I decided to be a piñata for Halloween, but I still wanted to look kind of cute, so I didn't want to cover myself in tissue paper from head to toe. I also wanted an excuse to randomly throw candy at people. After a bit of brainstorming, I came up with this Piñata Couple Costume idea!
* 1 Large Piñata * 1 long stretchy tank top/large shirt * 1 small bag (to hold candy) * Candy! * Multiple colors of crepe paper * Glue Gun * Thick Ribbon * Face Paint * Colored hair spray
Cut the piñata's head off. I used a steak knife... it was kind of violent.
Punch two holes on each side of the head and thread the ribbon through the holes. The ribbon will tie under your chin, making the piñata head into a hat!
Cut the piñata in half, and discard the front legs.
Punch two holes on either side of the piñata booty and thread ribbon through the holes. The ribbon will tie around your waist like a belt. (I considered making the ribbons go over my shoulders like overalls instead of around my waist, but the waist worked just fine!)
Use hot glue to attach strips of crepe paper horizontally across your tank top. I only did the front because once the glue dries, the fabric won't stretch! I put large paper bags in my tank top to keep myself from gluing both sides of it together.
Cut the crepe paper into fringe
Separate your hair into 2" sections and spray them each a different color. Apply fun, colorful face paint
Fill your purse with candy!
Go to a party, throw candy at people, and enjoy having the best costume ever!
** note: my husband wore a poncho, sombrero, and mustache... this is a great couples costume!
