Instructions to make a Balloon Confetti Popper

Blow up your balloon a couple of times to stretch it, this way you can fill it with more of your confetti.  Whatever you do, do not be tempted to put the funnel in a blown up balloon and try to add the confetti as the air pressure will make the confetti fly all over your room – trust me!

Take your funnel and put it in a stretched deflated balloon and fill with confetti.  I found that gently pushing it in with a pencil was the best way to do this.

Once you balloon is filled with your confetti, then inflate it and tie it in a knot.

Now is the time to add your date  You can draw it on with a metallic sharpie, but I cut out 2016 and then stuck the numbers on with Blue tac microdots.

As our balloons were not filled with helium I had the knot to the top and added string before securing it to our ceiling ready to be popped on New Years Eve.
