You’ll need:
• Chenille sticks

Instructions:
1. Tie the balloon. Cut off the end opposite the knot. Stretch the opening around the end of a cardboard tube. Use tape to hold the balloon in place.

2. Tape cardstock around the tube. Decorate with chenille sticks, wiggle eyes, pompoms, and other materials. Use a hole punch to make confetti from cardstock.

3. To launch the confetti, pour it in the tube. Hold the creature with one hand, and pull the balloon knot with the other. Aim, then release the knot. Happy New Year!
