Squeal! The New Year is almost here and we are having a blast sharing lots of fab DIY projects to make your celebration go with a bang! Our DIY mirror ball piñata is super-simple to make and looks stunning as part of any New Year’s Eve party decor. If hitting a large paper ball with a stick on New Years is not your thing, you can make this party decoration as a simple DIY mirror ball instead. Either way this project is fun to make and looks rather gorgeous don’t you think?!
To make this DIY piñata, begin with a 10″ paper lantern (you can shop this project below!). Use a 2.5″ circle punch to make up to 140 paper circles in papers of your choice. For a ombré effect you will need approx. 40 in silver, 60 in gold and 40 in bronze. Starting at the bottom of your paper lantern, attach the bronze circles around the base using a low temperature glue gun. Working your way up, make sure you layer the circles on top of one another as you go. You will want to create three rows of bronze, three rows of gold and three rows on silver paper circles to cover your paper lantern. Before you glue on those last paper circles, pop your piñata treats into the top of the lantern. Tie a length of ribbon or twine to the frame of the lantern and hang you DIY piñata with pride! Enjoy! ~ Lia
