Sure, you can save your leftover party balloons for your next shindig. But you can also try a few of these balloon hacks to turn them into something even better. These three hacks give your old, used balloons new life.

Make a Confetti Popper

Simply cut the neck off of a balloon, and place the remaining balloon bulb over the end of a cardboard toilet paper roll. Decorate the roll with washi tape, then fill with confetti. When you’re ready to celebrate, pull back the balloon and watch your confetti fly.

Make a stress ball

Feeling stressed? Fill a balloon with toothpaste and once full, tie the end in a knot. Cut off the excess balloon end and squeeze out your frustration.

Make flowers stand up straight in a vase

If you want your flowers to stand up straight to create a fuller-looking bouquet, an old balloon can help. First, trim off the very top of the balloon blub. Then, stretch the cut-end over the top of a vase, leaving the neck in the center. Cut off the neck so there is a hole in the center. Place the flowers inside the hole for a more snug fit.

If you have leftover balloons lying around your home, don’t let them go to waste. You can use them to create so much more!
