Since the gift-giving season is almost here we wanted to share these adorable DIY Confetti Bows made by Marisa from Omiyage. You might remember her from the cutest DIY Washi Tape Popsicle Cards this summer. I love the look of these bows and how different you could make them by mixing and matching washi tape and confetti colors. I want to try and make modern ones with black and white polka dot washi tape with black, white, and neon pink confetti.

DIY Confetti Bows
I have a little secret to share – I’m in the midst of a sequin love affair.Sequin trim makes for some seriously sparkly gifts when used in place of ribbon. But, the thing about working with sequin trim is, it likes to shed. But rather than get frustrated, I got creative with the loose sequins! So here’s the scoop on how to make adorable confetti bows – one of a kind gift toppers which will look amazing under the tree or on top of the birthday present pile!
Don’t feel limited to sequins, you could really fill these cuties with any lightweight & colourful material you’d like. Tissue confetti or colourful sprinkles would be really sweet too!
I must admit, I’m kind of a big fan of these bows – they’re fast to make but are ever so cute! I’ve paired them here with some DIY sequin gift wrap, but I think they’d be just as cute combined with washi tape ribbon strips.
Once desired amount of confetti is in the bag, seal the open end with another folded over strip of washi tape.
To turn your confetti-filled bag into a bow, first determine the centre of the bag. Holding the centre, shake the confetti towards the two ends. You want there to be approximately the same amount of confetti on each side of your bow. Pinch the centre of the bag between your fingers. With the other hand, wrap a strip of washi tape around the centre of the bow. Adjust the two sides of the bow until you are satisfied with the appearance.
