If you're anything like us, just hearing the phrase "tiny pinatas" makes you squeal a little bit (if only inside your head; after all, you've got your dignity to maintain). We discovered these instructions, culled from a back issue of Martha Stewart Living
and reworked, over at Not Martha, and we immediately thought of a dozen uses for them: from birthday party loot bags to covers for a string of LED fairy lights.
All you need are tiny party balloons, laundry starch, a small paintbrush, tissue paper, and a shot glass to rest the balloon on while you work. Admittedly, the degree of precision -- not to mention patience -- required make this craft more suitable for older kids, but we think people of all sizes will be thrilled with the results.
