DIY: Confetti Topper

These confetti toppers are so cute and easy. Turn your plain and boring dessert into a festive treat in a matter of minutes.


  • Tissue Paper
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Toothpick
  • Wax Paper


  • 15 Minutes


  • These look like they could be tricky, but they are actually super simple.

We made our own confetti, but you can feel free to use store-bought glitter or confetti. To see how to make your own confetti click here. Using a hot glue gun draw out your shape of choice on the wax paper. Then, stick the toothpick into the hot glue.

Add another layer of hot glue onto the first layer and sprinkle with confetti.

Let it cool for a few minutes, then slowly pull it off of the wax paper and flip over.

Apply another layer of hot glue to this side and sprinkle with confetti.

Let cool and you’re finished!

*If you are creating small shapes you may need to trim the confetti a bit to be able to better see what your shape looks like. I trimmed around the curved edges to give our confetti toppers a more defined heart shape.
