DIY Tissue Paper Confetti Poppers

For your New Year’s Eve party, make sure these confetti poppers make it on the scene. These will make any party feel festive and they have a little surprise in them too! 

Hand these out with the champagne or cocktail before the countdown begins and everyone can ring in the new year with a bang. You can do any color combinations you want, but I made sure to include gold and silver to make it feel appropriate to the holiday. The clear poppers are easy to find on Amazon or any local craft store, but it's the outside decorating touches that really make the craft. 

I also love the idea of filling them with candy, so that when they pop at midnight, everyone gets a nice surprise along with the confetti. The colorful confetti is beautiful, fun and really on trend. Happy New Year's! 




Step 1: Cut strips of tissue paper into 2 inch and 1 inch strips.

Step 2: Fold the strips several times and then cut into one side of the folded strips (long side), making sure not to cut all the way through.

Step 3: Unfold the strips and start wrapping around the popper, starting from the bottom, taping as you go as necessary.

Step 4: Use the 2 inch strips for the bottom half and the 1 inch strips for the top half.

Step 5: Add candy and confetti into the popper and you are ready to go!
