Pinatas are a spring and summer party staple, but the big ones are time-consuming (and messy!) to make. Why not make minis? Party decor, party entertainmentcustomized gifts, party favors…;all in one! I will show you how to make a pinata that is quick and fun to make yourself!

The supplies are easy to gather! All you’;ll need is:

Start by cutting out the shape of your pinata. Any solid shape will do. I went with about a 4″; circle. Also cut strips that are the depth of your desired pinata and long enough to go all the way around the perimeter. Mine were about 3/4″; wide.

Punch a small hole into your edging strip. Thread your twine through and knot it to create a hanging loop.

Tape it securely.

Tape the strips at a 90 degree angle to your shapes.

Tape both sides all the way around, leaving just enough room to fill your mini pinata.

Loose treats or small packaged treats are equally useful here.

Then, seal it up with more tape!

Cut strips with your desired colors of tissue paper.

Fold the strips and cut fringe!

You want to apply the fringe from the outside working in, so start applying glue around the edge.

And then keep moving around toward the center.

Here, I’;ve switched from red around the edge to orange toward the center.

And yellow in the center. To finish the center of my pinata flower, I balled tiny bits of yellow tissue and glued them on.

Ta da! Ready to be used as a party favor, decoration, entertainment element or package topper!

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. This is such an easy project that would be great to do with children! You could even make mini versions if you need a group children’s craft.

While it's a bummer that summer is coming to an end, that doesn’t mean your flower collection has to. Flex your green thumb this autumn with these beautiful fall flowers and plants, all of which can withstand those chilly nights ahead and bring vibrant colors to any day. Which, speaking of: Give a nod to past warmer weather and vamp up your curb appeal this upcoming season with an assortment of cheery floral hues. You’ll absolutely love the purple berry-covered beautyberry (which undoubtedly lives up to its name), bright sunflower lookalikes heliopsis, and butterfly-attracting heleniums. Looking for stems that feel more seasonally appropriate? Not a problem. Instead, opt for the steely silver dusty miller bulb, or plant the white sweet autumn clematis in your garden for a fresh new flower that smells just as good as it looks. Better yet, you can also use fall to step up your farm-to-table game, thanks to durable plants like parsley and fresh rosemary. Don’t retire your gardening tools just yet, because these fall blooms absolutely need to make an appearance outside your home this year. Your landscape will love you, your neighbors will envy you, and you'll get to reap the rewards of your planting all fall long.
