For Zac's 3rd Birthday he wanted a "Toy Story Party".
I made him a Pinata.
It was back in Feburay way before I even knew about the blogging world.
I did goggle and found a Tut on how to make it. I've tried looking for it again to link back to the site, but I can't find it any more. (Sorry)
Jessie & Woody!
For this tutorial I made a Hen's Party Pinata for my friend over at All The Whimsical Things
What you need:
Pen & Circle (plate)
Step 1: Flatten Nappy Box Out (Please don't look at my dirty rug)
Step 2: I used a dinner plate to trace out 2 circles.
Cut off the bottom of the box, this is perfect for the sides of the piñata.
Step 3: Measure around the Circle to see how much you need. Allow extra.
Step3: Sticky Tape together
Step 4: Should be looking something like this now.
Roll the sides on a table to make them curve a little.
Step 5: Stick the Side on 1 Circle. MAKE SURE THAT YOU FACE THE INSIDE OF THE BOX TO THE FRONT.(NO PRINT) It makes it easier to cover later on.
Step 6: Cut off excess & tape across the top.
Step 7: Cut a flap in the top for the lollies to go in.
Step 8: Tape on 2nd Circle.
I put extra tape on it, only because it was for adults.
It does take a long time to break for the kids.
Step 9: Cover the whole Piñata with Card board.
Step 10: Cut up some stripes of Crepe Paper.
Step 11: Place glue on the side & Ruffle up small stripes of Crepe Paper.
Step 12: Continue the whole way around, with 3 stripes. You may need to wait for it to dry to turn it around. The Crepe paper does run ink a little.
Step 13: Print up a picture & stick on front. Add some more Ruffles on the front.
Finally you can add the lollies, add some string to the flap, tape it down & hit away!
All made for $3 plus some yummy lollies!
