Get the Party Started: Homemade Piñata

Oh Happy Day

Nothing gets a party going like the fun and excitement of a piñata. Kids and adults alike delight in the tradition, and it will surely help break the ice at a holiday party. The creatives behind the blog Oh Happy Day show how you can put one together yourself, choosing anything you like for the prizes inside.

The team at Oh Happy Day explains:

This moon piñata can work two ways. Of course you can hang fill it with candy, but you can also just use it as a decoration. This technique of making a piñata (instead of paper mache) goes so quick and has a lot less mess. When I'm making a piñata like this I usually add the fringe while I'm watching a movie. It's mindless work but is really relaxing.
