There are only a couple simple supplies and a few easy steps that you need to make this DIY piñata costume.


  • Felt – Various Pinata Colors
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue
  • T-Shirt
  • Foam Cone
  • Headband


  1.  First, you want to start by cutting 2.5-inch strips of your sheet of felt. Make sure to cut lengthways for maximum coverage. Trust me it saves time.
  2. Next cut 0.5-inch to 1.0-inch slits halfway up into the felt strips. To create a fun fringe look.
  3. Take your shirt and layout each strip and apply a thin layer of hot glue to attach to the shirt.
  4. To make the horns, use the same concept by wrapping each fringe layer around the cone. Use hot-glue to secure them to the foam cone.
  5. Secure the horns to a headband to make the perfect pinata costume topper.

How to make a pinata costumeDIY Pinata CostumeA Few Tricks to Creating a Pinata Costume

  1. When making your dogs costume, sizing can be difficult. Lucky for us, this pooch is a big fella so he fit into a human shirt. But I recommend using a shirt made for dogs. I would also say it would be a good idea to size up. When you apply the strips to hot glue it doesn’t allow the shirt to stretch any longer, making fitting your pooch into the outfit a little more difficult.
  2. For your pinata costume, I would suggest just doing applying your fringe strips to the front of your costume. This helps it not feel so stiff and boxy.
  3. If you don’t want to use hot glue, iron-on tape to attach your fringe strips.
