I’ve been talking for a few weeks about making a new piñata. When I was asked to celebrate the release of The Swan Princess: A Royal Wedding, I knew a swan piñata had to happen!

DIY Swan Piñata

DIY Swan Piñata


  • White Crepe Paper
  • Cardboard
  • Pasteboard
  • School Glue
  • Masking Tape
  • Twine
  • Orange Paper
  • Black Paper
  • Glitter Paper (Optional)
  • Googly Eyes


  • Scissors


  1. Draw a simple swan shape on cardboard.
  2. Cut out the cardboard swan and use that to create an identical second cutout.
  3. Cut out strips of pasteboard into equal widths. This can be an empty cereal box or something similar.
  4. Use masking tape to attach the pasteboard to the sides of one swan cutout. If you want to add a loop of twine for hanging or add a flap door for stuffing your piñata with candy, you will need to do so as part of this step.
  5. Attach the second swan cutout to the other side of the pasteboard with more masking tape.
  6. Cut multiple lengths of fringe from white crepe paper. You can create a small stack to cut multiple pieces of crepe paper at once.
  7. Add crepe paper fringe in rows to pinata with school glue.
  8. Work in sections, and wait until the glue dries before trimming off excess fringe.
  9. Cover the entire pinata in crepe paper fringe, adding additional layers in any areas where it looks like it might be needed.
  10. Cut beak out of orange and black construction paper or cardstock and glue to the beak area of the piñata. Glue on googly eyes and add a crown cut out of gold glitter paper, if desired.
