Attach Rope

At the top of the piñata, leave a gate open and attach rope for hanging. Fill with treats before sealing with tape.

Create Cones for Ears

Trace a circle onto poster board using a large bowl. Cut it out and then cut into two halves. Twist to form a long cone (image 1), and secure them with packaging tape. Attach to piñata's head (image 2).

Attach Tissue Paper for Feet

Take two pieces of tissue paper and wrap the bottom of the piñata's feet, securing with masking or packing tape.
