DIY Super Hero Theme Pinata

                                                          Super Hero Pinata


For my DIY post of the week I thought I would take on a Pinata it can't be that hard I thought. After scouring the web I finally decided I needed to make my own I wanted to incorporate the theme but also have it be my own so I thought why not an A for my name? This was my third ever pinata I made one in Middle school out of newspaper and a balloon man that was a mess and one simple box pinata. This pinata is for my Super birthday party I am having this weekend. Who says adults can't have a little fun to right?  It is double sided so I thought I would make one side Wonder Woman since that is my costume and Super man for the other since they are made for each other obviously. 


For this project you will need
  • A moving box
  • A pencil 
  • Ruler
  • X-acto knife or scissors
  • Tape I used masking tape
  • A softer box I used a soda box
  • Crepe Paper Rolls or Sheets (Red and Yellow)
  • Tissue paper if you want to wrap it before adding the layers of crepe(Blue,Red and Yellow)
  • Glue
  • Star Stickers
  • String to hang
  • Super Hero Logo Print out

When I started out it looked a little something like this I just traced the box using a ruler to stay straight with my shape I wanted and cut it out with my Xact-o knife I tried to cut through both but my blade wasn't able to so I ended up cutting one and then using it as the master to cut the other.


I then cut my soft card board and placed it in between these two boxes to form the letter the sides of the soda box fit perfect in the middle of the letter and the extra harder pieces worked great on the outsides. See what works best for you tape it all shut, I didn't get a picture of this part I wish I did..

After wards I covered mine in tissue paper because I wanted the bottom to stay flat
This is up to you if you want to do it this way it took a little bit longer than I would have liked so like I said its up to your discretion.

Then I just cut my crepe paper I used rolls because I found them in a two pack for a 1 at dollar tree but you can buy the sheets also and skip this step just slide the scissors in about 8 layers and cut it will make a stack of sheets


 Then hold the stack and cut a bunch of snips about 3/4 of the way through to 
leave a layer to attach like this
I wanted to make a quick shout out because before I found this bloggers site I was
going to unroll and cut each one it would have taken so much more time so thank you very much 
Pinata Boy you need to go to his site and check it out he has so many amazing wonderful tips he is a pro!!  

Then you just take each sheet and layer it on bottom to top layer by layer it will eventually look like this as I said before I left the blue part as just the tissue paper and started with the yellow to layer then the red and then I let it dry and glued on the Super Man logo on one side



I added the Wonder Woman Logo on the other as well as some Felt Star Stickers I had from my DIY Costume (I will post that one next week after my party)



I will say I got most of my items at the Dollar Tree which I love for crafting or anything really I always go there first just to see what they have in stock. I got the Crepe Paper,String,Tissue Paper(1 pack had all colors and the glue so always check there for any cheaper alternatives. Its going to get beaten to heck anyways. The rest I found at Hobby Lobby for very great prices.

Pinata cost was $9 because I didn't have glue,masking tape or and Xact-o knife or it would have been less than $5. I just needed to buy the stuff anyways so it gave me a reason to.

Super Hero Sign

Hey everyone I was making up a few crafts for my super hero themed birthday this month and I wanted to share them with you all! This is a superhero sign I recreated that is so cute I cant wait for everyone to see it!

I just made this on MS Word using different fonts I will place the font names after the break if you are curious. I printed it and bought the frame from the Dollar tree it was super simple and makes a great touch.

I got my idea from this sign I saw on Pinterest from Karas Party Ideas BLOG


I will update with a picture of my sign as soon as I have it you can change the fonts to fit your theme.

The printable can be found here it is a bit different as I couldn't get the perfect font but I think it came out pretty good.

Salsa Crazy-Beginners Learn to dance salsa 3 pack DVD



This is a great instructional video for both adults and 12 year old son and 13 year old daughter had a great time learning to salsa with mom! We had a lot of fun, it was my kids first time ever even seeing salsa dancing so it was a new experience for them that we will remember for a lifetime. I recently decided to cancel my gym membership and use the dance videos from Salsa Crazy to help get back in shape. Have you seen the bodies of those dancers? They look amazing it is quite the workout and fun all in one! Check out the other videos they have to offer we are currently trying the Ballroom Mastery as well as the Merengue dvd. At the end we will be able to work a dance floor for sure!!

Arvazallia Professional Hair Treatment

Arvazallia Professional Hair Treatment



This treatment kit comes with  Hydrating Argan Oil Hair Mask, Premium Argan Oil Hair Treatment and  Ultra Curl Defining Cream with Argan Oil


I am sure it is because I have unrully thick frizzy hair but I loved the Hair Mask the most it made my hair feel so soft and smooth, it was amazing! Check out how thick this stuff is

The Curl Defining cream kept my waves defined without weighing them down, I also noticed that it didn't have a greesy texture like some defining creams cause

The Premium Argan Oil was great at keeping my fly aways at bay as well as keeping my crazy frizzy hair manageable. 

I will be posting my video for the contest this week also I really want one of these prizes soon I will be begging for votes! VOTE for ME :)




I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
