I hand made these mini Christmas tree piñatas with cereal boxes and filled them with little chocolates and used them as favors to place at the table so guests could take them home.
What you need
Green crepe paper (streamer)
Cardboard box (cereal boxes)
Tape and scissors
Constructions paper in various colors
How to make your Christmas Tree Piñata
Draw the outline of a tree on cardboard (use packaging boxes, cereal boxes or any other cardboard you may have).
Cut the tree out of the cardboard and cut thinner strips of cardboard (these thinner strips will be used to tape the two tree cutouts together).
Next, tape the cardboard pieces together using the strips of cardboard.
Add any treats or little gifts before closing the tree.
Fold streamer paper and cut small vertical slits on one side of the streamer paper.
Cover the top and bottom of the tree with the crepe paper and then glue the fringe on the cardboard tree. Continue to the top of the tree overlapping each fringe.
Lastly, decorate the tree with small paper stars and ornaments. I used a hole puncher to cut out some "ornaments" from construction paper and made these mini stars using sparkly gold ribbon.
