DIY New Years Eve Party Poppers

I can’t believe another year has come and gone. We’ve had such a crazy 2015, and so much has changed. The biggest one is in my kiddos! They are growing so fast. Christmas was so wonderful this year, as it was the first time they’ve truly understood what it’s all about. We went all out with our Elf on the Shelf, Christmas decorations and lots of holiday baking. Not to mention the presents! Plus, we had a beautiful white Christmas, which was just the icing on the cake.

And now we head into the final holiday of the year, New Year’s Eve! Usually, we would find a sitter and go out on the town (or at least to a friend’s house!), but this year the kids are SUPER excited to celebrate. So I’ve been trying to figure out how to make this just as fun as the other holidays.

I came up with these super cute Party Poppers perfect for any party! I wanted them to be festive and fun but easy for the kids to use. Sure I could have just bought some down at the shops, but since I had the supplies on hand, I figured “Why not just make my own?” It’s a great little craft for all the kiddos!

Here’s what you’ll need:

Paper towel rolls
Black chalk paint
Paint brush
Silver glitter tape
Medium sized balloons
Confetti

To begin, cut your paper towel roll in thirds, and then paint each roll with the black chalk paint (you can use toilet paper rolls if you have them!).

Let your paper towel rolls dry.

Once your paper towel rolls are dry, tape around your rolls twice in the middle. Cut the top part of your balloon off and tie the bottom. If you would rather, you can just use glue and glitter to create a nice design on the roll, but this way is super fast and easy.

Stretch the top around your paper towel rolls and fill with confetti. That’s it!

To use the poppers, just hold them in one hand, and use your other to pull the bottom part of the balloon down (not too hard!). When you let go, the confetti will fly! I guarantee your kids will go gaga for this!

I hope you like this fun craft. Leave us a comment if you try it! And don’t forget to like and share!
