Big Mario Bros Star piñata
This is the Mario Bros Star Piñata I did for one of my friends b-day!

You Will Need

Large and round balloon, newspaper, homemade glue, carton and yellow silk paper
  • Step 1

    Blow a balloon as large as it will go. Grab a bowl that your balloon will fit on top of and cover it with plastic wrap. Set the balloon on top of the bowl.

  • Step 2

    Tear several newspaper pages into strips. You will need a lot. By tearing the newspaper into strips instead of cutting them, they will lay flatter on the balloon.

  • Step 3

    Dip the newspaper strips into the homemade glue. Remove any extra glue on the newspaper piece by running it through your pinched fingers. Spread the newspaper onto the balloon. Continue this, making the strips go in all different directions, until your balloon is completely covered. Make sure you leave a small hole on the end where the balloon is tied so you can remove the balloon and fill the pinata. Let the first layer dry.

  • Step 4

    Add two or three more layers of paper mache to your balloon. Allow each layer to dry completely before putting on the next layer. Once it is dry, pop the balloon and remove it through the opening you left.

    You can now decorate your piñata!
