Confetti is a favourite tradition held by many today at various events, especially weddings. Over the years we’ve seen it being made out of rice, petals, paper or plastic. But for most, some of these options are either too costly, too much of a hassle to clean or just way too common. So when Sunset CT Projects came across this really awesome DIY environmentally friendly confetti idea, we definitely decided that sharing it with all our readers would be the best thing to do!

This is the perfect decor item for any event, especially weddings. The fact that it’s uncommon, affordable and simply beautiful makes it a great confetti idea. Every wedding is special, but with these autumn leaves confetti, your wedding will have a touch of golden sun kisses.
