Holiday fun this way

pinatas

Confetti and candy packaged in sweet little pinatas make great daily advent treats. The paper mache pinata balls are simple to craft and you can re-use them year after year; just re-fill and re-close.

To make the pinata balls use small balloons, Mod Podge and tissue paper (here is a step-by-step on making the paper mache balls). I found three coats of paper to be perfect for this project. Leave a small hole at the base of the balloon and once dry pop the balloon and remove it through the hole. Fill the empty balls with confetti, candy and festive string before finishing off with one last layer of tissue paper to close up the hole.

Line the balls with ribbon or thread, and each day pull a new string! It’s a fun way to count down the days.
