All the Pretty Ladies…

Mini Pinata 4

And handsome mariachi guys, too!

My family had a ball making these mini piñatas last night for our Family Home Evening activity. The instructions can be found here (dancing girls) and here (band). I bought tissue paper at Target in the party goods section. There was a pack with lots of colors, including black and I had to buy a pack with several pinks as well. There’s enough tissue in the one multicolor pack to make a bazillion mini piñatas!

The idea and tutorial came from the amazing blog Hideous! Dreadful! Stinky! These tutorials were outstanding! We only made one minor change - we drew on the eyelashes and lips with fine point Sharpies because they were too difficult and tiny for us to cut from tissue paper.

This project took longer than I had planned, naturally, but was well worth the effort. We originally decided to each choose a friend to whom we wanted to give our piñatas, but, alas, the idea of giving these away was too much! That’s okay – everyone loudly insisted we make a new one every year. I think we will be better prepared to part with our creations next time around.

Don’t these make you feel festive?
What fun activities do you have planned for the holiday? I’d love to hear about it in the comments.
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
