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.
What you need:
- Round or oval plastic clear or colored Christmas ornaments.
- Constructions paper of at least 4 different colors.
- Ribbon for inside the Christmas ornaments or the color of your choice. You can use anything you like, get creative!
- Ribbon of various bright colors
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Using the construction paper, cut 5 x 5 squares for each cone.
- Folded point to point forming 2 triangles, make sure you have a good crest
- Open it up and fold to the inside both sides, you’ll have a kite shape.
- Flip it over and fold the top triangle.
- Flip it again.
- Open the sides and fold the top triangle and close both sides again, you’ll have a triangle.
- Put your finger in the middle and see how easy you form a cone.
- Add hot glue to keep the cone close.
- 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.
