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 //
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!
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!
Continue adding petals until you’re happy with the design and pattern you’ve created.
Finally spray the flowers with a little hairspray to give them a little extra stick! I can assure you that these will stay on REALLY WELL! I got changed with these flowers still stuck to me and not one petal fell off while the clothes were moving over them.
In case you’re wondering which petals I used from Shropshire Petals to create this look it was sunshine kisses, candy floss and frosted blue but they have a huge selection over there that you could pick to match the colour scheme of your wedding or just go wild with a bunch of different colours!!
