What is natural petal confetti?

Natural petal confetti is made from real flower petals and is a beautiful, eco-friendly alternative to traditional confetti. It is biodegradable and will not harm the environment. Natural petal confetti comes in many different colors, so you can choose the perfect shade to match your wedding theme. One litre of natural petal confetti gives you approximately 80 handfuls.

How many handfuls of confetti do I get from 1 litres of confetti?

If you're looking to cover a lot of ground with your confetti, or if you want to make a really big impact, you might be wondering how many handfuls of confetti you can get from 1 litres of confetti.

One litre of natural petal confetti will give you around 15-20 handfuls of confetti. This is based on the average size of a human hand and the average density of natural petal confetti.

Of course, this is just an estimate - if you have particularly small hands or if your confetti is particularly dense, you might be able to get more or less than this from 1 litre. But 15-20 handfuls should give you a good idea of how much coverage you can expect from 1 litre of confetti.

How to make your own dried petal confetti

1. Collect your petals. If you're using fresh petals, make sure they're completely dry before you start. You can lay them out on a towel or newspaper to air dry overnight, or use a hair dryer on the lowest heat setting.

2. Place your petals in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. If you're using fresh petals, you can preheat your oven to its lowest temperature setting for a few minutes to help speed up the drying process.

3. Bake your petals in the oven for 1-2 hours, or until they're completely dried out and crumbly. Check on them periodically to make sure they're not burning.

4. Once they're done, let them cool completely before handling. Then, simply rub them between your fingers to turn them into fine confetti!

The different types of natural biodegradable confetti

As you begin planning your natural petal confetti, you may be wondering how much you need. One litre of confetti will give you approximately 15-20 handfuls. But what exactly is a handful? And what are the different types of confetti?

A handful of confetti is about one cup, or enough to fill your cupped hand. The size of your hand will determine how much confetti fits in a cup. Generally speaking, though, one litre of confetti will give you approximately 15-20 handfuls.

There are three main types of natural petal confetti: rose petals, hydrangea petals, and lavender buds. Rose petals are the most popular type of confetti and they come in a variety of colors including pink, red, white, and yellow. Hydrangea petals are also popular and they come in shades of blue, purple, and pink. Lavender buds add a touch of color and fragrance to your confetti mix.

When choosing your confetti, keep in mind that rose petals will float in water so they’re perfect for outdoor weddings where there may be a chance of rain. Hydrangea petals sink so they’re ideal for indoor weddings or for using as table decorations. either way, natural biodegradable confetti is a beautiful way to add a personal touch to your wedding day!
