Bunny Piñata Tutorial
Hippity hop this bunny is ready to pop! Create this cute bunny piñata for your Easter festivities complete it with mini carrot piñatas too! I think piñatas are great for any season or holiday plus there's so many ways and shapes you can make. How awesome are these carrots and bunny head? There's something really intriguing about piñatas perhaps it's the layers of fringe that create an interesting and pleasing texture to the eyes, or perhaps it's the mystery of what lies inside? It could be the thought of how much fun the kids will have whacking it, they really do have a sense of attraction to "violence" haha but I believe a whack at a piñata is a fine way of letting out a healthy dose of satisfying this need.
Uh I have every intention of keeping these piñatas fully intact, just so ya know!
Here's a quick tutorial on how I made this piñata, I did not make it with papier mâché this time, I used a cardboard box from all that online ordering we do in my house, there surely isn't a shortage of boxes so why not use 'em. So technically this project is partially a recycled one.
Step 1. First you'll want to create your patterns for the bunny and carrot. Fold a piece of paper in half and draw one half of your pattern on the fold, then cut it out.
Step 2. Trace the pattern onto the cardboard, you'll need two pieces for each piñata.
Step 3. Cut a long strip of cardboard about 1.5 inches wide. You might need several of these.
Step 4. Glue the strip along the edges of the bunny vertically, remember to leave a portion unglued if you want to fill it up with candy. Continue all around the edges.
Step 5. At this point you may want to thread some string in your piñata if you'd like to hang it.
Step 6. Glue the second shape on top.
Step 7. Cut strips of tissue paper at 1.5 inches, then cut fringe in it as well. You can do this with a regular scissor or use a hand shredding scissor.
Step 8. Glue fringe along the side of the piñata then start at the bottom of the piñata and glue on the fringe horizontally until you cover the whole thing.
Step 9. Add any kind of facial features you'd like.
Have an egg-mazing time making your piñatas!
