New Year's Eve Noisemaker

Empty plastic water bottle
Beans, rice, or other items to place inside
1 sheet tissue paper
Scraps of tissue paper in various colors, cut into small squares
4 pieces of 24 inch ribbon, various colors
White craft glue

Instructions: Place a handful of beans or rice inside the clean, dry water bottle. Run some glue ( I like to use a hot glue gun for this) around the mouth of the bottle and replace the cap. Make a mixture of 1/2 white craft glue and 1/2 water that will be enough to cover the bottle a few times over. Tear tissue paper into large chunks, approximately 4”x2”. Paint a small section of the outside of the water bottle with the glue mixture. Place a torn piece of tissue paper onto the glue mixture and paint over it with the glue mixture. Repeat this process, covering the entire bottle with 2-3 coats of glue. Apply small colorful squares of tissue paper randomly over the white tissue paper to resemble confetti. Tie ribbon around the neck of the bottle.  Allow to dry for several hours.

You are ready to make some noise at midnight.
