YOU WILL NEED:

White vinyl // Black vinyl // Pink vinyl // Mugs or glass ware // Cricut Explore* //

*You have two options here, you can use a Cricut Explore to cut out the ghost emoji and letters, or you can cut your vinyl out free hand and grab some vinyl letters if you don’t have a machine! If you’re going to be using the Cricut though, grab the templates here: Emoji body , emoji face , emoji tongue , his boo , her boo and upload them to the Cricut Design Space.

pinatas 1

I don’t know about you but it’s officially starting to feel like Autumn around here, the evenings are getting darker earlier, there’s a cold nip in the air and we’re starting to light our wood burner most nights! There’s something so beautiful about Autumn where we live though, the Forest of Dean turns into a sea of orange leaves, there’s often a crunch underneath your feet and what better way to celebrate this season than with piñatas?! We called in the awesome Alyson from Sugar and Bash to come up with a little fall crafting for you…

pinatas 3

“I’ve been really into making piñatas lately, and when these gals asked if I wanted to contribute I knew exactly what to do! These mini leaf pinatas add bright pops of color to any party. They make great party favors and can be used as table cards by simply sticking a name on them. They are easy to make, and all you need to do is follow the instruction below –

materials

YOU WILL NEED:

Tissue Paper // Card Stock cut into simple leaf patterns and 1” strips // Scissors // Fringe Scissors (because they make your life easier!) // Glue // Scotch Tape //

STEP 1

Attach the card stock strip to the leaf patterns. Because the shape is real curvy, I would tape smaller sections and check on each side to make sure the curve of the leaf was present.
