DIY Party Poppers

Want to create some special party poppers for New Years' Eve (or any other special occasion that calls for a celebration)? Over at Homemade Simple, I am sharing instructions for how to make your own party poppers using toilet paper tubes. Fill these crackers with paper crowns for New Years' Eve, and throw in a few dollar store party favors for good measure. [how to make party poppers]

Project Materials:

  • Empty toilet paper or paper towel tubes, on hand
  • Tape (regular and double-sided), on hand or $1 each
  • Colorful tissue paper, on hand or $1
  • Confetti, small trinkets, toys and candy, $1 and up
  • Curling ribbon, on hand or $1
  • Patterned gift wrap, on hand

Total: $1 and up

p.s. I love crafting with toilet paper tubes! Here are 30 ideas for crafting with cardboard tubes!
