Bunny Pinata


Who doesn’t love a pinata!? The best part is filling pinatas with candy and of course, eating it. This DIY Bunny Pinata that I'm sharing from (Lovely Indeed) is gonna keep you and your helper busy for a couple of hours.


Supplies

-Cardboard

-Scissors (Kid-friendly)

-Pencil

-Masking tape

-Crepe/tissue paper

-White Glue sticks

-Cardstock (Black, Pink and Tan)


Step by Step


1. You will need to cut out two bunny face shapes. Cut out one face first, then trace that one onto more cardboard and cut it out. Poke a hole through the top of each face piece so that you have a place to insert a rope for hanging the piñata.

2. Cut 4″ strips of cardboard for the edge of the piñata. Start by fitting them around one face piece, bending and molding them to the shape of the face. Then begin taping them together with strips of masking tape placed around the area where the edges meet.

3. Tape the other face piece in the same way so that you have a completed piñata shape. Leave a flap open on the top of one ear to be able to put candy and toys inside. Leave this flap untaped but able to tuck under the other side of the ear so that it looks closed.

4. Start to create fringe on your crepe paper or tissue paper. If you’re using tissue paper, you’ll need to cut it into strips first. Fold the strips accordion-style and use scissors to cut fringe on one side of the tissue paper, about halfway up the height of the paper. Then unfold and you should have a long strand of fringe.

5. Start covering your piñata! Start placing fringe at the bottom and work your way upward. Apply a line of glue stick down, place a row of fringe to it, and trim the ends so that they’re even with the edges of the piñata.

6. Add the face! Cut pink ears and glue them on the ear areas. Then two little black eyes. Use a tan oval for the mouth and cut a black nose, smile, and whiskers. Glue all these on with glue stick.

7. Fill with candy and toys through the flap in the ear and insert a rope through the holes in the upper head. Tie the rope at the top, toss one end over a tree limb, and let the kids go for it!




I hope you all enjoyed these DIY Easter Projects. If you do decide to try these out, please tag me on your post. I’d love to see how your projects came out. I will be sharing more DIY’s and so much more, so stay tuned!❤️


XOXO,

Hi Guys, welcome to my new website! This has been long overdue and I knew my first blog post on my website had to be about our wonderful little boy, Antonio. I cannot believe he's already 1 years old. Time sure has flown by this year. I tried very hard to not go overboard when I was planning his 1st birthday party, especially because my husband kept reminding me everyday to take it easy...lol


Antonio's birthday party was such a success, everything from the decor, food and all of our closest friends and family members that came to help celebrate his birthday with us, thank you for all of your support. We truly feel blessed and this is one special little boy that's loved by many.


We went with a Baseball theme for his party. Take a peak into his birthday party.




Food:

You guys my friend Addie from Luxe Appel is seriously the BEST CHEF ever! She never fails me and event when I text her a week before any event I'm planning, still very much unprepared she always says to me, "Don't worry I got it. I have some ideas I'll send to you." She always comes through and goes above and beyond. I can't wait to share more about her with you guys. FYI- this chef does NOT mess around. She trained at Le Cordon Bleu and is an expert at what she does!






Balloons:

Okay, I highly recommend Ballooms (clever name huh?!). They always show up and assemble all the balloons so quickly. They seriously make it look so easy, which I know it is not! I love adding a bunch of balloons as my main decor. I think it elevates the ambiance and takes the stress off of me.




Pinata & Other decor:

I teamed up with Feliz Modern, they're a really cute local boutique here in San Antonio. They did such a great job with our piñata, especially how they matched our theme for Antonio's Birthday. You seriously need to visit their store, (be prepared to spend along time in their store because they have cutest decorations and accessories). If you're not local, don't worry they have an online shop too! b



Here are some pictures from his 1st Birthday Photoshoot. It was so hard just selecting a handful because he's so dang cute! Enjoy!







XOXO,

Annabel
