DIY CONFETTI CONES // Im super excited to share this DIY project with you. I have had a lot of questions and enquiries about making confetti cones (or petal cones) for weddings and events. So since the wedding season is upon us here in New Zealand, I thought what better time to share this wee post on how to make them for your own wedding or celebration.

So gather your friends, wine and chocolate (optional of course) and get busy…

Confetti Cones

Source some confetti or similar from your local or online craft or party supplier. I purchased these pretty coloured ones from Dots n Spots. For weddings you might opt to use rose petals, which can be purchased from your florist, or faux ones from places such as Spotlight.

You will need: pencil, ruler, scissors, double sided tape, and paper. In this tutorial I use A4 120gsm (slightly thicker than standard paper) dark kraft paper. But you can use either A4 or 12 x 12″ paper, as we will trim it down to size. Paper can be sourced from almost anywhere; Spotlight, Warehouse Stationery, online craft stores etc.

We now need to make our A4 sheet of paper a square shape. The paper is 210mm deep, so I’ve ruled a pencil line 210mm across to create my square shape.

Now we can cut along this line to create the square.  I like to make my confetti cones 210mm x 210mm, as this is really nice size.

Once we have the square cut out. I fold over the edge of the paper to the other edge, and flatten the very top of the fold with my finger to create a “point” just like an ice cream cone. Doing this now, will make it easier to create the cone shape later.

Add some double sided tape to the top edge of the paper.

From here I practice my “rolling” of the confetti cone first. I keep one finger on the “point”, and the use the other hand to help roll the paper over. Once Im feeling confident, I’ll peel the double sided tape paper to reveal the sticky side, and begin rolling it into the confetti cone shape.

Please note: the tighter you roll the paper over, the smaller the cone shape

Ta daaa… and just like that you have a confetti cone ready for filling with confetti or rose petals. Enjoy!
