Make your own leaf wedding confetti

 

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!

The choose your cutting implements!  We have used some small hand punches:

Then it is simply a case of cutting out the shapes!

For the finishing touch, pour your confetti into our eco-friendly confetti cones, made from tree-free lokta paper!  The leaf confetti below was not cut but just scrunched leaves to great effect!

    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
