Well, it’s officially autumn aka #PSLseason. It is also Hispanic Heritage Month. If you’re new around here, I am an art teacher by day. I like to celebrate various cultural arts & crafts with my students. These easy paper bag pinatas were a huge hit at back to school night. These almost-too-easy-pinatas are made with simple household items. I love making projects like these because the kids can create their own at home.
Every now and then, I whip up crafty fun projects that I need to share with you. Because HOW cute are these things?!
Paper bag pinata decorations can be as big or small as you want depending on the size of the paper bag that you choose to use. These would be adorable in ombre pink or blue for baby shower decorations or for that Cinco De Mayo party you’ve been wanting to throw since last May.
You will need:
- Tissue paper
- a glue stick
- paper bag
- hole punch
- string to hang
- Cut the tissue paper into 2″ strips. The length will depend on how wide your paper bag is. You will want it to fit. It doesn’t have to be perfect, you can always go back and trim the strip down if it hangs over.
- To make the fringe, make your cuts about half-way up like this.
- Starting from the bottom of the bag, use a glue stick to attach the tissue paper strip. Make sure to glue just the top half of the strip and NOT the fringe.
- Repeat on all sides!
- Stuff & hang
If you are in the pinata mood, check out this mini donkey pinata from Urban outfitters lol! How cute is this?!
