Confetti can be super fun at an event, but many venues have stopped allowing it, due to the environmental impact, not to mention the cleaning.
This do-it-yourself biodegradable leaf confetti is the perfect outside alternative! All you need are leaves and hole punches, and Mother Nature will take care of the outside cleanup for you.
Plastic and paper confetti isn’t environmentally friendly and typically not biodegradable. Confetti rice can be dangerous to birds and other animals. Even some of the more environmentally friendly options, like rose petals or bird seed, need to be cleaned up before they can cause damage in the longterm.
But with leaves from your local trees? You can make all the environmentally friendly confetti your heart desires. Just find the leaves that have fallen, punch out your shapes into a bowl and return the punched leaves back to where you found them so they can continue to decompose naturally.
It’s a great project with the kids too. Imagine all the different shapes you can make and colors you can find naturally on your walks. And don’t forget the fun of having a confetti fight in the yard afterwards, all while knowing Mother Nature approves.
