Use scotch tape to cover the hollow sides of the inner legs, nose, ears, and neck..  Be sure to leave the front chest cavity open for now.

Then use hot glue on the taped areas to create a thin 1/2” grid (this adds structure to the hollow areas while maintaining its light weight).  You may want to use low heat hot glue for the taped areas, to ensure that the glue doesn’t melt/distort the tape.

Attach the front chest cavity door and use tape as a hinge on one side.  Using an Xacto blade, cut an entry from the main body bottle upward into the head area.  Take your Christmas lights and shove them inside of the piñata head/body, with the cord coming out of the appropriate hole.
