Birthdays are my favorite thing about being a mom. Birthday cards, cheerful birthday decorations, a good party theme! It is all something I love. I want to show my kiddos that their life is so important! Whether that be the message in an American Greetings birthday card, the decorations, or even on the cake…..all the details matter to me when planning a summer birthday party. When we have a birthday coming up, my crafty side kicks in! That means I spend time in the months and weeks leading up to the birthday party crafting and planning all the decorations and party favors! My kids LOVE to come home with party favors. The party favors typically become my favorite part of the planning process. They are so fun! And, with a good theme, you can easily make them to match anything! Today, I am going to share my DIY Cupcake Pinata Favors with you!
These DIY Cupcake Pinata Favors bring together all the fun aspects of a party! I found this super cute sparkly cupcake American Greetings card at Meijer, and boom! Cupcakes! Pinatas, cupcakes, and candy! Yay! To make these, you will need the following:
Cardboard Cupcake Forms
American Greetings Tissue Paper
American Greetings Ribbon
ModPodge, Hot Glue
Craft paint, buttons, etc.
First, cut your American Greetings Tissue Paper into 1 inch wide strips. I then cut these in half, so they were easier to manage.
Paint a thin layer of ModPodge on your cupcake. Begin covering it with strips of tissue paper. Continue this process until it is fully covered. Set aside to dry for 24-hours.
Next, repeat the same process with your cupcake dome. Set this aside to dry for 24-hours.
While these were drying, I painted some buttons to use as the “cherry” on top! I also added some curly American Greetings Ribbon to the top of some. To get these to stay, I had to use hot glue.
Set them aside to fully dry and then fill them with your favorite treats! Candy, beads, erasers, the possibilities are endless!
It is fun to create a simple, classic craft like a pinata for a birthday party. With so many colors of tissue paper and ribbons to choose from at Meijer, you can really customize these. Plus, this is a great way to get the birthday girl or boy involved in the party planning! Our summer birthday party is going to be fantastic. The bright back drop of summer skies, sunshine add so much fun to an outdoor party!
Meijer has everything you need from American Greetings to create a fantastic party! I love their selection of cards especially. With so many nieces, nephews, neighbors, and my own daughter celebrating a birthday very soon, the choices are endless!
We particularly love the easy to read and inspiring messaging in the cards for the kiddos! What birthday girl doesn’t love a sparkly pink cupcake card to go along with her party theme? If I know the theme of the party, then I definitely pick up a card to match!
