how to make a Piñata
I was maid of honor on the wedding of my friend sarah and we all hate wedding games..
so i needed something special what will lighten the mood and will not be too embarrassing.
My friend and colleague Hanna had the problem-solving hint.. Build a Piñata…
What a great idea.
so I bought:
a huge heart balloon..
a lot of sweets
crepe paper. So look at the different steps.
Inflate the balloon
put on the first layer of papier-maché and wait 1-2 days to let it dry.
add 2 more layers of papier-maché and wait until its completly dry.
cut a whole into the body and balloon and remove the broken balloon from the inside.
Fill the papier-maché body with confetti and sweets and fix a hood or something similar. (I added two iron hanger you get in german dry cleaning shops).
close the body with glue or an additional layer of papier-maché.
style the body with crepe paper as you like.
We hung the pinjata in a tree with a big rope and the wedding couple had to smash it with a woodn spoon… it was great fun!! and the kids loved it.
