10 Colorful Confetti Projects That Rock
We like to think of confetti as glitter’s older, wiser, life-of-the-party cousin. The holidays at Brit HQ may have been all about glitter, but we’re pumped to be ushering in the new year with loads of color, polka dots, and… confetti!
From confetti soap to confetti wrap bracelets, here are 10 DIY projects that celebrate this ridiculously colorful material.
1. Confetti Cones: Simply roll up a bit of craft paper, tape it at the bottom, and fill with confetti. Woot woot!
Confetti BalloonsIf you were in on the October Brit Kit (still available as a one-off in our shop!), you may already be a confetti balloon expert.
Confetti HeadbandLike our New Year’s Eve statement headbands, all you need is a headband, hot glue, and confetti for this colorful look.
4. Confetti Wine: Looking for a way to dress up that $5 wine you bought at the corner store? Cover it with confetti, of course.
5. Confetti Ribbon: You may have seen similar DIY ribbons or garlands around, but we’ve got an amazing hack. Take a piece of painter’s tape, stick confetti pieces on it, sew down the middle, and peel the tape off. So simple!
6. Confetti Soap: Spice up your standard soap pump by filling it with confetti. Make sure to use confetti that’s large enough that it won’t try making its way into the pump. This will certainly surprise your guests when they use the restroom at your party.
7. Confetti Party Favors: Hand out envelopes filled with confetti as people arrive at your New Year’s party, or keep a bunch in your purse for wandering parties.
8. Confetti Wrap Bracelet: Hot glue and beige leather cord come together beautifully in this wrap. (Scroll up to the headband to see another shot of the wrap bracelet in action.)
9. Confetti Canvas Wall Art: In need of a burst of color on those walls? Grab a few canvases and some mod podge, and go to town with your confetti collection.
Confetti CoasterFinally, where to put all those drinks but on confetti coasters?! This one would also work festively with our polka dot party decor. Happy New Year indeed!

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
