Introduction: Pinata Costume

Want a homemade costume that stands out? How about a pinata?

Step 1: Gather Supplies

Find and old dress and colored crepe paper.

Step 2: Glue Paper to Dress

Hot glue strips of crepe paper to dress. Only glue the top edge to the dress; you will be cutting/fraying the bottoms later. I used two layers for each paper strip. TIP: I would suggest getting a light fabric if you can. I had to quadruple the layers to make the colors pop.

Step 3: Keep Gluing

This can get tedious (especially if you do it in one sitting like I did) but it will be worth it.

Step 4: Cut Crepe Paper

Now to the fun part: creating the pinata look! Simply cut the paper in squares.

Step 5: Add a Headband and You're Done!

The headband is simply rolls of paper glued to a headband. It really completes the look I think!
