A Halloween Party Piñata
Piñatas bring fun to any party, and Halloween is no exception. They are also fun to make and the whole family can get involved. This ghoulish ghost piñata will make sure your Halloween festivities go with a bang.
What You Will Need
Newspaper, torn into strips
PVA glue and water (3 parts glue to one part water mixed well)
A pair of scissors
Selection of Halloween sweets such as Haribo Giant Happy Cherries
Black Felt, or a Black Marker Pen like a Sharpie
A piece of string
Blow up the balloon and tie to secure.
Dip the strips of newspaper in the glue/water mix and lay onto the surface of the balloon. (This will form the ghost’s head).
Continue until the balloon is fully covered.
Leave to dry for a few hours and then add a further layer of newspaper strips to the balloon, then leave overnight to dry.
The next day, get a needle and pop the balloon.
Cut a small hole in the back of the ghost’s head and place your sweets inside. Then, cover the hole with strips of glue and newspaper and leave to dry.
Once dry, paint the newspaper surface with white paint and again, leave to dry.
Take 3 or 4 sheets of white tissue paper and glue them to the base of the head to make the ghost’s floaty body.
Cut several of sheets of white tissue paper into strips and glue these horizontally from the head base and work your way upwards.
To finish the head, cut a circle of tissue paper and glue onto the top of the head.
If you are using black felt, cut out two eyes, a nose and a mouth and glue onto the ghost’s head. Alternatively create the ghoulish face using a black marker pen.
Pierce two small holes into the top of the head and thread through a piece of string and hang up your ghost piñata.
