DIY Piñatas

Lately they’ve been all over the place: piñatas. Today’s post is about this phenomenon that originally comes from China (and not from Mexico as is often thought).

There’s been a piñata-mania on Pinterest recently, it seems like they’re making a comeback. This one above I encountered on studiodiy.com. Just amazing, don’t you think?

A piñata is a bright coloured figure usually made of paper mache filled with candy, confetti and, sometimes, small gifts. On Christmas and birthdays, children (and adults who haven’t lost their childishness) are blindfolded, and hit the piñata until it breaks and a plethora of sweets and confetti falls on them.

Below you will find some awesome examples…
