eye see you.

Current obsession: making my own confetti! Here’s a quick recipe for a Halloween-inspired mix.

Gather:

  • paper in oranges and black – I use 65 lb paper
  • sequins – I chose a variety pack of purple shapes.
  • googly eyes – I also found little bat stickers with googly eyes in my sticker stash.
  • sparkly confetti – Whenever I see these little vials at Target I grab my favorites. This time, gold stars and hexagons.
  • a container for your finished confetti mix – Also Target!
  • twine

First, shred your paper using a super magical crafter tool: a cross-cut paper shredder! (Seriously though, I told my Hubby it’s the crafting shredder…) Add sequins, gold sparkle, google eyes…and whatever else you want to add (except glitter – Don’t do it!!). Mix.

Make sure all your sequins are separated; they tend to stick to each other. And remove any paper chunks from the mix.

Package up the confetti. I made sure some googly eyes made it to the very top of my containers. O_O I added the bat friends to the lids and finished off by tying twine around the necks of the containers.

Local markets are my kind of tourist attraction. Crafternoons are my favorite. Good food makes me dance.
