Angry Bird Madness: Day 1 The Piggy Pinata

Hello all welcome to day 1 of my insane party prep.  I am a Virgo so there fore I am a planner... (and I'm OCD and occasionally ADD at the same time) so I decided to get an early start on my baby Boo's birthday party.  I started with the mandatory pinata.  Having never made a pinata before I googled and You tubed for days and finally found the courage to try and make one. I found this pinata maker and got lots of tips.  I started with a base of a punch ball
this was stage one, many layers later I covered the whole form with white craft paper as a base for the crepe paper layer
I used cardboard as the base for the ears and snout then a small balloon form cut in half for the eyes

I hot glued the eyes on then covered the whole structure with strips of crepe paper using good old Elmer's glue.
this is about half done I fringed the paper by hand and put it on in about 12 inch strips.

I glued on paper for the mouth eyes and eyebrows and a crown that I have since decorated with plastic gems and glimmer mists.  The crown covers the hole for the candy.  I plan to load this guy up with eggs filled with candy stickers and toys.  'Cause we all know that the king pig eats the most eggs! :)
Day 2 will involve minions... Hee hee hee
See you then
