Last week, for the Instructables Halloween party, I created a man-sized pinata (or manata as I like to call it.) It was a lot of work, but was cheap to build, fun to make, and even more fun to break. This design is very durable and is meant to satisfy a large party of whackers.
Step 1: Chicken wire you looking at me like that?
- 3 yards of chicken wire (a 3' x 9' sheet in a gauge you can easily bend)
- 1 newspaper
- a bus tub, bucket or deep tray
- wire snips
- needle nose pliers
- tissue paper
- candy and prizes of all shapes and sizes
- rope for hoisting
