:: What To Do ::
Slowly and carefully rip off the existing picture on the piñata. Then using a glue stick, apply glue to the uncovered area. Place matching colored tissue paper on top to cover the exposed area. I only needed one sheet, but you might need more if you need to make it darker or your design won’t cover the entire area.
Then, cut out your design (mine was downloaded and printed from the internet and then glued onto gift wrapping paper). Depending on your design, you can find already themed wrapping paper, decorative paper, decals and even large stickers to use….in my case, I had NOTHING to work with, so I printed it out myself! Just plan out the space you just replaced with your design–even though I didn’t make a ‘star’ shape like the piñata was before, I made a similar shape to make sure it looked right!
