With Christmas gone and New Year’s right around the corner, we know everyone is in search of simple tips that include the perfect holiday entertaining diy or meal solution. While running errands in Walmart I found myself asking this very question, How can I get ready for New Year’s Eve entertaining stress free? Then I saw it! New Year’s Eve entertaining doesn’t have to be stressful with Cracker Barrel Cheese Trays. So true and so perfect for keeping the guests nibbling at something while the meal is ready or just to enjoy with a nice drink and other treats on the side.
Here is a fun tutorial that also focuses on New Year’s Eve entertaining, “Party Poppers”! What better way to ring in the new year than with a showering of glittery confetti. I love the different varieties of party poppers available. There’s the one that pops out confetti with a bang, the one that has cute presents inside and the ones that pops confetti with no cracker snap (or no bang included). I made some for you today. These are filled with golden stars confetti. It has no cracker snaps because some of my guests are small kiddos that are afraid of the sound, but they do love seeing the confetti fly all over the room. No worries for any cleanup, you can attend to that later. The fun is worth every tiny piece of paper laying around. Here’s to a Happy New Year to you and your family!
New Year’s Eve Party Poppers
- Tissue Paper
- Construction Paper (cardboard or toilet paper roll)
- Double Sided Tape
Steps to follow:
You can make your own confetti or purchase them. I purchased some cute gold stars confetti. They were perfect for our New Year’s Eve party. Everyone is always aiming for the stars when a new year arrives.
Cut the tissue paper 12 inches by 8 inches. This length gives you enough room to cut the end of each party popper into pompoms for a fun look or leave as is for a more glamorous look. You decide. Here I show you both ways.
Cut the construction paper 6 inches by 4 1/2 inches, (or you can use a toilet paper to a faster project). Once cut, roll and tape with a piece of double sided tape on both ends. Finally cut in half. This step will be very helpful in order to snap each party popper in half and enjoy the confetti.
Tightly roll the tube around the tissue paper and adhere with the double sided tape.
Cut the ribbon at about 10-11 inches. Tie one end with your ribbon.
Stuff with confetti into the other end until it’s full or has your desired amount. Tie off the other end with another piece of ribbon.
Fan out the ends. This is where you can cut each end into pompoms or leave as is.
Your party popper is finished!
Now, you can pull apart forcefully and watch it go POP!
