  • Foil confetti (or use a hole punch to create confetti from construction paper)
  • Cardboard tubes (like clean toilet paper tubes or paper towel tubes cut in half)
  • Scissors

DIY Confetti Popper Steps for attaching balloon.

Cut the top off each balloon. Tie a knot on the blowing end of the balloons.

Stretch the cut end of each balloon over one end of each cardboard tube. 

Use washi tape to cover the seam where the printed wrap meets the balloon. (Washi tape quality varies. If washi tape is not strong enough, duct tape can be used.)

Fill each confetti cannon with confetti.

To use, hold the confetti cannon firmly in one hand. With the other hand, pull the balloon tight and release. ENJOY!
