DIY Elsa Pinata


My daughter is turning 5 in March and she wants a Frozen party. I am excited to begin my decor and make her party memorable because party planning, DIY, and decor are some of my favorite things. First I knew she wanted a pinata, I am not going to spend $25 on a piece of cardboard the kids are going to smash open anyways. So I went on and created my very own Elsa pinata. Here's how:


Take a cardboard box and make a pyramid out of it. You can use hot glue or tape to secure it, you are also going to be using glue to hold the tissue paper on top, so it will have a strong hold eventually.


Next begin making small slits in your tissue paper roughly an inch apart but do any size you like. You then need to cut strips about an inch above where the slits stop.


Start from the bottom and work your way up pasting the strips all the way around the pyramid, overlapping as you go. 


When your finished you will have something like this to be her dress. Mine is not quite complete yet I had to order some blue tulle to be her cape and some snowflake stickers to place all around her dress but other then that this is the hardest part. 


I'm not one to brag but I am a bit of an artist so I decided to draw my own Elsa for her pinata top.You can easily just print one and glue it some some cardboard so it works. I drew mine on a white cardboard box and then colored it and cut it out. 


That will be your top of the pinata you just glue to the top after you fill it with candy. 


And that's it. This beautiful pinata that is going to be smashed to bits cost me exactly $3.50 for the tissue paper, tulle (not shown), and snowflake stickers (not shown).

I love love love her idea on how to make indoor snowballs with egg cartons. I am definitely going to have to try that with my kiddos since my smallest one has decided that it has to snow for Christmas. Poor baby doesn't know snow is hard to come by in Alabama :( For my guest post I wanted to share a little DIY with you guys that involves duct tape! A few months ago my daughter's little chair that goes with her table she sits at every day tore and she made it worse by pulling all of the stuffing out of the seat!

She loved her seat so much that she has now decided that her table has look cool too so being the smarty pants that she is, she tore her table!
