How to:

Step 1: Head on over to Cricut Design Space and cut out the piñata template.

Step 2: Using your glue stick, construct the piñata.


Step 3: Attach the fringe, starting from the bottom. Below you can see for the body, I added two rows of white, one row of gold, followed by two rows of white.


Step 4: Create the horn: Take the horn and wrap it with your washi tape (or paint with gold paint). Glue to the head.

Step 5: Continue adding fringe until the whole body in covered.


Step 6: Create the Mane: Cut a 2 inch by 2 inch square of your colorful paper for the mane. Follow the chart below.



Step 7: Cut 2 inch by 3-inch squares from the colored tissue paper. Cut fringe. Glue the tops together and roll. Twist the very top of the tissue papers together, then add glue and glue into the tail hole.


Step 8: Glue on the eyes and enjoy!
