Paper Mache recipe #4
For piñatas - cover a large balloon with the paper mache paste. When dry cut a 2" x 2" hole in the top of the piñata cutting only 3 sides and leaving one side attached as a hinge. Pop the balloon and discard. Decorate the piñata. Fill with wrapped candies and small toys. Close and tape the hole closed. Attach a string to hold the piñata by drilling two holes in the top and threading a heavy string or small rope through the holes.
Dip newspaper strips into paper mache mixture and wipe off excess by pulling the strip gently between two fingers. Lay strips onto blown up balloons (perfect for piñatas), 2 liter bottles, milk jugs, etc.
Continue layering the strips until the object is covered in up to 4 layers of newspaper. Let dry completely - this will usually take 2 - 3 days.
Paint outside of object with acrylic paints or glue on squares of colorful tissue paper.
Make this easy pinata by using paper mache over a balloon and then decorating it with layers of round tissue paper or, even easier, paper cupcake liners.
