DIY Pinatas www.ohcreativeday.comA few weeks ago, I wrote this post for Red Ted Art on how to make your own heart piñata.
It’s a great craft for some Valentine’s fun.
I have since been possessed by this insane belief that I can pretty much piñata ALL OF THE THINGS.

My sister celebrated the big 3-0 recently.
So, using WordArt in Microsoft Word,  I created a 30 outline and made a piñata.
I wrote 30 notes and stuffed them into the piñata.
The notes were IOU vouchers of sorts.
Things like…
IOU a milkshake at Daisy’s Milkbar.
IOU a session at No Lights, No Lycra.
IOU a meal at the Hello Kitty diner. (It’s a thing, people!)
Just lots of fun, random activities we can do together.

www.ohcreativeday.comIt happened to be an excessively windy day on my sister’s birthday which made piñata-smashing difficult.
So the piñata was taken down from the clothesline and whacked upon the grass.
Same same but different.

I now have this theory that if you can create a stencil using the shapes or fonts in Word’s ClipArt or WordArt, then you can make a piñata out of it.
Simply follow the steps in my tutorial for Red Ted Art.

Thank you to Spotlight for gifting all the tissue paper used in these piñata posts.

Do you piñata?
