I’ve seen a few packs of Diamond Jubilee party poppers in the shops but thought how easy it would be to decorate my own and save a bit of money ……
….. especially as I already had a packet of these paper chains (below) from my local Cancer Research shop and which I have used in several projects previously. They only cost £2.00, are double sided and there are 240 links in a pack, which will last forever!!
All I have done is cut each link in half and colour the gaps between the flags with a matching Promarker pen as the original white was a little harsh. Then I applied double sided tape to the link and rolled it round the popper …… simples!
The “ordinary” poppers cost 99p for a pack of 20 from The Works. It was a very spookily find because although not branded as Jubilee items, their plastic bodies match perfectly the vintage colour red, white and blue of the links, how brilliant is that??
Party poppers are not suitable for young children.
