Nothing livens up a party like violence and candy. All the better when it’s impeccably thematic. Paper mâché and cardboard are cheap and easy to work with. Master a few basic skills and you can make any kind of piñata you want.
Let’s examine the Pokémon piñata and the Mustang as an examples here, just because I took a lot of pictures in the process.
When making a piñata you have to consider more than just the way it looks. It has to:
1) have a sturdy anchor to hang/pull it from
2) be able to take just the right amount of punishment, so everyone gets a whack at it.
