Take 2 to 3 feet of crepe paper at a time and fold into fourths. Cut strips, leaving a seam on one side.
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.
Start from scratch with this paper lantern by making the paper first, then assembling the tea light lighted structure.
