I hope everyone had a great weekend. I’m sitting here right now watching the Grammy’s with my lovely husband. Eee! Excited! So far its had some great performances! Excited for the rest. Well as most of you know Valentine’s day is just around the the corner..Tuesday. This year I wanted to create something different instead of the tradition Valentine’s Day card. I was searching through the internet and found this amazing site called Oh Happy Day. She has some very different DIY posts and one of them was mini pinatas! So I thought this would be awesome to do for a Valentine’s day cards. Here is her tutorial.
Gather your supplies. You will need party streamers, and scissors. I found streamers at Target for $.99. Next you will need to find the item you will use to wrap the streamers around. I found paper mache hearts at Michaels for $1. In the tutorial that I had found she used cereal boxes and cut them out and taped them together. Next take your streamers and start folding them in half. Once you have folded them in half then cut into the streamers without going all the way through. So you have a fringe like texture. (As pictured in the first photo.)
After you have cut enough pieces of streamers for however many little hearts you plan to make you are now ready to begin. Lay out your items and start to making your mini pinatas!
Glue around the top of your item and start to place your streamers around on the area you glued.
Next glue under your first row and start to place your other color of streamer. And then keep repeating until you are satisfied with the number of rows you want.
And you have the final product!
Tomorrow is Monday..There will be no Mentoring Monday post, but get ready and stay tuned for a great Giveaway coming up this week!!!!! I hope you all have a great day! Now..Back to the Grammy’s!
