Let's get this party started!


1. Gather your items

I used leftover gold confetti from a birthday party along with a balloon, ribbon from last Christmas, {that I never used} and a toilet paper tube.



2. Knot the balloon and cut the top off



3. Stretch balloon on to the toilet paper tube



4. Tape balloon to the toilet paper tube


I used packing tape because it was larger but you can use scotch tape.


5. Decorate your tube


I decided to wrap my tube in scrap wrapping paper. Attached with hot glue and then added a little embellishment with ribbon.


6. Add your confetti



7. Now it's time to celebrate!



Simply pull the balloon back and let the confetti fly!
