my true love gave to me - A pinata for a Christmas Party
We make a lot of pinata's around here. It's almost not a party if there isn't a pinata. We do 'em for birthdays, Easter, Christmas. Anytime is a good time for a pinata!
Most are of the basic (not beautiful type)
Lately I've been getting a lot of pinata inspiration over at O Happy Day see: here here here
I thought I would attempt their fairly easy style of making Pinata's
(well I assume its easier and quicker than the layers of paper mache style we usually do)
A candy cane shape sounded easy to achieve. Perhaps a tree wouldn't be too hard either.
::Cut two large candy cane shapes from a cardboard box
::Using a long rectangle piece join the candy cane shapes
::Use tape generously around edges and to stick it all together.
::Fringe strips of red and white crepe paper and glue in lines like a candy cane
:: Fill with Lollies, confetti, balloons, treats of any kind.
(side note - I just can't look at Santa pinata's after attending a womens (no children) Christmas party where grown women fought over and smashed up a Santa Pinata. It felt so feral - which is why I always try to stick to non human/animal shapes when making pinatas and attempt to keep kids not too crazy.
