DIY: Piñata Letter Signage

DIY: Piñata Letter Signage
Last week, my team and I hosted a fun luncheon at Estérel Restaurant to celebrate the redesign. We invited a few of the site’s contributors, photographers, designers, and biggest supporters. It was so nice to have the chance to toast to all of our hard work together. Per usual, my team and I prepared for the luncheon by having a major craft day. Since the party theme was geared around bright and bold colors, we wanted to create something that would pop! I decided mini piñata letters would be just the thing we needed for our celebratory get-together. Needless to say, we were smitten with the outcome. And the garland was a huge hit with all of our guests, too!

If you have a soiree in the near future (a baby shower, engagement party, or birthday would be perfect!), this craft is worth your time. These mini piñata letters require minimal materials and are so much fun to create. So roll up your sleeves, invite some of your favorite ladies over, and start crafting with this simple tutorial…

How to create piñata letters by

Here’s what you will need:

  • cardboard letters (we found ours at Jo-Ann’s, but you can purchase them at many craft or paper stores, or on Amazon)
  • multicolored tissue paper (or color of your choice)
  • liquid glue
  • scissors

Everything you need to create your own piñata letters


1. Begin by cutting your multicolored tissue paper into 2-inch strips. We layered several sheets of tissue paper on top of one another before cutting to save time.

2. Keeping the tissue paper together, fold your 2-inch strips like we did in the photo below.

3. Create your fringe by cutting the tissue vertically. Be sure to leave about half an inch of tissue paper per strip so that you can glue them onto the cardboard letters.

4. Starting from the bottom, glue your tissue paper into place as your wrap it around the cardboard letters. Work your way to the top of each letter, gluing along the way.
