Looking to add a little flair to your Easter Egg Hunt this year?
How about an Easter Egg Pinata? Not only is it a Fabulessly Frugal idea… An Egg Pinata is super easy to make…
These step by step instuctions will make whipping one up a breeze!
You will need:
- Old Newspaper
- Tissue Paper
Start with a regular party balloon…
Blow up the Balloon.
Next… find an old Sunday paper… and tear a few sections into 3″ by 4″ strips…
You don’t have to be exact… 3″ by 4″ size strips are just easier to work work with…
You will want your work area to be protected so put some plastic or paper over your table or work area.
In a leftover plastic container mix 1 part glue to 2 parts warm water and mix well…
Dip a piece of torn newspaper into the glue and cover with the mixture…
Apply the newspaper strip to the balloon.
Continue adding glue covered strips until the balloon is completely covered.
Be sure and prop your balloon up on some sort of container so it doesn’t roll off and make a mess.
Let the paper/glue covered balloon dry overnight.
Repeat this step 3 or 4 times. So you have a few newspaper layers on the balloon.
Would you look at that? It’s looking like an egg already.
Next cut some colored tissue paper into 2″ strips.
I was able to find a 4o sheet pack at the dollar store!
Next cut your tissue paper into 2″ squares.
Scrunch the tissue and add a big drop of glue.
Attach the tissue square to the egg.
Continue to add more tissue.
Add different colors.
Until your egg is covered…
Don’t forget to leave a space on top so you can cut an opening.
To fill the Pinata will candy or toys.
Fill the Pinata!!!
Close the opening… and cover with tissue.
Next grab your scissors, poke a hole on opposite sides of the egg towards the upper 1/3 of the pinata. So you can attach a rope or ribbon.
Next tape a recycled ribbon onto a chop stick and thread your ribbon through the pinata.
See… How easy was that???
Cost? About 2 dollars!
Ahhh yes… being a Fabulessly FruGAL is a walk in the park…
