My girl turned 10 this month!
My kids love pinata! So when ever there is a birthday they have to have one.
Well me on the other hand hate to spend $20 for an empty decorated box which they are going to hit and break in 10 mins.
Whats the solution then? Well, I had to DIY one of course.
I was actually meaning to do this post about two years ago. But as always I get too excited when I am doing a project and forget to take enough photos for a post.
This time too, I forgot a final picture :(
Well gotta do with what I have in hand. That should give you the overall idea.
Here we go.
|Dollar store gift bags. I had one in hand already - $0|
|Tissue paper. I used scraps from my paper pompoms :)|
|I don't know what these paper rolls are called but you can find them at the Dollar store. They are 2 for $1!|
|Any craft glue|
|Scissors of course ;)|
|Candy of your choice|
|Cut the cardboard pieces to size so that fit the bottom and the sides of the bag|
|Set them inside|
|Fold and cut your paper roll like this. then open the fold|
|and glue them in place|
|Keep building layers from bottom to top|
|Once done, fill in the candies and shredded tissue|
Staple the top to close and hang with the handle of the bag to your desired height :D
As usual I forgot to take a close up pic of my finished product but here is one I found.
|Can you spot the pinata?|
Total cost of the pinata less than $2
Happy kiddo happy me :D
