I had so much fun making this crepe paper monster piñata with my daughter, Emily. It reminded me of when she was a kid and we’d do a lot of crafting together. Since making him, we’ve decided he’s way too cute to destroy. So if you feel the same way, you can always craft him as a Halloween decoration instead!
Along with our video tutorial below, you’ll also find a pattern for the horns, arms, tongue, and fur. These are simple to cut by hand, or you always have the option to use your cutting machine.
Monsterrific Halloween decor
Our crepe paper monster piñata looks like a romaine lettuce head, which is why we have named him Ramone. Of course you can always choose other colors besides green and name your paper mache monster whatever you like. Or, since this is a fun kid’s craft, let your little one decide what to call their creation!
To make our paper mache piñata look more like a monster, we gave him some horns, arms, and a lot of fluff. He is also a bit mischievous, which is why his tongue is sticking out. Plus we think monster decorations should be cute and silly, anyway.
