DIY Fruity Pebbles Filled Popsicle Piñata!

DIY Fruity Pebbles Popsicle Pinata

Hey All!

Summer is still very much here and we love staying indoors to get our craft on. It helps up to keep ourselves entertained, while we keep cool when it’s scorching outside. During this time we always think of great ways to re-purpose and recycle items that we normally would just throw out. Like our cereal boxes for example. There is so much you can do with those cereal boxes, like make a cute DIY Fruity Pebbles Filled Popsicle Piñata! Think outside the box and give new life to your Post Fruity Pebbles Cereal boxes by transforming it into something spectacular & fun! These are not only easy to make, they are filled with one of the most awesome tasty cereals around! Who says you have to only fill a piñata with candy? Cereal works just as good and is just as tasty! I’ve been eating Fruity Pebbles cereal since I was a kid and it’s the perfect colorful confetti like cereal to put inside a piñata. Enjoying a bowl of Fruity Pebbles energizes you and unleashes your inner kid, opening up a world of creative possibilities. That’s exactly how I came up with this fun DIY!

To make this fun little foodie piñata, you’ll do the following.

DIY Fruity Pebbles Popsicle Pinata Step 2

First you’ll cut up your empty Fruity Pebbles Cereal box into 7 pieces. The front and back of the box will be the main body of the popsicle piñata. The long sides of the box will be the middle of the piñata. The bottom of the box will be the bottom of the popsicle piñata and two piece cut of the front and back pieces of the box will become the popsicle stick for the piñata.

After you’ve cute your box pieces, you’ll then cut your crepe and mylar piece to fringe. You’ll cut 6.5 inch pieces for the body and 2 inch pieces for the sides and popsicle stick. You can always cut down your paper after you glue it on to your piñata, so it doesn’t have to be exact.

You then cut and fringe all your cut pieces. This is what takes the longest time!

After you’re done with all the fringing, you then build your popsicle piñata by duck taping all the piece together like so.

Before you completely seal up your popsicle piñata, use your awl to make a hole at the top and pull a knotted ended piece of string through the top of the piñata. This is what you’ll use to hang your piñata. You’ll also fill your piñata with your yummy Post Fruity Pebbles Cereal too! You seal it all up and begin to glue on your fringe pieces. You’ll want to cover the entire piñata with your fringe on every side. Once you’re done gluing on your fringe paper, you’ll let it dry over night.

Once it’s dry, It’s ready to play with!

You can also just leave it as a decoration as well. Who doesn’t love a cute popsicle piñata just hanging around?! I know I do!

I love how cute and fun this was to make and I also love how the mylar makes the piñata bling when light hits it.

  • This is very cute and I like the idea of re-purposing the box, but to put loose cereal in a pinata doesn’t make sense to me. Once the kids break it open the cereal is going to fall all over the ground and no one will eat it; that part is wasteful.

    • Hi Tam, this DIY is mainly for after the cereal is done, but if anyone decides to fill it with cereal, only about a handful would fit in this pinata. And also if you put down some paper towels or something clean down on the floor you plan to the open the pinata on, the cereal will fall on a clean surface and the kids can pick up the cereal and eat it along with any candy you put inside. This will also help with clean up time in general. Those are just my tips! Or you can just make the pinata and not fill it with cereal. So glad you like the idea and hope you can figure out a way to make it work best for you!
