The force is strong with this pinata!

If you're a hardcore Star Wars fan like us, this pinata is perfect for you! This Death Star piñata is actually fairly simple to make and the material can be easily found in your house or any store too!


Let's get down to business!


What you'll need:

  • Beach ball  
  • Gray spray
  • Newspaper cut into stripes  
  • Paper mache glue mix. 

And now, to the steps:

  • Step 1: Mix half the glue/water.
  • Step 2: Rip the newspaper in strips and dip them in the glue/water mix
  • Step 3: Apply the first layer over the balloon. Each layer needs to dry completely before moving to the next. 
  • Step 4: Draw where the super laser will be by using a cup or glass.
  • Step 5: Cut out the super laser hole with a knife.
  • Step 6: Pinch the balloon to deflate it and pull it out.
  • Step 7: Pain the structure with the gray spray
  • Step 8: Start painting details with a marker.
  • Step 9: Take the cut out and turn it upside down. Paint it with the gray spray and draw additional details.
  • Step 10: Now it's time to fill the pinata with candy and other treats!
  • Step 11: Glue the cut out in. 
  • OPTIONAL: You can make the super laser beams by cutting green straws and gluing them to the edges of the cut out.


And there you have it. You can check the step by step process in the images below:
