Reusing cardboard to create a DIY flower pinata.
Life would be a million times better if there were pinatas strategically placed throughout the day.– FaveThing.com
Who, no really who doesn’t love a Pinata?
So why are these reserved for kid parties?
Can’t a mom get a Pinata?
Whether it’s for ~
- Mother’s Day
- Girl’s Night Out/In
- Baby/Wedding Shower
You can see there are so many reasons to break out a pinata, right?
This DIY Flower Pinata is just what will send your party over the top.
And really, wouldn’t this be cute for a little girl’s birthday party too?
We upcycled items from the recycle to make the actual Pinata….cause we love a good repurpose story #salvageresources!
Here is what you need to make your own flower piñata…most of which you probably have on hand.

- Large Pieces of Cardboard
- Everyday Glue
- Hot Glue
- Good Scissors
- Tissue Paper
- Ribbon <<<The pretty kind!
Now if you are a perfectionist, we would recommend getting a template by printing a flower, adjusting the size, and tracing it.
If you aren’t, draw one petal on cardboard, cut it out, and use that to trace each petal to form your flower (wonder which we did…lol).
After you have one complete flower cut out, lay that on another piece of cardboard, trace, and cut that out. Now you should have two flowers.
Place your goodies inside:
- Spa Samples
- Gift Card
- Makeup Removers (cloth)
- Tea/Coffee Samples
- Gardening Gloves
- Nail File
Tip – No glass, liquids, or mushy items!
Your DIY Flower Pinata is all done.
For the stick, we used a broom handle and wrapped ribbon around it.
At the top, we used leftover ribbons….you know the stuff other people throw away (sense a theme here), and tied them on for a princess feel.
