Confetti Poppers DIY


  • Knot your balloon, then cut off the tip. Stretch the balloon tightly around your toilet paper tube and secure with a piece of packing tape.
  • Cut out your printable label and secure with tape around the tube. Add additional glitter or stickers if desired.
  • To DIY your own confetti, take your fringe scissors and cut your metallic tissue paper and any additional paper you prefer to be made into confetti. We suggest making 3 tablespoons of confetti per tube.
  • Add the confetti to the tube. You may need to use a rolled piece of paper as a funnel to guide your confetti into the tube.
  • Cover the top of the confetti popper with a thin layer of tissue paper and tape. Then instruct guests to take off right before popping.
  • To launch your confetti popper, pull down on the bottom knot of the balloon and let go. The confetti should shoot up in the air with a pop!
