For the avid Dr. Who fan in your life, nothing livens up a birthday party like a pinata in the shape of the iconic Tardis phone booth. Luckily it is a very simple shape, so here are instructions on how to make a good looking, tardis which you can use over and over, OR, if you want, just to make a sculpture.
Since we knew she would much rather have the Tardis to keep afterwards instead of smashing it into oblivion, I opted for the pinata to be a pull-string, allowing it not only to remain intact for enjoyment, but also reusable if so desired!
This project took about 5 hrs. I was charged with helping do a surprise party for a friend who is a Whovian, and I knew that a Tardis Pinata would make her day. It was made from:
-1 Cardboard Box
- Scraps of foam core board
- Packing tape
- Brown Paper
- Corn Startch
- Misc. details
Step 1: The Box
Find yourself a box that you deem to be adequate enough to be phone booth shaped. Tape up the flaps into it's closed position so it is nice and tight. Leave one end open. This will become the trap door for the pull tab feature later.
