DIY of the Week: Halloween Party Poppers

This DIY is super fun to make, and even more fun to take apart! These party poppers from Onion Rings and Things would be a perfect surprise for kids on Halloween!


  • 6 Empty Toilet Paper Tubes
  • Tissue Paper— in this example they use orange, green, purple, light purple, Halloween print
  • Pipe Cleaners
  •  Googly Eyes
  • Glue Stick
  •  Candy and Small Toys


  1. Cut 2 sheets of orange tissue paper 12×7 inches. Cut 2 sheets of green tissue paper 12×10 inches.
  2. Lay the bigger sheets on top of the small sheets and lay a tube on the longer edge and glue the paper to it. Roll the paper tightly around the tube and glue the other edge down.
  3. Cut the pipe cleaners in half. Hold together the paper at one end of the tube, wrap a pipe cleaner around it, and twist it tight to close.
  4. Fill the tube with candy and toys. Squeeze the other paper together at the other end of the tube, wrap a pipe cleaner around it and twist it tight to close poppers.
  5. Glue googly eyes on and draw a mouth.
