Tay’s birthday party is coming up next month and I’m having so much fun planning it this year! I’m doing a princess tea party in our back yard. I saw this cute pull string Pinata on Young House Love and knew I had to make it! I did this project in two different nights and I think it turned out really well.
- Balloon (I used a “punching balloon” from the dollar store)
- Newspaper strips
- Paper Mache (1 part water, 1 part flour)
- Tissue Paper
- Hot Glue Gun
The first night night I did the paper mache and then let is dry. Then I cut a flap and put all the candy into the pinata. I added 10 pull strings to the flap and duct taped them on. I duct taped the flap closed and started adding on the tissue paper. I tried taping the tissue but it really wouldn’t stick to the paper mache so I used hot glue and it worked great. Here is the finished product. I hope Tay likes it!!!
