Mini Heart Piñata

Valentine’s Day is tomorrow!  Today, we are sharing a fun little Heart Piñata that can be made quick, filled with some tiny treats, and given to your friends and family.  Who doesn't love a piñata?








Supplies Needed:

Mini Cardboard Hearts...we purchased ours from Hobby Lobby for $1.00.
Scissors
Crepe Paper...either plain or mylar will work.
Goodies to fill your piñata
X acto knife

Step 1

Cut off a 3/4 inch section of crepe paper.  You can use mylar or plain crepe paper. Cut fringe evenly spaced on one side of the crepe paper leaving it folded to save time and get even cuts. Unravel it so it is ready to glue.







Step 2

Starting at the bottom of the heart, run a line of glue horizontally across the heart, and adhere your fringe.  Repeat this, gluing strip by strip.  Work your way all the way up to the top of the heart overlapping the fringe as you go.  Trim off the excess paper hanging off the sides.  Turn over the heart, and do the other side the same way.

Step 3

Make a small hole in the back of the heart with your x acto knife and fill with your goodies and fun notes.  You an also do this before you fringe.  Either way will work.  






Step 4

Your Valentine will love the treats inside!  Push down the open flap, and smooth out the fringe. 





Add a name or a cute message using some wash tape.




This is how it looks using mylar paper
