DIY Party Poppers

DIY party poppers


  • Toilet paper roll
  • Scissors
  • Double-sided tape
  • Leftover tissue paper
  • Filler (treats or confetti)
  • Ribbon
  • Construction paper or card stock


  1. Cut toilet paper roll in half.
  2. Tape halves back together using two pieces of double-sided tape. Place tape flat on the roll-it doesn’t need to be completely tape shut. (This way, the filler will burst from the center of the roll, not just one end.)
  3. Cut one sheet of tissue paper in half. The sheet should be slightly wider than the toilet paper roll.
  4. Stuff roll with confetti or treats.
  5. Wrap tissue paper around the toilet paper roll. The double-sided tape will act as an adhesive.
  6. Tie both ends with ribbon.
  7. Using scissors, cut a small slit in the center of the tissue paper so the paper will rip easily down the center-then decorate with construction paper or card stock!
