DIY Mini Muppets Piñatas!

DIY-MINI-MUPPET-piñata Hey All! In honor of one of my favorite movies Muppets: Most Wanted coming out on Blu­ray Combo Pack and Digital HD August 12th at, I decided to make some Mini Muppet Piñatas! How else would we celebrate than with some confetti, candy and Piñatas! I love the way they came out and they weren’t that difficult to make. They did however take some time to make. To make these adorable Mini Muppet Piñatas you’ll need: supplies- piñata

  • Some Mini Shaped Cardboard boxes which I got on Oriental Trading
  • Peach, Orange, and Green Streamers or Crepe Paper
  • Pink, White, Orange, Red, and Black Card Stock
  • Orange feather Boa
  • Glue or Glue Stick
  • Whole Punches/ Or Craft Cutting Machine
  • Clear tape
  • Duck Tape
  • Scissors
  • Fringe Scissors
  • String
  • Candy
  • Awl tool

piñata-fringe First I started by making each piece that I’d need to assemble my Muppet Piñatas. I started by fringing all my streamers and crepe paper with my fringe scissors. Yes it does take some time depending on how full you want your Piñata fringe to look. I then punched out and cut all the circles, lines and ovals I’d need for the eyes, mouths, and noses. muppet-cutouts I got my Muppet candy out as what other candy would I use. Once I had everything ready I began to assemble my piñatas. muppet-candy I started with Beaker as he is probably the most difficult to make. I made sure the candy fit inside the box. I used a rectangular box as Beaker has an oval like face. muppet-candy-box You could then use your Awl tool to punch a whole into the the top of the box and pull a knotted string through. Or you can skip this step. You then seal the candy inside with some duck tape. seal-piñata Then you begin to glue on your fringe. You start at the bottom and work your way up. I use a combination of regular glue and a glue stick. You cover the entire box with fringe and let it dry for a few minutes. You then proceeded to glue on the eyes and nose. DIY-mini-beaker-pinata You then glue the eye dots, mouths, and feather hair on. I also used some clear tape to hold the feathers in place. That’s it your done with Beaker. With Kermit I did the same process except I did use the Awl to punch a hole at the top of the box so I could hang him. I also used a heart shaped box. You tie your string with a triple knot so the knot doesn’t pop through the hole you made. You then pull the string through the hole. After you got your string through, you place your candy inside, seal the box, and then proceed to fringe the box and add the eyes and mouth. DIY-kermit-mini-pinata For Fozzie I used a round box and did the same process I did for Kermit as I wanted to hang my Fozzie.
