Supply List for DIY Confetti Globe:
. . . an Oh Deer Baby Shower Party Favor

1. Confetti from Festive Fetti
2. Deer Gift Tag Set from Festive Fetti
3. Mason Jars (these were a 3 pack at Target in the dollar section)
4. Mini Plastic Deers from Treasured Florals (I used a string of mini pearls for a necklace)
5. Mini Bottlebrush Trees (these were from Peachy Cheap)
6. Hot Glue Gun
7. Glue for the label (I used my Xyron Creative Station adhesive - but a glue stick works too)

Now, let's start crafting to celebrate the sweet little one with these cute and easy party favors

Simply hot glue in the deer and bottlebrush tree to the inside base of the glass jar. Then sprinkle in some confetti (this is my pink ombre confetti mix which is perfect for girl baby showers). The deer labels are available in my shop and I added adhesive to the back side and it fit perfectly atop the jar lid. Wouldn't these confetti globes look super sweet set out at each place setting for the guests?

DIY Confetti Ornaments for Place Cards and Favors

When it comes to holidays and gift giving, I love being able to create something that can serve as a fun place card at the table setting, but also a take-home favor (holiday gift) for the guests.

These DIY Confetti Ornaments are not only festive when filled with my Festive Fetti in your favorite color combo, but they can be personalized with stickers and hand-writing the guests name on in permanent marker or paint pen. The clear ornaments can be found at local craft shops and even in the Target dollar spot during the holiday season.

I loved how Susan of Shop Sugar Parties LA took the idea from my Instagram post and re-created it with my holiday Festive Fetti tucked inside for a Santa-saurus ornament for her son's classroom tree.

And, don't forget - the adults can have their very own Confetti Ornaments too.

Simply choose your favorite Festive Fetti confetti mix that matches your holiday party, bridal shower, wedding, even baby shower, or any other party you have planned - add in the confetti and personalize with the guests name. It's a party favor and gift they will treasure. A fun presentation idea is to place the ornament on top of their drinking glass or on the napkin draped over their plate.

Celebrate your next holiday party, bridal shower, wedding or baby shower with a DIY Confetti Ornament that your party guests will love.
