4th of July DIY Confetti Poppers
Supplies Needed for these fun 4th July poppers:
- Empty toilet paper rolls
- Colored tissue paper (we used red)
- Paper Confetti
- Red and blue ribbon
- Gold pipe cleaners
- Star stickers
How To Make Confetti Poppers
First, gather all of your supplies so they are in easy reach. You can make just one popper if you like, but the more poppers you have, the more fun!
I also suggest reading through the instructions once and then attempt your craft while you follow along.
Step 1: Wrap the Toilet Paper Rolls
To make these homemade confetti poppers start by gathering your supplies. Grab a piece of your tissue paper and fold it in half.
Wrap it around an empty toilet paper roll and glue it in place.
Step 2: Tie One End of the Popper
Tie red and blue ribbon around one end of the tissue paper to close it off. Make sure to use firm but gentle pressure as you don’t want to tear the tissue paper.
Step 3: Fill Your Confetti Popper
Next, pour your paper confetti into the tube through the open end. You can make your own red and blue confetti by folding up construction paper and then cutting it into strips.
You could also just cut the paper into small squares if you’d rather.
Step 4: Close Your Popper
When the cardboard roll is full of your confetti, you can then tie the open end of your popper with red or blue ribbon to close it.
Step 5: Curl your Ribbon
Next, use scissors to curl the ends of your ribbon by running the side of the ribbon over the sharp edge of a pair of scissors.
Then use a gold pipe cleaner to decorate each end of your handmade confetti poppers.
You can curl the pipe cleaner by wrapping it around a pencil or pen.
Step 6: Decorate the Confetti Popper
Now you can decorate the popper with your star stickers. This is a part that my kids love doing. You can decorate your popper with anything you like.
Since were doing these for 4th of July, we used the red, blue and gold stars.
Step 7: Celebrate
Now the fun part! Once you’re ready to use your poppers, simply pull hard on both ends at the same time while holding it high in the air.
The confetti will release!
You could also fill the poppers with little candies if you want an extra surprise. These would look great stacked in a bowl for a 4th of July BBQ or party.
