Peeps Pinata

This round of Iron Craft required the use of something Peeps.
Those over sugared squish balls that I'm told are edible.
(can you tell I'm not a fan of Peeps?!)

So my thought was destruction.

I created a pink bunny Peep pinata.

I mixed regular school glue and a little water then covered newspaper with the mixture.
The newspaper wrapped around two balloons I blew up.

I used two toilet paper rolls with the ends filled with a little newspaper and papered them and attached to the top of the smaller of the two balloons. This created the ears.

Once all was well covered and dry I used an exacto knife to cut off the tips of both balloons (where they blew up). 
After removing the balloon remains I used some tape to lightly attach the two openings together then put a couple layers of paper over that to create a solid sturdy neck.

After everything dried I used the exacto knife to cut a flap out of the back and pour candy into.
I used a little more tape and paper to secure the flap closed.

Next I spray painted the whole thing white, let that dry, then spray painted pink.

Last I cut tissue paper into strips and cut fringe into one side of the strips then painted a bit of glue onto the other side. I attached the strips starting at the bottom and going all the way up.

For the face I took a stencil paint brush (round and flat tip) and dipped it in brown paint then patted on the round eyes and half circle nose.

Now I can beat up a Peep! :)


  1. Will you fill it & have the kids beat it for Easter?

  2. I LOVE Peeps and I LOVE your pinata. What a cute idea. I found you via Linky Follower Blog Hop. Hope you'll hope on over and visit me.
