This Pinata costume was a time consuming costume to make but it was worth all the fun I had wearing it. I used to have Pinatas at all my birthday parties. I just love the colors they are made of and Pinatas always make people remember happy days!
To make the costume I just took an old cardboard box, cut some holes for my head and arms. I used a shoe box to make my head piece. To keep the shoebox on my head I hot glued in a baseball cap into the inside of the shoebox. That way the box stayed securely on my head. I then took crepe paper and cut little slits along the edge. At first I glued down the paper strips but then I changed over to scotch tape to get the paper strips all over the box, much faster and easier! I also hot-glued candy all over my shirt. Beware people might want to smack you around in hopes some candy falls out!!
