a confetti popper advent is my fave

November 20, 2013

Of all the advent calendars I’ve seen, this one might disperse the daily prize in the most fun way. With just a little tug, confetti and candy for all! Or at least for one, these aren’t piñata sized.

To make your own, you’ll need:
– 24 empty toilet paper rolls
– patterned paper (I used some from the Rifle Paper Co line at Anthropolgie)
– tape
– twine or cord
– small, circle labels
– filler

Wrap paper around each toilet paper roll and adhere with tape. Make sure you leave extra paper at the bottom and fold it up like you would the end of a present. Then stuff it inside the roll so the bottom is fully covered. Thread the twine or cord through the paper and knot on the inside so it stays put and grips the paper for a good pull. Number each one with a circle label and stick to the middle of the pull string. Stuff the goodies in the top and pull for a fun reveal.

You could easily punch holes in the top to string and display. But then you might not be able to prevent tugging all the strings in one go and that might lead to countdown disappointment.
