Using your own cones?

Simply fill one of your cones with rice. Measure the volume of rice used to work out how much confetti you will need per cone. For example if you needed 1/2 a cup of rice to fill your cone, you will need 1/2 cup of confetti. Although the materials are different, they still measure the volume in the same manner. Then you can just work out how many cones you have and multiply that by the measurement of rice.

For example, 20 people x 1/2 cup each = 10 cups of confetti
