Have you ever met a person who doesn’t like confetti? I can’t think of a single person. Sure, it’s messy. But, it represents so much fun and colour and happiness. More than makes up for the 5 minutes, you need to spend clearing it up. That’s the spirit with which we made these Confetti Napkin Rings. They were for a small dinner, where we wanted to add some festivity & brightness to the table. And, this was our subtle way of doing that. Here’s how to make them.
Time: 5 minutes prep time. 5 minutes execution & 30 minutes to dry
- Thin plastic or thick paper
- Wire Ribbon / Thin wire
- Mod Podge
- Double Sided Tape/Glue
- Confetti (we cut up scrap paper to make it in 5 minutes)
Steps to make confetti napkin rings:
- Cut two strips of plastic – 1 inch wide and 7 inches long. Flatten them out, and stick double sided tape in the centre of one of them.
- Paste wire ribbon in the centre of this tape & paste the second strip of plastic over it. Cut off the excess wire and plastic, you only need about 6 inches to make the ring.
- Lightly coat the top layer with mod podge or glue and sprinkle confetti over it. Make sure to leave a little bit of the edge from one side. And that none of the edges are sticking out too much.
- Cover the confetti with a single thin layer of mode podge & let it dry.
- Once it has dried out completely, put glue or double sided tape on one side of the strip & paste the other side on it.
Slip it onto your napkins. We used a dark green, that blended well with all the colours.
Things to remember:
- Make sure to spread the plastic out completely when pasting the wire. Avoid air bubble as much as possible.
- Don’t use too much mode lodge or it would clear out completely. We used the glossy finish one, to give the ring some shine.
- Make sure the wire is covered completely with confetti.
- You can add another layer of confetti, if it’s too thin or if the colours aren’t blending.
