I love confetti, like I love felt. It’s such a simple material but it instantly adds a little more fun to any project or space that you use it in. Today, I tried out a new product and paired it with confetti… so really it doesn’t get much better than this! Today I showing you how to make a DIY Confetti Tray (so perfect for a quick DIY gift idea, too!).

First of all, have you all seen Mod Podge Dimensional Magic Glue before? The stuff is pretty amazing and it appears like there are about 2 million different things you can use it for! I bought two bottles of it and have been waiting for just the right project and was really excited to with how this project turned out.
Confetti Tray Steps:
1. Apply a generous layer of regular Mod Podge to your wooden tray surface.
2. Pour your confetti! This was a fun step. I had two confetti push pops from a previous project, so I popped them open and filled my tray. I also added just a little bit of gold glitter because brightly colored confetti clearly was not enough bling for this project.
3. Once the tray was full of confetti, using my hands, I patted/smashed down the confetti so that most of it stuck to the mod podge bottom.
4. Open your Mod Podge Dimensional Magic Glue and slowly fill up the tray. Note, do not shake before using as this will cause air bubbles in the glue. I ended up using two bottles of the mod podge glue to cover all my confetti.
The glue changed the color of the papers to a bit more purple but once it all dried the original colors came right back! Also, the glue comes out a cloudy white color but dries clear.
I set my tray on a level spot and allowed it to dry for 24 hours. Once it was dry, it truly did seem magical.
I love that this dimensional glue is also a non-toxic material.
It’s hard to tell from the pictures, but I painted the outside edge of my tray with white acrylic paint and left the very top edge raw wood.
Okay, now head out and give this cool stuff a try for yourself! Believe me, it’s very addicting.
