crepe paper confetti

When the Easter egg piñata I made this week is destroyed on Sunday afternoon, a whole lot of candy and a few bits of homemade crepe paper confetti will fall from the sky. I know the kids will be too busy scrambling for the candy to care about the confetti, but I’ll enjoy it. And I snapped a few pictures of it so you can enjoy it too.

The paper is actually just crepe paper streamers, and the circles were cut out with a 3/4″ punch. I folded the paper and punched four layers at a time.

I’m sure the confetti doesn’t look as lovely now that it’s stuffed inside the piñata with the Laffy Taffy, Nerds, and Starburst… but it was fun to make!

  1. Confetti makes everything better.

  2. melanie: I used to think I didn’t really like confetti, but it turns out I just don’t really care for that metallic, mass-produced stuff.

  3. Such a good idea! So much safer than small confetti/glitter! We know of a 5 year old boy whose retina detached and he’s blind in one eye after confetti from a piñata got in his eye!

  4. bitzels: Wow – that’s awful! That metallic confetti doesn’t appeal to me much, and this is another good reason to stick with paper confetti.
