Five Upcycled Piñatas that You Can Make

cereal box pinataA small piñata uses fewer materials, takes way less time to make, and if you’re only inviting a few kids to the party (smart you!), then it’s plenty roomy enough to fill everyone’s goodie bags.

This mini piñata, tutorial courtesy of The Pumpkin Patch, uses one roll of crepe paper, one Spider-man napkin, and one cereal box. Heck, if your birthday kid is turning at least seven years old, she could probably make this herself.

As for you…you go out and buy yourself more Brie and cake!

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.
