I make little pinata for my events. Here is what I do: I draw out the design on cardboard with sharpie. Usually animals like the donkey and elephant on the slide below. Then I use the glue gun to seal the edges all together. To add color to the pinata, I painted the pinata all white so you don’t see the brown of the cardboard. After the paint has dried, I fold the tissue paper in half and cut vertical line to give the pinata a fringe look. Glue paper to the cardboard and done.
