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.
