Kraft Paper Easter Egg Piñata

DIY Kraft Paper Easter Egg Piñata @themerrythoughtStill looking for some Easter activities for your festivities this weekend? String one of these Easter Egg Piñatas up and the kiddos will be thrilled! It’s quick and fun to make. I used some kraft paper to add a more muted, natural feel to it. I know it’s hard not to go for crazy, cutesy colors everywhere for Easter, but I wanted something that would fit in at my apartment until we use it on Sunday! You could even just keep it as holiday decor if you can’t bear to see it destroyed.
DIY Kraft Paper Easter Egg Piñata @themerrythought What you need:
-Kraft Paper
-Paint & Paintbrush

How to make it:
-To make the paste, mix 1 cup of flour with 2 cups of water.
-Cut up a bunch of strips of the kraft paper. (I used packing paper from Dollar Tree because it is a lot thinner than the packing paper I usually buy.) Blow up the balloon and tie it off. Dip the strips into the paste and slide it between your fingers to remove excess paste. Start applying them around the balloon. Be sure to cover all of the balloon. Let the first layer dry and then repeat for a second layer.
-Once everything is dry, pop and remove the balloon. You may need to cut the hole in the top a little wider to fit the candy in.
-Poke a hole on two sides of the hole on top (I used a nail) and then push your string through one. Pull it through the hole and tie a secure knot in it and then pull it back out so the knot it inside of the piñata. Repeat with the other end of the string in the second hole. Use more paste and kraft paper to seal off the hole once the candy is inside. And let it dry.
-Paint your design on and then hang it up and watch it get destroyed 😉
