Turn your Easter eggs in to these Mini Piñatas!

HOW-TO:

No need to hard boil the eggs, just poke a small hole in one side, drain, and rinse with hot soapy water. Dry thoroughly, then add confetti, sprinkles, small candies, chenille chicks, glitter, dried flower blooms, or even a secret message on a small strip of paper {have fun with this part!!!} Patch up the hole with washi tape or tissue paper, then adorn with pretty fringed tissue paper or crepe paper strips.


Next, print out this FREE PRINTABLE I created just for you to make the festive cones for your piñata! Cut out each shape and roll it in to a cone and secure with a tape roller. Hot glue some yarn fluffs or more fringed tissue paper pieces in to the pointed ends of the cones. Make sure to have a loop in one of the cones as the top of the piñata for hanging. Then attach the fancy cones to the egg with hot glue in any placement you'd like. Be sure to add the one with the loop to the top of your egg!

So of course you'll need a fancy bat to help you crack open your adorable egg! I purchased some wood dowels from a local dollar store craft section. Just wrap with some yarn {secured with hot glue} and maybe add some of the fringed tissue paper and you have the perfect {+ beautiful} egg smasher!!

Have fun finding the hidden surprises inside!
