I’ve got a quick and easy tutorial for the kiddos! You can call them Confetti Poppers, Party Shooters, Confetti Blasters or whatever fun name you want to come up with! Whatever you call them, these are super simple to make with some basic supplies that you probably already have lying around. And they are so much fun. These can be used for the 4th of July or customize the colors and patterns for other occasions such as New Years Eve, surprise birthdays, weddings or would even be cute for gender reveal parties! Get creative and have fun with these!
Here is what you’ll need to make these fun little Confetti Poppers:
- Paper Towel Rolls cut in half or clean Toilet Paper Rolls
- Scrapbook paper, cut to approximately 4×6 to cover the cardboard tubes
- Foil confetti (or use a hole punch to create confetti from construction paper)
- Washi tape or decorative duct tape
- Clear tape
You can use paper towel rolls and cut them in half.
Cut some decorative scrapbook paper so that it fits around the cardboard roll, then tape it down.
Cut off the top of the deflated balloon and tie the end. Stretch the cut end of the balloon and place it over one end of the cardboard tube.
Use washi tape to attach the balloon to the tube. Keep in mind that you’ll want to find a strong washi tape or you can also use duct tape.
Fill the tube with confetti.
To launch, hold the tube firmly in one hand. With the other hand, pull the balloon tightly and release. Woohoo!! Happy Fourth of July!!!!
