Make Fringe

Take 2 to 3 feet of crepe paper at a time and fold into fourths. Cut strips, leaving a seam on one side.

Attach Fringe

Apply craft glue on the seam and attach fringe one layer at a time, starting at the bottom of the legs and working your way up to the piñata's neck (image 1). To create a saddle, drape crepe paper along the sides, filling in as needed (image 2).

Change Fringe Direction

Once the piñata is covered up to the neck, change directions and wrap the head starting at the nose.
