What's a 1st Birthday Party without a PINATA?
I got the GIFTS.....
I made the Cake Pops.....
I made the Cake......
I made the Hats.....
I made the Pinata!!
Tear newspaper into strips
Blow up a punch balloon.
Use a bowl as a base
Mix 2cups of white flour and 1 cup water
OR to the consistency of pancake batter
You will need to do this a few times as you go along.
I choose a work station outside...it can get a little messy
Dip a strip, remove excess by sliding fingers down strip.
Apply one at a time all the way around balloon.
Make sure you leave an opening to insert candy.
Use 3 small balloons for eyes and nose
Wait 24 hrs or until completely dry, pop ballons and paint.
Acrylic paint works the best for coverage.
$1 at Wal-mart.
Time to glue it all together.....
I used left over Mod Podge from another project.
Paint it on all around the eyes and nose.
Not to worry it drys clear.
Make 2 holes and add string or twine.
Use a magic marker for the eyes and mouth.
All ready to be filled with candy.....
I left the top open but you can close it up using more stripes, let it dry and painting
Stay tuned for scenes for the party........
