D.I.Y. Taco Piñata

It’s back again, everyone’s favorite holiday to hate — Cinco De Mayo.

Back in my college days we would look for any excuse to drink, essentially making up our own holidays: Sunday Funday, Margarita Monday, Taco Tuesday, Wine Wednesday, Thirsty Thursday, Friday Bride Day, and Sippin’ Saturday.

Probably my favorite part of school, ya know, besides the learning (Hi, Mom!).

A couple of years ago I posted a D.I.Y for Crunchwraps easily paired with a Baja Blast Margarita for the perfect Cinco De Mayo fiesta.

But a party would be nothing without a piñata! So here are a few easy steps to create your own:

What You’ll Need:

  • Cardboard
  • Tissue paper/Construction paper (for tomatoes, sour cream, taco meat, and cheese)
  • Roll of streamers (taco shell and lettuce)
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun
  • Fishing wire

Essentials

Step 1: Cut Out Two Boob-Shaped Lumps for Taco Shells (and Like Normal Boobs, They Probably Won’t Be Symmetrical).

Step 2: Cut Two Strips. One Long and One Short for the Bottom and Top of the Taco.

Step 4: Glue on Layers of Yellow Streamers; One Layer Higher Than the Next. Do This to Both Sides.

Step 6: Finally, Add the Condiments. Half Spheres for Tomatoes, Curl Small Strips for Cheese, Add a Strip Along the Edge for Lettuce, and Crumple Brown Construction Paper for Taco Meat and White Paper for Sour Cream.
