How To Make It

1. Disassemble your cereal box and lay flat.

2. Use a small plate or bowl to trace two circles onto the cardboard. Cut out each circle.

3. Cut a 2-3” strip from the full length of the box.

4. Begin to tape the cardboard strip all the way around one circle, creating a drum-like cylinder. Bend one end of the cardboard strip to create a folding door. This is where you’ll fill the piñata with candy.

5. Cut crepe paper into long 1” wide strips. Cut along each strip to create fringe.

6. Start layering your fringed crepe paper with glue, working from the bottom up and leaving the fringes free from glue. Repeat on the other side & sides, and trim around the edges.

7. Fill your piñata with candy & treasures then tape the door shut and add crepe paper to cover as needed.

8. Print out the Jack Skellington template. Cut out Jack’s eyes, nose and mouth and use as a template with black cardstock. Attach Jack’s features to your piñata with glue.

9. To create Jack’s hat, measure a piece of red crepe paper across the top of Jack’s face. Trim to create a half circle. Use a small piece of red crepe paper to create the top of Jack’s hat. Attach a white pom pom at the end.

10. To hang your piñata up, loop a piece of twine and tape one end to the top of the piñata.

We hope you enjoy this Jack Skellington Piñata for a little fun this holiday season.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
