Buy a giant balloon & a small balloon. If you live near a shop called "Tiger" (it's a store mainly in Europe) they've got some sometimes, otherwise search for it on google and order some.
Then blow it up and tie a knot. Now you've got your base for it.
Rip a lot of old newspaper and mix some paper mache and cover the whole balloon (the big one first). Then let it dry and repeat the process at least 3 times. When it's completely hardened pop the balloon.
While covering the bigger balloon, do the same on the smaller balloon. Repeat, and let to dry - then pop when completely dry.
You need to get the head and body to stick to each other. I used a glue gun and covered the edges so it looked like one big balloon.
Then i used cotton balls to imitate the shell of the turtle. After gluing them on the body, I covered with paper.
It should look like this now:
|This is the view from the side. It's so adorable!|
Start to paint it in the decided colors.
I used acrylics and gave it a few layers.
|I just found this picture on google images. I didn't take a picture of the acrylic paint, lol.|
After painting it as desired, put on some colored rice paper as you wish and you're actually done!
|And here's my ugly turtle <3 td="">3>|
I really hope this was a simple guide to do a pinata. It doesn't have to be a turtle, it could as well be a donkey or a snake.
I hope you'll like my guide and I'll post some more soon!
