I am going to warn you though, you will be finding confetti for days no matter how hard you clean up! So if you are a little precious about that then make sure you “Pop” them outside and don’t say I didnt warn you.

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.
