DIY Birthday Pinata. Hey DIYers!

DIY Birthday Pinata

It’s Chelsea, back from my hangout at Lovely Indeed to show you an extra fun project I recently created for my niece’s first birthday. It’s perfect for any summer celebration, especially one with a little Mexican flavor. Today, we’re talking DIY pinatas! Here’s what you’ll need: some cardboard, an empty cereal box, tissue paper, masking tape, scissors, a glue stick, and pipe cleaners or thick twine.

Once all of your tissue is fringed, grab your glue stick and start applying the fringe to the pinata form, starting at the bottom and working your way up.

When you’ve covered the pinata, cut small holes on the open flap at the top, and corresponding holes on the top in a section that is taped down.
