Wedding DIY: Confetti & Glitter Jar Place Settings
Who doesn’t love splashing a little colour into their wedding day? I for one am a huge fan of colour, especially when it comes to little pieces of confetti AND glitter! I think there’s something so fun and fresh about these place settings and I’m here to tell you that they are SO EASY to make too! I didn’t have any confetti to hand either so I just used pieces of card & a hole punch! Here’s how to make them…
You will need:
♥ Card ♥ Glue ♥ Jars ♥ Hole Punch ♥ Flowers of your choice ♥ BBQ Skewers ♥ Glitter ♥ Scissors
Step 1: Grab all of the colours of your card, cut them into strips and then start punching hundreds of holes in them!
Step 2: Once you’ve finished punching holes, tip all of the ‘confetti’ onto a plate and sprinkle on your glitter.
Step 3: Better put down some old news paper or magazine for this step, it’s about the get messy baby! Coat the bottom half of your jar with glue then quickly continue onto the next step!
Step 4: Pick up a hand full of confetti and start to sprinkle it over the jar so it sticks to the glue, continue to do this until all areas covered in glue are in colourful goodness!
Step 5: Fill your jars half way with water and pop in your flowers!
Step 6: Cut out a small piece of card (about 3 or 4 inches) and fold it over your BBQ skewer.
Step 7: Glue the two sides of the card together, write on the names of your guests and then cut off the corners into a flag shape.
Step 8: Place in the jars and voila! Beautiful and simple right? What do you think?
Why are DIY Confetti and Glitter Jar Place Settings a Good Choice For Your Wedding
When it comes to wedding planning, there are countless details to consider. One of the most important aspects of any wedding reception is the table settings, as they set the tone for the entire event. Confetti and glitter jar place settings are a great choice for any wedding for a number of reasons.
Firstly, confetti and glitter jar place settings are incredibly versatile. They can be customized to fit any wedding theme or color scheme. Whether you are planning a rustic outdoor wedding or a glamorous ballroom affair, confetti and glitter jars can be adapted to suit your needs. You can choose from a variety of different colors and styles to create a unique and personalized look that is sure to impress your guests.
Confetti and Glitter Jar Place Settings are Cost-effective
Secondly, confetti and glitter jar place settings are a cost-effective way to add some sparkle to your reception. Traditional floral centerpieces can be quite expensive, but glitter jars can be made for a fraction of the cost. You can easily create them yourself using mason jars, glitter, and confetti, or you can purchase them pre-made from a variety of different vendors. Either way, you will save money without sacrificing style.
They are Fun and Playful
Thirdly, confetti and glitter jar place settings are a fun and playful addition to any wedding. They add a touch of whimsy to the reception and can help to break the ice between guests who may not know each other very well. The confetti and glitter can also be used as a unique alternative to traditional rice or flower petals for the wedding exit.
They are Eco-friendly
Lastly, confetti and glitter jar place settings are an eco-friendly option for couples who are looking to reduce their carbon footprint. Unlike traditional floral centerpieces, which can be wasteful and require a lot of resources to produce, confetti and glitter jars can be reused or recycled after the wedding is over. They are also a great way to repurpose old mason jars or other household items that might otherwise go to waste.
In conclusion, confetti and glitter jar place settings are a great choice for any wedding. They are versatile, cost-effective, playful, and eco-friendly, making them the perfect addition to any reception. Whether you are planning a large, formal event or a small, intimate gathering, confetti and glitter jars are sure to add some sparkle and shine to your special day.
