Make this easy new years diy craft
We love to create and craft around here, so it’s no surprise that we wanted to try making party poppers for the countdown to the new year. We tend to make toilet paper roll crafts often, so we save the rolls here and there, just in case we come up with something! No need to buy party poppers for new years this year, we’ve found a way to make our own and they turned out great!
DIY New Years Eve Party Poppers
All you need are a few materials to make this new years eve craft, all of which you probably have at home. Here’s how to make DIY New Year’s Eve party poppers.
Materials needed for these New Years confetti poppers:
- toilet paper rolls
- assorted colored tissue paper
- colorful confetti
- small candies
- washi tape, clear gift tape, ribbon
Here’s how to make a confetti popper with toilet paper rolls
First, you’ll take your tissue paper and unfold it to open it up. Grab your toilet paper roll and, starting at one end of the tissue paper, roll it over a few times or until the whole thing is completely covered. Make sure there is tissue paper hanging off on each side of the toilet paper tube.
Secure one end of your DIY paper popper and add confetti
Next, twist just one of the ends like a piece of candy and tie it with ribbon or tape to secure. Make sure it’s completely sealed!
On the other end of the toilet tissue roll that’s still open, add a couple of pieces of small candies and confetti. I used a small amount of confetti in each popper for much easier cleanup!
Twist and tie off the other end, like you did the first one, making sure it is completely sealed. Now, you can trim the ends to your desired length and decorate the popper. That’s it!
How to make party poppers actually “pop”
To “pop” your homemade paper poppers, pull each end of the paper on both sides of the popper at the same time really hard. Then… BAM! The confetti goes flying!
Note: The gold and white party popper pictured here was made out of wrapping paper. You’ve gotta pull this one a little bit harder to pop, but it still works! The DIY new years eve party poppers made out of tissue paper are much better for kids as they are easier to “pop”.
