Recycle a few toilet paper tubes, grab some balloons, and you have yourself some seriously stylish confetti poppers. Whether you make these poppers before a party, or allow guests to customize them as an activity, they will surely be a hit.
Things You’ll Need
Toilet paper tube
Decorative paper (optional)
Balloon (standard size)
Step 1: Decorate the Toilet Paper Tube
Paint each toilet paper tube or glue decorative paper around it, and allow to dry completely. This step will transform the common piece of cardboard into a party-worthy accessory. Craft paint covers well, dries quickly, and allows for variety.
Step 2: Embellish with Glitter
Apply a thin layer of liquid glue around the tube with a paintbrush. Before the glue begins to dry, sprinkle glitter generously over the toilet paper tube until you reach the desired effect. Shake off any loose glitter, and set aside until dry.
Step 3: Prepare the Balloon
Using a sharp pair of scissors, cut a standard size balloon in half horizontally, leaving the mouth piece intact. Discard the top half of the balloon, and place the remaining half over one end of the toilet paper tube.
Step 4: Add Confetti and Pop
Add a small amount of confetti into the open mouth of the party popper, then pull back on the balloon and let go. The snap of the balloon will push the confetti right out of the tube over and over again!
