Hold onto your troll party hats because here’s another fab reuse DIY I created for the kiddo’s Troll-themed birthday extravaganza:
(take a peek at all of my groovy scrapbusting-recycle bin b-day makes here)
Raid your recycle bin and paper stash and get making an Upcycled Cereal Box Fuzzbert Troll Pinata for your next hilarious party!
Grab an empty cereal box, tape, scissors and tissue paper. (any colourful paper will do)
Remove the front and back panels from the box and sketch your simple Fuzzbert pinata shape onto one of them.
Pop the pieces together and cut out the shape.
Grab a couple of the remaining side pieces of the cereal box and bend them into a rounded shape. (dragging the cardboard back & forth/over & under the edge of a table works fab!)
Attach the rounded pieces together to form the curved sides of your Fuzzbert.
Attach the back of the pinata to the side pieces – the looser the sides are attached the easier it will be to break the finished pinata.
Then flip it over…
and attach the front.
Fill the nearly done pinata with treats.
Chop the tissue paper into thick strips and then cut an even-ish fringe along the length of the strips.
Wrap and attach the strips around the pinata until it is completely covered.
Stuff the open top with the leftover paper scraps.
Add some sturdy yarn or string through the top for hanging.
Create some Fuzzbert feet out of the remaining cereal box bits and go hang it up!
To create a fab pinata bat snag an empty sturdy cardboard tube, paper and tape.
Wrap the paper around the cardboard tube.
I also rolled an old, torn gift bag around the tube for extra fanciness.
Securely wrap the tube with tape and your DIY pinata bat is ready for action!
Pop a blindfold on your party guests and get batting that pinata!
Be sure to get out of the way of charging kiddos when the pinata finally breaks!
