With my holiday party less than a week away our house looks like a party planning construction zone. I have been working on so many diys and I am so excited to be showing you my diy pinata, because I am super happy with how it came out. It was actually much easier than I had expected and turned out pretty similar to the confetti systems one I was drooling over. I already had all the materials with the exception of the foil tissue, so all in all I spent about $3 on this project.
These are the steps I followed with a few tweaks found at the bottom of this post.
If making a diamond shape cut 8 perfect triangles all the same size. If you sucked in geometry (ME) and they do not come together exact, you can cheat a little while taping it together, over lapping, or taping over gaps.
DO NOT USE A GLUE THAT RUNS. I found the roller adhesives to work the easiest and cleanest. A glue stick would work as well.
Start at the bottom and work your way up.
Don't forget to attach your rope or string through the top. I braided torn pieces of fabric to create a rope.
If you are going to use it as a real pinata dont forget to cut a hole to fill it.
