Eighth Day of Christmas

my true love gave to me

A pinata for Smashing

We love pinata's. But this is the first one I have made for Christmas. I saw this idea at the beginning of the year and have been hanging onto it ever since.

We did the basic ~ cover a balloon with newspaper strips and clag glue ~

Then I painted it gold. Then I used a hot glue gun to glue Tinsel all over. I basically used a continuous string of tinsel just going up down/ back forth. Add a ribbon to the top ~

It is meant to look like a Christmas bauble??? Was I successful?

We will fill it with small plastic toys and lollies and looking forward to smashing it open with our cousins on Christmas Day.

Shiny. I am sure the kids will enjoy it.

Love this one. Let's be clear on the rules though, christmas baubles are not for smashing! Except this big shiny gold one.
