Hey Everyone! Valentines Day is right around the corner and I wanted to create a DIY sooner rather than later so you all can make it yourself! I have been wanting to make a Piñata for some time now and I thought it would be really perfect to make this cute Piñata conversation Heart.
Trace your templates on to the cardboard. You will need 2 of each template. Cut out very carefully using the xacto knife, you can also use your scissors if you like. When ever you are using the xacto knife make sure you cut on top of the cutting board.
Next on one side of the heart your going to place the hot glue on the edge of the inside of the heart and then place the rectangle card board that you shaped on top. Do the same for the opposite side.
Before we added the top portion of the heart to the Piñata cut a piece of twine, make a loop and tie the ends together. Place inside of the top of the heart and glue again to reinforce. If you want to put candy in the Piñata, this is the time to do so. To attach the other side of the heart put glue on the edge of the inside of the heart. Be careful not to burn yourself as you flip the heart and place on top of the bottom heart. Don’t worry if it does not fit perfect it will be covered by the tissue.
The next step is to cut the tissue. I folded the tissue a couple of times and the cut the strip about 2 inches in height. Leaving about 1/4 inch at the top I cut little strips with the xacto knife. You can also use scissor for cutting the tissue.
Now its time to place the tissue on the heart. Cut the tissue strips a little long then the length of the heart so it hangs a little over the sides. Starting at the bottom of the heart tape down the strip.
Now to start the sides. Cut the tissue strips the length of the side. If you are using our template we cut the 2.5 inches Start at the bottom of one side and continue as we did on the heart. Repeat on other side.
And thats it! Your adorable conversation Piñata is done! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and create a conversation pinata of your own. Be sure to post your recreations of this project with the hashtag #createCQ so I can see all of your beautiful creations!
Much love and Happy Valentines Day!
