3 Ways to Celebrate with Confetti

A New Year's party isn't a party without confetti.

Erin Furey, associate crafts editor at Martha Stewart, shares her favorite types of confetti and one brilliant idea for a New Year's Eve your friends and family will be talking about for years to come: the confetti balloon!

To make it, you'll need:

  • Balloons

  • Confetti

  • Funnel

  • Helium tank (or you can blow the balloons up with air)

  • Chopstick

  • Curling ribbon


  1. Insert funnel into balloon.

  2. Fill it up with confetti.

  3. If you need an extra push to get the confetti inside the balloon, a chopstick does the trick.

  4. Blow up the balloon.

  5. Tie the end with your curling ribbon.

  6. Pop the balloons at the stroke of midnight! Happy New Year!
