DIY Witch’s Hat Piñatas

10/16/2012

I’ve decided I’m going to create a piñata for every major holiday, plus a few non-major ones, because I just love them that much! I was recently given the opportunity to test out some Aleene’s glue and adhesives and they were the perfect jumping off point for holing together this Halloween version, witch’s hat piñatas! I made mine mini-sized but you certainly could make a larger version if you so please. The best part about these is they’re reusable! That’s right now smashing involved. Let’s get to craftin’!

If you want a loop to hang your piñata from, cut a length of ribbon tie it into a loop and carefully poke it through the top of your hat. The knot should be large enough so it doesn’t pull through. Then use a hot glue gun to glue your hat to it’s brim.
