Bring joy to your house this holiday with glade candles and dyi star pinata
 The Holidays are my favorite time of the year. I’m always happy and want to celebrate every single day. My family and I enjoy every day of the Holiday season. We listen to Holiday music.We watch lots of Holiday movies together. We set a date to put up our Christmas tree and decorate our home. That day is a party, and we sing Holiday songs, drink eggnog, and laugh through the joyful night.

 Besides our Christmas decorations, I like to create a Holiday atmosphere at home; I light up the fireplace, turn on the Christmas tree and choose candles that help me spread the joy to my loved ones.

 I’ve always liked Glade®’s Winter Collection, as soon as I smell their scents they put me in the Holiday spirit and I want to share that joy with my family.

 I went to Walmart and discovered my new favorite scent from Glade®’s Winter Collection – it’s called, Be at Peace™ the scent is Balsam Fir & Juniper, as soon as I smell it I feel at peace. It gives me time to be thankful for the wonderful things I have, such as my kids, health and my amazing husband who does everything he can to make his family happy. This feeling inspired me to get even more creative this year!

Dyi star pinata craft of christmas tree

As a mom, nothing makes me happier than seeing my kids filled with joy (alegría) and it’s my job to bring that feeling home especially during this joyful season. One way I do it is plan different activities together as a family, such as posadas, which is a tradition in my family, so this year I decided to make Christmas ornaments and nothing says joy (alegría) louder in the Latino culture than a piñata! So I decided to make star piñatas for our posada and Christmas tree.

The star piñatas are very easy to make and the kids can even help you and make them. Getting together to make a Christmas ornament with a Latino twist is a yearly tradition in my family.
Follow these steps to make a star piñata and spread joy to your loved ones this Holiday season.

  • Insert the decoration of your choice inside the Christmas ornament.
  • To spread even more joy, I wrote notes for my kids and placed them inside the star piñata, which they will open on Christmas day.
  • Using the ribbon, decorate the Christmas ornament; I glued silver ribbon from top to bottom.
  • Add hot glue to the bottom of the cones and glue them to the Christmas ornament. One of each side, top and bottom. When gluing the cones, press on them for a minute to make sure they’re secured.
  • Since I want my kids to open his star piñata on Christmas day, I glued the top cone to the top of the Christmas ornament, this way it can be open it.
