How to Make Your Own Piñata (Part 1)
I am making a piñata! I shared this a few days ago on my Facebook page so I wanted to share it with you here too. My daughter is turning one in a few more days and I wanted to do something special for her. My older kids have gotten piñatas for their first birthday. I didn’t want her to miss out on that tradition. Unfortunately this time it is up to me to procure the piñata. So I turned to you on Facebook and you led me to the website Piñata Boy. I used his tips for making a heart shaped piñata to make what I hope will be a crown shape one for our little princess.
Here is my progress so far:
I used a clothes hanger and cardboard to make the shape of the crown:
Then wrapped it in paper and created a web with painters tape to give it “body”. The instructions called for masking tape but I had none of that. but I did have a lot of painter’s tape since my husband painted a couple of rooms in our new house:
This is what it looks like now after two coats of papier mache:
That’s all I have for now. I hope the next update is after I have it decorated. I am not crafty AT ALL!! So I am very proud to be up to this point, can’t you tell? I just hope I am doing it right.
