Craft these adorable mini strawberry pinatas to give away as a party favor at your next summer soiree! These are a fun kids craft too!I’ve been wanting to make mini pinatas since I made the mini donkey pinatas, but I wanted to make some that were oh so much simpler – all the curves of the donkeys were just a tad monotonous for me, I really like “done in 5 minutes” crafts. So strawberries it is, a very simple, easy peasy shape.

Strawberry Pinatas

Craft these adorable mini strawberry pinatas to give away as a party favor at your next summer soiree! These are a fun kids craft too!Materials:
Paperboard (cereal boxes are perfect for this)
Red crepe paper
Green crepe paper
Double sided tape (I used 2.5 rolls of this)
Packing tape
Scissors

General assembly:

These are a fun kids craft too!Cut out a general strawberry shape from the paperboard (you’ll need two sides for each pinata), make as many strawberries as you need for your pinatas using the original shape so that they match. Cut out strips for the sides of your pinatas (it’s OK if they’re not continuous) Now take your strips and follow along the paperboard shape perpendicularly and tape as you go with packing tape. Go all the way around and, do your best to fit it to the form (it will not be perfect) use the tape to help pull things where they need to go. Give the pointier end of the strawberry a little pinch to lessen the strain on the tape.

Put the top on the strawberry and secure it down with the tape.

Crepe paper covering:
Cut out a long strip of crepe paper and fold it in half lengthwise.

With double sided tape, tape the folded strip of crepe paper on the edge of the fold to the tip of the strawberry.

These are a fun kids craft too!Move up along the edges of the of the strawberry overlapping the tape over the top half of the previous layer of crepe paper (this will insure that you won’t see the undersides of the pinata). Continue working on the sides of the pinata until the crepe paper can easily be wrapped around the entirety of the strawberry (you’ll know when the paper can be wrapped around the strawberry easily because there won’t be a lot of buckling at the corners when you wrap). Tape the wrapped crepe paper the same way you taped the smaller strips. Continue wrapping the crepe paper until it starts to buckle at the top of the berry and start working on the edges at the top until the strawberry is covered in paper. Add a few strips of the green crepe paper to the top of the strawberry for the leaves.

Now start planning a summer party so you can give these out as fun party favor – they even serve double duty as party decor!
