I made this Zombie Pinata out of a cardboard box, some tape, and some crepe streamer!!! It was super cheap and it was actually pretty easy.
*First I took my box apart so I could use the flat pieces of cardboard.
*Then I used the cardboard and tape to get the pinata in the shape I wanted it in, you can fool around with it til you get it to your desired shape. Make sure you put the string in the top before you put it completely together, to save yourself trying to get your hands back in it again.
*Cut a small square in the top of your zombies head to put candy inside, but dont cut the entire square out, just 3 sides. And you can fold back the last side so you can close the hole back after putting candy in it.
*Now take the crepe’ streamer (which is super cheap) and take scissors and cut little strips a little more then half way up. I used green for the zombies face and black for the zombies hair.
*We are gonna work our way up from the bottom to the top. Tape a strip of the cut up streamer on the very bottom part of the pinata & work your way up one strip at a time one layer at a time.
*Add slit pieces of black to the top and top front of the zombie to look like hair, make sure to cut it around the hole so you can still put candy.
*I took some of the black streamer & made a mouth & eyes. Then I used regular white computer baby to add the white in the eyes and the teeth. I just hand drew them & cute them out & taped them on, so you can draw them however you want them.
*I used red paint and smeared it on the pinata’s mouth to make it look more Zombie-ish.
& That’s it. It would be much easier to explain if you could see what I was doing, so for a full tutorial with pictures check out my blog here: http://hillbillyprincessdiaries.blogspot.com/2012/09/diy-zombie-pinata.html
