DIY Mini Wreath Piñatas

Mini piñatas?  Yes, please!  I just about wet myself (Just kidding. Maybe.) when I saw that We R Memory Keepers was releasing DIY mini piñata kits.  I got a chance to play with the circle piñata kit and, with the holidays in mind, thought I would alter the boxes a bit to create DIY Mini Wreath Piñatas.

These We R Memory Keepers DIY Party mini piñatas have been my favorite holiday craft to make so far.  They were so stinkin' fun and easy to make!  I started with a circle shaped boxes, made a couple of cuts, and wrapped them with pre-made adhesive fringe tape.  Seriously, so easy.  

Each mini wreath piñata measures 5" across which makes them perfect party favors, gifts, or even Christmas ornaments.

Going for a retro mod look?  Wrap a circle piñata with white fringe tape and embellish with multicolored confetti.  DIY mini wreath piñatas are kid friendly, too.  My 9 year-old daughter was eager to help glue the dots to this wreath.

And don't forget to fill your piñatas with delicious treats.  Yum!  (But only if you want kids tearing your nice crafts to shreds.)  Left empty, they also make perfectly pretty holiday décor. 




How to Make Mini Wreath Piñatas

DIY Mini Wreath Piñatas Tutorial
To make a mini wreath piñata, start by cutting a 2 1/2" circle from scrap cardstock.  Trace the circle in the center on both sides of the circle box

Using a sharp craft knife, cut around the circle on both sides of the box.  Don't worry if it isn't perfect.  You'll be covering it with fringe tape.  And you'll still be able to stuff it with candy and confetti, too.

Begin wrapping fringe tape around the circle, creating a snug fit, but not pulling so tightly that you pinch the two sides of the circle together.  TIP: If you want to hang the wreath as an ornament or other holiday decor, tie a string to through the holes before you start wrapping with the fringe tape.

Fill with candy (or other surprises) when you are have a 2-3" opening left in the wreath.  Continue wrapping with fringe tape until the wreath is complete.
