DIY Pinata: Mini Sombrero for Cinco de Mayo Party

By  | Last Updated:  

Hi, it’s Suzie from Project: Party Perfect. Last time I shared my DIY Maracas for Cinco de Mayo and now I’m back with this fun DIY Pinata!

What you’ll Need:

  • crepe paper
  • tissue paper or napkin
  • paper cup
  • paper dessert plate
  • candy


  • craft knife
  • scissors
  • glue
  • fringe scissors (if you have it or just use regular scissors to create fringe)
  • tape

1) Create a hole on you paper plate by tracing the bottom of the cup and cut with your craft knife
2) Cover your hole with tissue paper
3) Cut the outer rim of the plate
4) Fill your cup with Candy
5) Center your cup onto the plate and tape the edges down
6) Cut strips of 1 1/2″ crepe paper and fringe 3/4 of the way

Starting from the bottom of your hat

7) Glue and start covering the outer rim (I didn’t fringe the rest of the bottom, just took 1″ strips to cover)
8) Work your way upward to completely cover the plate and cup

**You’ll notice that I placed the Fringe upwards towards the top of my cup**
