Before you start:

You’ll want to cut out your shape on cardboard and cut two strips to go along the bottom and sides of your shape and hold the two sides together.

  1. Attach cardboard strips with hot glue to the front and back of the pineapple (or whatever shape you choose). These will be the sides of your piñata.
  2. Cut tissue paper into 2 inch wide strips.
  3. Cut slits in the tissue paper strips. Be sure you don’t cut all the way through the paper, you want the paper to have a 1/4 inch of space at the top that is not cut.
  4. Cover pineapple with a generous amount of Mod Podge.
  5. Press strips of tissue paper onto the cardboard, overlapping the strips.
  6. Trim any excess tissue paper off of the sides.
