  • String, Yarn or Ribbon Optional
  • Crayons, Markers, Paint or Glitter Glue

  • Glue and Tape

How to make Cardboard Roll Confetti Poppers

Step 1Cardboard Roll Popper #1   Wrap the cardboard roll with construction paper leaving paper hanging from both ends (enough the twist on both ends).  
Step 2Twist one end of the construction paper to close the end.  Fill the popper with confetti.    You can make your own confetti using a hole punch or tear paper into small pieces.  You can also buy confetti in fun shapes to fit your special celebration.  
Step 3Now twist off the other end of the construction paper.  If needed, apply some tape in the middle of the cardboard roll to hold the paper in place.   At the time of your celebration (like at midnight on New Year’s Eve), simply hold each twisted end and pull.  This will pull off the end and release the confetti.  
Step 4Cardboard Confetti Popper #2   Cover the cardboard roll and cut off the excess on each end.  
Step 5Cut two circles out of construction paper slightly larger than the opening of the roll.  Glue one end on the roll.  
Step 6Fill the popper with confetti.  Taking the other paper circle, poke a small hole in the middle.   
Step 7Thread some string or ribbon through the hole.  Tape the string to one end of the circle, then the opposite end.  Repeat for the other two ends of the circle.    Tip:  By placing the ribbon all around the circle, this will allow the paper to be pulled off easily when it’s time to release the confetti.  
Step 8Now tape this circle to the open end of the cardboard roll leaving enough string or ribbon to grab and pull to release your confetti.  

That’s all there is to these confetti poppers kids crafts.  Simply wait until it’s time to release your confetti to ring in the New Year or your special occassion.
