Halloween Candy Poppers

These party favors are sure to be a hit at your Halloween party.

Material :

Craft knife/ruler
Empty paper towel tubes
Tissue paper in a Halloween color
Tape/stickers/paint pen/ 4 Chenille stems


1. Use a craft knife cut two 3 inch lengths from the paper towel tube. With scissors cut a 5x12 inch rectangle from a stack of 3 or 4 sheets of tissue paper.

2. Center the two tubes lengths on one long edge of the layered tissue paper,leaving a 1/4 inch wide space between the tubes. Secure each section to the edge of the tissue paper with a piece of tape. Roll the tissue paper around the paper tube and secure with stickers.

3. Twist together two chenille stems. Gather the excess tissue paper at one tube end and secure with the twisted stems. Fill the tube with candy.

4.Close the remaining end in the same way. Coil the ends of the chenille stems.

5. Cut triangles into the tissue paper ends for a jagged look. Trim the popper with stickers.
