out of light they should keep their colour. Hope that works!
