Fun Handmade New Year's Poppers

By Sara McGill MK Brandon PM December 29, 2011

Make these fun New Year's Poppers filled with fun! I love making these in my house!

Here's what you need:

  • Empty toilet paper rolls
  • any festive wrapping paper or tissue paper
  • curling ribbon
  • scissors or craft knife
  • tape
  • Candy, trinkets, Mardi Gras beads, crayons, anything to fill up the poppers

Start by measuring out enough wrapping paper to cover the roll but also leave extra on the ends to tie up with ribbon. (see photo) Next, cut the roll in half almost completely, but leave a small area attached (as seen in photo). Cutting will make it easier to rip open the popper when it's covered. Cover the roll and tie up one end with ribbon. Fill the roll with candy, etc. Tie up the other end. Give them out as a party favor along with noise makers! If you want the filling to be a surprise, but also want your kids to do this craft, have them fill the other child's popper and open them later.

Thanks Sara McGill, MK Brandon PM for sharing this cute craft!
