Anyway back to the pinata. I wanted to make one with strings as we have had somewhat unsuccessful fun with shop bought bashing ones in the past. So here is what I did to make this years much more successful (fingers crossed) pinata;
you will need:
1 large empty crisp box
several sheets of tissue paper in your colour scheme, I used lilac and pink
2 empty pringles tubes
string/ curling ribbon
Take one empty crisp box (not required that you eat them all to empty, but you can if you like). I then cut 2 pringles tubes in half length ways, so that I had each tube as a semi circle. Stick this in place on the side of the box using sellotape to form the turrets. Cover the whole thing in the tissue paper. I used three layers to cover over the print on the box.
On the underside of the box cut a flap before placing the last piece of tissue paper on, at this stage do not completely glue down this sheet of tissue paper you will need to be able to pull strings through it soon. Make a whole in the flap big enough to thread your string through.
thread your string through the hole
