Step 1

Use colorful paper to create your homemade confetti. Slide the confetti into your balloon through the opening. You may need to wiggle and stretch the balloon a bit to easily slide the confetti through.


  • Fold larger pieces of confetti in half so that they are easier to place inside the balloons. Once you have slid them through the opening, you can unfold the paper.
