Made mainly out of soda bottles and hot glue, this provides a festive alternative to the normal luminary selection.
Step 1: Stuff You'll Need
• 3 – 1 liter soda bottles (empty & rinsed)
• 2 – 20 ounce soda bottles (empty & rinsed)
• 1 – short strand of white Christmas lights
• Hot glue gun & about 60 hot glue sticks
• 4 rolls clear tape
• Transparent glass paint in varying colors & paintbrush
• Cutting instruments (Scissors, Xacto blade, hack saw with thin blade, or whatever works for you)
Step 2: Cutting & Attaching the Soda Bottles
Use clear tape to tack the bottles together according to the picture (start with the legs, then move onto the head). After you have everything taped in place and you are sure that everything is symmetrical, use hot glue to reinforce to connections.
Cut a slice in the main body bottle wherever you’d ultimately like the electric cable to come out. I had mine come out of the piñata’s bum, but you may prefer it coming out of the back.
If you plan on hanging the piñata, attach a hanging loop to the back of the piñata’s neck (notice how I had to adjust the loop placement from the beginning to end to allow for balanced hanging).
