Step 7: Hang em High
No piñata would be complete without that necessary rope to string-em up by. Although it may seem insignificant, this detail is probably MOST CRUCIAL to the success of your piñata. It can be down right maddening to have a fully filled piñata come crashing to the floor because the rope popped out the top. The store bought piñatas are notorious for this. To avoid this catastrophe heres what works best...
`Take a metal jar lid & punture a hole in the center of it.
`Take a piece of STURDY rope or twine and knot the end creating a small loop (Be sure the knot is about 2x the size of the hole)
`Push the loop up through the hole in the lid
`Poke a hole in the top of your piñata
`Insert the entire lid into the piñata through the "door"
`Push the loop up through the hole in the top of the piñata
The lid increases the surface area for the weight of the piñata to be dispersed over. Just be sure your knoted end will not pull through the hole in the lid, or you are back to square one.
