Silver & Gold Star Piñatas

Whenever I put silver and gold together, I can’t help but think of Christmas. Make these miniature star piñatas and fill them with all the silver and gold treats you can find – they’re everywhere this time of year! Wouldn’t it be fun to make these as party favors for an all silver and gold party this winter? (P.S. Even more metallic ideas!)

Supplies: Cardboard, silver and gold mylar or crepe paper, scissors, ruler, glue, string, tape, pencil, silver and gold treats.

Step 1: Draw a freehand star on the cardboard. Cut out and then trace and cut out an identical star. Cut strips 3/4″ wide.
Step 2: Use tape to attach the cardboard strip around one of the stars, folding the strip to fit around the stars points.
Step 3: Once the strip reaches where you started, let the strips overlap but instead of securing them together, fold and tape a small loop of string onto the flap. This will allow the piñata to be opened (instead of smashed) to release the treats inside.
Step 4: Tape on the second star and fill with silver and gold goodies. Use a small piece of tape to keep the flap closed for now.
Step 5: Cut your crepe/mylar into fringed strips about 1″ wide.
Step 6: Tape a loop of string onto the piñata to be used for hanging.
Step 7: Starting from the bottom of the star, use white glue to attach the fringe onto the cardboard.
Step 8: Cover both sides of the piñata and let dry for a few minutes.
Step 8: Carefully use scissors to cut away the overhanging fringe.
Step 9: Glue more fringe around the sides of the star being careful around the trapdoor. Let dry for a few minutes.
Step 10: Cut away the excess fringe from the sides.

    We don’t say “bonne Noël” but “joyeux Noël” or “bonne année” = happy new year !

    Merry Christmas ! Celine
