Everyone loves throwing confetti, but no one likes cleaning it up, which is why so many event venues ban it. Well, here’s a different kind of confetti. It’s made of leaves, so it’s eco-friendly and biodegradable. When you use it outdoors, it just blows away and disintegrates like other foliage. Now that’s worth celebrating.
What you’ll need:
1. Gather your leaves. Some leaves work better than others. Select hearty leaves that will not tear easily. Also, collect leaves with different shades of green so the confetti will be more colorful.
2. Use a hole punch on the leaves to make the confetti.
3. If you have access to leaves from lemon trees, be sure to include them in your confetti mix. The citrus scent from the leaves is heavenly.
