Halloween Piñata Boxes

1600LEADbHalloween Pinataa_23Pumpkins and Ghosts,  in the form of Halloween Piñata Boxes,  that I think could be invited to any Halloween party. I made Ghosts and Pumpkin Halloween Piñata Boxes with a crafting kids group and no one wanted to stop.  These are both piñatas and containers so that they can be used in multiple ways: as a piñata, as a decoration, or for storage.

Let’s get started making:

This is what you’ll need:

Materials:

  • Crepe Paper in White or Orange
  • Scissors and Fringing Scissors (like this), if you have a pair* 
  • Box (Recycled box, such as a pasta box)
  • Glue (Regular craft glue, hot glue gun and glue sticks all work)
  • Construction paper.

HOW TO

  • 1. Start by fringing paper.
  • If you’ve never fringed paper before, starting from one side of your length, snip up to close to the upper edge but, don’t cut through. If you have a fringing scissors, use it! These give such a professional look and save time; but, I made due with a regular scissors for years and this will work.
  •  Once you have lengths of fringe, begin to glue this around your box.
  • This is important: Place the open end of your box down, if you’d like to use it later for storage.
  • If you’d like to have it open on top, place the open end up.
  • Apply fringe from the bottom and work your way up.

  •  Once the sides are covered, place fringe on the top.
  • When your box is fully fringed,  it’s time to embellish faces.
  • Ghost: Use black paper to cut two eyes and a mouth.
  • Pumpkin: Cut 2 eyes, nose, mouth (and I couldn’t resist cheeks)
