Over the weekend I stumbled upon my wedding video and turned it on for my kids. It was so much fun to revisit, but so cringey to see how outdated many of the trends are now! I have loved seeing some of the recent wedding trends for spring, including the celestial elements (moons, stars, astrological signs, iridescent touches) that many brides are incorporating! It’s such a gorgeous way to make the special day your own, and it inspired me to make these sweet celestial wedding confetti toss tubes, perfect for adding a lovely finishing touch to the big day. We added a tag with a favorite Coldplay lyric “Look at the stars, look how they shine for you” to tie the sentiment in perfectly. Here’s how to make confetti toss tubes!
- Darice Plastic Bead Storage Tubes with Stopper
- Multi-Color Darice Tissue Paper
- Darice Metallic Hearts and Stars Glitter
- Star Sequins
- Star Paper Punch
- Hole Punch
- Red Heart Super Saver Grey Yarn
- Glitzy Glitter Cardstock
- Patterned Cardstock
- Printable Tags
Step 1. Make your confetti. Cut tissue into small squares, cut glitter cardstock into squares and mix with star-shaped confetti and star shaped glitter.
Step 2. Fill tubes with confetti mix and replace the lids.
Step 3. Print your tags (get the free printable here). We decided to add some extra sparkle by adding gold foil to the tag, which is super easy using a basic laminator. You can learn more about that process here. Then cut out the tag and layer on patterned cardstock, if desired. Punch a hole in one of the corners.
Step 4. Attach tags using string.
Aren’t they fun? I love this extra touch, with subtle celestial elements. They would blend in perfectly to a fully themed wedding or as a gorgeous goodbye to a more traditional affair.
What are your favorite diy wedding trends this year? We’d love to hear what has caught your eye!
