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!

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 //
Flower Tattoos Temporary Festival Wedding Inspiration Ideas How to DIY confetti shropshire petals glastonbury style-6Flower Tattoos Temporary Festival Wedding Inspiration Ideas How to DIY confetti shropshire petals glastonbury style-7

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!

Anyway when it came to getting my nails done for the festival Gemma came up with the idea of creating a henna type effect on my nails and I was SO GAME!!

Us gals had already bought white henna tattoos for the festival so creating a design on my nails that matched the henna was a perfect idea and I love the way they turned out! Here’s how you can recreate the look:

STEP 3:

Paint the section of the stencil that you want to use with the while polish, then using the scrape tool, scrape off any excess polish so that the white has filled in the gaps of the stencil.

STEP 4:

Using your MoYou stamp pick up the design using a rolling motion then stamp it straight onto the nail. Repeat across all nails.
