This is a very simple PVC pipe confetti launcher. It's an easy project even if you've never worked with PVC piping before,
and it's great for parties. In total, it cost me about 15$ CAD.
Step 1: Materials
All the PVC pipe I used in this project was sch 40. it must be sch 40 to withstand the pressure, so make sure to check before buying your tubing.
6" of 1" pipe
2 2" lengths of 1/2" pipe
2 1" couplers
2 1" to 1/2" reducing bushing
1 1/2" slip ball valve
1 1" cap
a popped bike tube
After using my confetti launcher several times, I discovered that if the 1" to 1/2" reducing bushing is switched for a longer piece of 1/2" tube it fires the confetti much farther, but does not disperse it as much. This is a good option if you want more hang time with the confetti. I recommend 4 to 5 inches of 1/2" pipe for this approach.
