Today Little Lady and I made a cool craft perfect for Mexican Independence Day Celebration!
Piñatas were a huge part of my childhood as they are of our culture so I wanted to create a little something to get the festivies started this weekend. What is a fiesta without a piñata and confetti?
To make your own Mini Fiesta Piñata here is what you need:
- Tissue paper- get patriotic with Green, White and Red for the mexican flag!
- Carboard- we used a mailing box
- Tape- washi tape works great
- Glue stick
- A circle shape- we used a cut out that measured 2.5 inches in diameter
- balloon string – not pictured
Attach your balloon string. This will allow your kids to be able to open the pinata with ease.
To make this: gather string and use your tape to hold it all together on one end. Attach it to the lid like part of your piñata on the inside with tape.
Fringe your tissue paper and start glueing it to either side of your piñata.
Be sure to start at the bottom and work your way up. I like to adhere a non fringed piece first and then add the fringe tissue over it.
Use the excess tissue you cut off and cut into smaller pieces. Now you have some awesome matching confetti fill up your piñata!
Gently push your lid in. If you need to trim the edges of your lid do so carefully. We trimmed enough to keep the lid pushed in.
It makes the best little keepsake as well!
Are you ready to celebrate el dia de la Independencia?
