Introduction: The Big Popper

Picture of The Big Popper

This is a Giant popper made out of 150 other little poppers. Huge noise maker (even with just one small popper). Really cheap and easy to make. Throw into parties, class rooms, or any average crowd.

Step 1: Get 3 Boxes

Picture of Get 3 Boxes

Ok first get 3 boxes of poppers. i got the Wolf Pack ones but you can get other brands as long as they are still snappers. mine have 50 in each pack. Now Pour out the contents onto a table, newspaper, or anything that you won't risk getting sprinkled with tiny little pieces of wood. i suggest you open then on the street or anywhere outside (not grass). Then you must empty the contents and pick out the individual poppers. go throw away or get rid of the stuffing. do this with 3 boxes and put all the poppers onto the middle of an average tissue paper.

Step 2: Wrap It Up

Now take the four corners of the tissue and hold them together. then lift the tissue paper with the poppers in it. then twist the corners tightly. but not too tightly. if you do it too tightly you might start a chain reaction withing the Big Popper and kill em all (OMG!!!). just twist it and then fold the twisted part in half. then wrap tape around the twisted part. this should now look somewhat like the small poppers with a short tip.

Step 3: KABOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is what it looks like after the bang. some of the popper skins blew away, but the big popper skin is still there. there is also a video on the explosion in action.

Step 4: Voila!!!

Ok now your Big Popper is completed. Go around town and throw them into houses, parties, toilet stalls, ETC. Good Luck and piss people off!

Half of the popper never work...

One time I bought these poppers, they explode when you throw them on the ground. They are called Pop-Pops, they look like miniature firecrackers, but withoout the fuse. They are 3x as loud than those, and like 10x as reliable.

isn't there some formula that you can make the snappers instead of having to buy them?

NCRatSniper (author)2009-01-06

These are so cool, Ive been making em for years with a slightly different method, fun to bombard pigeons w/

danm95 (author)2008-10-11

you should try it in the dark!!!

laxrulz16 (author)2007-08-19

hey great idea i tryed it like 2 yrs ago but i did it wrong u can also where u twist it at the top u can try to duct tape it. i'll try it i also like ur popsicle stick bomb also ~laxrulz

kneecaps (author)laxrulz162007-08-20

well honestly you dont need duck tape...

coatesy900 (author)kneecaps2008-03-20

i think you'll find its called DUCT tape

actually duck tape is a type of duct tape

kneecaps (author)coatesy9002008-03-20

ohhh mr grammatically/misspellingly correcting random people ehhh? mr critic. no1 likes a PISS OFF!!!!


laxrulz16 (author)kneecaps2007-08-20

ah well it could just help it hold together but what the heck who knows ive never tryed it but it might work ~laxrulz

kneecaps (author)laxrulz162007-08-21

do u mean like wrap it entirely in duck tape? u dont really want it to contain the explosion. you want it to explode and make a mess. plus if its wrapped in duck tape it will make it quieter.

kidhavoc666 (author)kneecaps2008-04-25

well if u wrap the duct tape tightly but not too tight it will compress the explosion and make it more dangerous...=]

kneecaps (author)kidhavoc6662008-04-25

possibly. but i think duct tape is a bit too strong. its threaded and extremely sticky right? i think it will conpress it too tight. maybe masking tape will do it.

laxrulz16 (author)kneecaps2007-08-25

i mean the part where u twist it so it holds togethr easyer

kneecaps (author)laxrulz162007-08-26

uhh. normal tape is enuff to hold it closed man. you dont need super strong duck tape

laxrulz16 (author)kneecaps2007-08-27

ok yea your rite

kneecaps (author)laxrulz162007-08-28

lol XD victory!

magroin (author)2008-04-17

you know this nice but does ne1 knw how to make this poppers???????

EviLNinJa (author)2008-02-19

THE BEST WAY TO DO THIS is to unwrap all the poppers and pour the stuff inside into a plastic bag. this is as loud as a M-80

kneecaps (author)EviLNinJa2008-02-20

well.. its i assume it will also hurt your eardrum... thats like rly dangerous

EviLNinJa (author)kneecaps2008-02-20

it might not hurt your eardrums but you have to be careful not to accidentally explode it in your hands while making it.

BloodSucker (author)2007-11-29

iv done this too :) except i unwrapped all the little packets and then made a big one out of a origami box

plasmaspy (author)2007-11-27

cool i did this about a year ago with about 50 snaps in an origami pouch! nice to see someone who has posted this so i dont have to anymore. also sometimes when i was taking apart all the snaps the bowl i stored them in exploded cos i dropped the stones in too fast lol!

kneecaps (author)plasmaspy2007-11-28

heh i hate when that happens

nerfer192 (author)2007-11-13

this sucks i just did it and all the poppers but two exploded and all the sound it made was a little pop

kneecaps (author)nerfer1922007-11-17

well it also depends what brand you buy ya know?

nerfer192 (author)kneecaps2007-11-17

well usally i buy pop pops, but at the time i had party pops, so ill try the other brand.

kneecaps (author)nerfer1922007-11-22

some of them really suck. you throw them 10 feet into the air and nothing happens when they land. some are also bigger per piece. the asian poppers usually for better XD

nerfer192 (author)kneecaps2007-11-22

well i have yet to try the other brand, so byby now.

Bongmaster (author)2007-11-21

i did something similar where i emptied the contents of each popper into a larger paper i made using king size cigarette papers so it looked like a giant popper (or devil snaps these were called) and it was a real loud bang wen thrown :D

- creative name - (author)2007-11-15

unwrap all of them and have a pile of whatever is inside of the little poppers. it will work better

dude i just said to gorillazmiko YOU CAN GET INJURED...

GorillazMiko (author)2007-10-12

another GREAT idea is to like empty out the rocks, then get wrap them up. its really cool and loud, and it makes a huge spark as big as a tennis ball. ive done it many times, i tried spraying WD-40 on it but it just starts smoking and its really loud. nice instructable!

kneecaps (author)GorillazMiko2007-10-12

no dude. this is dangerous. don't!!! it could set something on fire, kill your ear drums, or make a huge fucking mess. trust me. don't... I only unwrapped like 50 and i was like 2 feet away from the load. my ears were ringing for hours

GorillazMiko (author)kneecaps2007-10-13

dude, ive done it like 10 times, NOBODY DIED.

kneecaps (author)GorillazMiko2007-10-18

dude i said it could set something on fire, kill your ear drums, or make a huge fucking mess. i didnt say any1 would die...

wat the heck are in these things that cause them to exploede

pooboy (author)Charles IV2007-07-26

its sand grains coated in silver fulmate has nothing to do with flint of gunpowder

pooboy (author)pooboy2007-07-26

opps i meant or not of

kneecaps (author)Charles IV2007-07-08

well it just makes a cooler and louder affect when u burn. the stuff inside is actually just flint and gunpowder. flint makes sparks when rubbed together. gunpowder explodes. so when u throw the popper the flint rubs and makes a spark that hits the gunpowder. then u get boom boom.

saltypyro (author)2007-07-24

sounds cool

liny (author)2007-07-07

I really dont know what does those stuff have that makes em explode but they wont blow up like powder when you burn em, they dont have any powder except of rocks. Cool explosion.

drummonkey92 (author)2007-07-06

i tried this before, using a film canister full of the contents of the little parcels. !!!!!!!!!!!BAD IDEA!!!!!!! i tried it once - blew up in my face, half full, hurt my eyes then thought 'well lightning wont strike twice' and tried again.... when i put the LAST ONE in the pot, it blew.... seriously, blind for 5 seconds, ringing in ears for 5 minutes, and banged my knee on the bottom of the desk!!! this way seems safer, good job!

kneecaps (author)drummonkey922007-07-06

lol thanks. i tried unwrapping em into the box it came in. only unwrapped like 40 and its hurt so bad. these ones r good

boombam (author)2007-06-18

i'd be glad to piss em' off, i'm off to research some more pyro technologies

kneecaps (author)boombam2007-06-18

so ur gonna burn these, then throw em?? well dont blame it on me XP

boombam (author)2007-06-18

i've seen some poppers where you can buy 75 by the pack and they are still cheap

kneecaps (author)boombam2007-06-18

well they all depend on where u live, the makers, and what store
