Five Upcycled Piñatas that You Can Make

paper bag pinatas from Giddy GiddyLet’s say that you read the newspaper online–do you have any paper bags?

These brown paper bag piñatas from The Journals of Giddy Giddy come complete with their own hanging loops, and they’re so simple to make that you can spend all your time on decorating them. If you don’t have crepe paper, try cutting up glossy magazines and separating them into piles of different color ways to use in place of the dyed crepe paper.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life; my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties; and my for links to articles about poverty, educational politics, and this famous cat who lives in my neighborhood.
