Whether tossed out with the trash, buried in the backyard, or mixed into your favorite soup recipe, the placenta is an organ worth celebrating over. The following tutorial outlines how to combine the ultimate party favor, the piñata, with the ultimate afterbirth.

Step 1: Step 1

Begin with an oblong, spherical piñata. Paint it with several layers of goopy red and brown paint. We used Crayola brand finger paints because they are non-toxic without sacrificing any gross-looking qualities. To achieve a thicker consistency we suggest adding RIT dye. RIT not only adds to the girth but also floods one with memories of tye-dying in Mrs. Chistopherson’s art class.
Veerry interesting, but I must say it looks more like a dissected brain balloon. I've seen &amp; studied a couple of my own placenta growths spread flat out or in a bowl and they were much more silvery blue and smooth - not too much blood. Fun idea but not at all realistic.&nbsp; Haha.&nbsp; ~:oP<br />
WELL....obviously....they are not afraid of it.lmao, i think they're funny
You should put condoms in there too, to aid in preventing creation of a new placenta... :P
Ummm, Why??? The point?
This'll be great for my next abortion party, thank you.
that. is. epic. you are amazing.
Sick, but cool at the same time.
That's really quite gross.
Uhh, what's the point??????????????????????????????
Cool, reminds me of a baby harp seal pinata I once made for a Politically Incorrect party at the Circus in Santa Cruz, it was filled with red vines and beef jerky and you had to hit it with a rifle butt.
man that is wrong on so many levels, heh,heh,heh i love it.
For epic lulz, you should make a giant wire coat hanger to extract the babies!
This is the funniest thing I've ever seen on this site. Very appropriate for a Halloween party or a Baby shower =). <br/>
No comment. Oh wait, this is a comment. Well, this is sick, in the good way and the bad way.
Bwahahaha! Thats sick, but halarious. Funny part is that i didn't really get the name and thought it was a testicle at first, now <em>theres</em> a project!<br/><br/>Good job on the instructable'<strong></strong><br/>
This is insulting to women with mustaches and people who wear black everywhere. Not to mention the alien insectoid mother you dismembered and then abused for your amusement. You're sick, childless puppies.
This way out-does my turkey neck-bones Christmas tree ornaments!
This is funny! I agree with other comments, it's more like a (creepy and diseased) uterus. But with the wordplay ya gotta call it "placenata". I'll be whipping up one of these the next baby shower I host. Placentas are rad.
we had a placents hanging out in our freezer for ages after my friend gave birth, it looked nothing like this.
was it filled with swedish fish?
Well, placentas must be in quite short supply. Anything else we could use? BTW: Is that a human placenta?
This is cool, but that is just wrong :P But I love it!!!!!!!
i love it! great job
And make sure to put some large onions in there! Just don't stand under the pinata when it gets whacked... And maybe some of those little plastic booze bottles, from airlines... And chocolates with booze cores... Damn, now I have to make one...
you are great!
umm. ew?
What a festive addition to the holidays!
Inspired, guys! Who would ever have thought of such a thing? The next step must surely be the pinata liver - maybe even sponsored by those corporations who make a fortune every time the said organ takes a beating... Bring it on! Bring it on BIG!!!
Fantastic idea, a pinata liver - I'd hit that! (With a stick, you sick puppies.)
aww gross...
I feel kinda sick now.
Hmmm... Isn't cooking and eating placenta a form of cannibalism. Isn't cannibalism frowned upon in most societies?... Good pinata!
holy f***!!!!! u go to my school! hahah what a coinkydink!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thats so weird!!!!!
Now, is it still cannibalism if it's your own flesh? And that's most "Civilized" societies...
That would be self-cannibalism. But ya got a point there, it is kind of a gray area. I got "cannibalism is frowned upon in most societies" from the newer version of Charlie and the Chocolate factory.
I'm totally throwing a party just so I can make one of these. Maybe put in a couple of waterballoons filled with raspberry jam, water, and creamcheese around a baby doll.
Good timing. There was just an article on MSNBC, I believe, about eating placenta. It supposedly helps curb postpartum blues. Even if that's not the case, it's probably got lots of iron in it. What you made actually looks like a big uterus, but hey, still a good concept. ; )
I would also add condoms to the inside :) After seeing a placenta, people mught want to use them
Oooh .. nice and creepy. I like :) Also I believe it is supposed to be a traditional and nurturing experience for the parents of a newlyborn to devour the placenta. I always liked the old traditions the best and this atleast a modern variety Good job all round..
is that like a dead pig or something LOL
The placenta is the lining of the uterus that develops during pregnancy. It's responsible for transferring oxygen and nutrients to the developing fetus; basically keeping little fetus happy. Dead pigs generally make poor substitutes, but good guess ;-)!
I once had to clean up a horse placenta when i was really hungover, not fun. Cool, albeit disgusting instructable
Only one suggestion: Raspberry jello. I don't know where in the placental structure this jello would be placed for the greatest advantage, but I'm sure you'll figure it out. Ha very nice Instructable, I love the twisted humor.
