Looking for a fun and thoughtful, yet totally last minute gift for Dad this Father’s Day? Then this mini tie homemade pinata is just what you need! Fill it with notes, sweet treats or even cash! Dad will certainly enjoy busting this mini gift open! I’m not going to lie, this homemade pinata does take about an hour to create, but I totally think it is worth it! It is super cute and the kids will think it’s pretty cool too.
- Printable Mini Tie Pinata Template
- Crepe Paper Streamers
- Hot Glue Gun
- Double Stick Tape
- Bone Folder Paper Folding Tool (optional)
- Yarn and/or Baker’s Twine
- Small Foam Ball
- Hole Punch
Using a small foam ball or other object, wrap 3 strands of yarn or twine around it several times and then braid a short tail, securing with a knot. Fill your homemade pinata with small goodies. Place the ball inside the pinata, with the tail hanging out the bottom slit.
Place the cover on and adhere the top to the bottom using double stick tape or hot glue.
Move up to the next row, overlapping the last streamer and repeat. Continue all the way to the top. I trimmed the first streamer to a point and also added streamers on the bottom sides and the top flap, ensuring the whole pinata was covered.
