Geometric Piñata DIY

I have a love of geometric forms that extends back to my first sculpting assignment in high school, so I’ve been admiring the whole geometric piñata thing from afar for awhile. When I finally had a reason to throw a party, I jumped at the chance to make one. Or two. I won’t lie, it was an investment of a few hours, but the materials are cheap, and the reward was some good clean fun. When was the last time you took a whack at a piñata?

You’ll need…

• cardboard from large boxes
• masking tape
• ruler
• craft or utility knife
• craft glue
• old paintbrush
• 1 package of colored tissue or crepe paper
• 15-25 feet of rope
this triangle template we created for you

Note: If you’re up to the challenge of a more complicated construction, like the blue piñata in the top photo, do an internet search for “polyhedra templates,” print out one that strikes your fancy, then enlarge it on a copy machine to use as a guide.
