Nothing says summer like seeing a fresh watermelon. If you’re having a summer kick-off party, why not have it themed appropriately with a watermelon piñata? Whether you have a birthday coming up or are just planning to throw a fun summer bash, you’re definitely going to want to treat your guests to this cool and unique candy-filled piñata.
- Mix of candy
- cardboard box
- craft knife
- Duct tape
- Crepe paper (red, green, black)
- Glue stick
Step 1: First, cut out all of your cardboard pieces. Start by using a pencil and ruler to trace out a large watermelon slice shape. Cut this shape out and use it as a template for the other side of your piñata.
Step 4: Row by row start gluing your fringe to the cardboard all the way around. Begin with about 4 rows of green crepe paper for the bottom edge of the watermelon, and then switch over to the red crepe paper.
Step 5: Before you wrap all the way to the top, begin adding your candy and confetti inside the piñata. Close the flap of the cardboard with duct tape, and continue wrapping the rest of the piñata with crepe paper.
Step 7: String through the top of the piñata to hang it outside and break it!
That’s it, you’re all set for a fun summer bash! You can also make a few more piñatas to hang up as decoration.
