Happy Monday guys! I am so so so excited to be kicking off the week with a beautiful confetti DIY! Shropshire Petals are back and we’re showing you just how many things you can do with confetti (as well as throwing it of course!) In case you missed it we’ve already shared how you can make your own temporary tattoos with the natural petals and made some free printable confetti cones for holding your confetti and today we’re all about the floral confetti ice bucket!

I’ve seen these ice buckets done a couple of times with fresh fruit and knew they would look absolutely amazing with Shropshire petals natural confetti! Seriously guys, chilling wine and champagne never looked so good! Let’s get cracking on how we made it shall we?

YOU WILL NEED:

Natural confetti in different colours // 1 large bucket // 1 smaller bucket (it needs to fit inside the large bucket but also be big enough to hold a bottle) // stones //

STEP 1:

Take your large bucket and fill it with 2-3 inches of water then pop in the freezer and allow to freeze.

STEP 2:

Next, place the smaller inside that bucket and weigh it down with stones to ensure it doesn’t float when we add in the extra water!

STEP 3:

Add water to the half of the bucket and pack it full with your natural confetti! Then allow this to freeze. This will create the first ring of flowers.

STEP 4:

Once the previous section has frozen, fill the remaining space with water and pack full with confetti, you really want to try and pack it very tightly to get the best effect! Then freeze again and leave overnight.

Ever thought that confetti was just for throwing? Well what a mistake that is my friend because let me tell you, natural flower confetti makes for the most amazing temporary tattoos! Don’t you just agree these would look awesome at a festival wedding?! You could add the temp tatts to your bridesmaids, yourself or even set up a little flower tattoo station for your guests to help themselves! Here’s what you’ll need to get the look:

Natural flower confetti (We highly recommend Shropshire Petals because they’re confetti is so beaut and super colourful!) // Eyelash glue // A few heavy books (for flattening the petals) // Hairspray //

STEP 1:

Pop your petals within the heavy books and allow them to flatten, I left for mine for 3 – 4 hours which was plenty of time!

STEP 2:

Take your eyelash glue and apply it to the back of one of the petals then adhere it to your skin. I decided to create flower shapes by positioning 5 petals together! I’ve also read a couple of tutorials online that said you can use vaseline to stick the petals to yourself but this just wasn’t working for me at all, they kept falling off and you obviously want them to last all day on your wedding!

But where do you start? There are so many beautiful colours and options out there and which look best together? Well the good news is we’ve got your back and we’ve teamed up with Shropshire Petals to create the ultimate guide for the perfect natural confetti colour.
