How to Make Party Poppers Tutorial

Party poppers are great for giving your guests at a party a fun surprise! Consider using them for your New Years party, a gender reveal party, or at an engagement/wedding celebration.


  • tissue paper
  • toilet paper rolls
  • washi tape or string/ribbon
  • candy and confetti

Measure your tissue paper to be about 10-12 inches wide. Toilet paper rolls are about 4 inches long.

Lay your roll onto the tissue paper at one end and begin rolling.

Gather the end on one side, and twist.

Secure with washi tape or string, and fill the other end with the treats or confetti.

Small treats such as candies, confetti, printed messages, jokes, trinkets are all things that would fit.

Secure the second end with wahi tape and you are done!

When it is time to open them, grab both ends and pull hard! Kids will love being surprised with what things fly out!

I love this idea for a gender reveal…fill the inside with boy or girl colors/message to surprise family and friends.

    Aaaw, I made some of these in middle school & forgot all about them! These are awesome. We’re going to be at someone ELSES house for new years this year, so these will be even more fun (since I won’t have to vacuum!) haha… that’s terrible, huh.

    happy new year!
