Homemade Patriotic Poppers

Homemade Patriotic Poppers

Get ready for next month’s holiday with this confetti popper! A safe, fun alternative to sparklers!

9″ Balloons
Toilet Paper Tubes
Packing Tape
Patterned paper, stickers, glitter, etc.
For Confetti – metallic tissue paper and/or gift bag filler, paper, etc.


Knot the balloon, and cut off the tip. Stretch the balloon tightly around the toilet paper tube, and secure in place with a strip of packing tape.

Use patterned paper, stickers, markers, glitter, etc. to decorate the tubes. For these tubes, we simply wrapped them with scrapbook paper, secured the paper with tape, and added a few star sticker embellishments.

Cut tissue paper, filler or paper with scissors to create at least three tablespoons of confetti per tube.

Add the confetti to the tube. To launch the confetti, pull down on the bottom knot of the balloon, and let go!
