Did you guys see the Football Gender Reveal Party I posted? So many fun details! The way we announced the gender of my sister’s baby was with this fun giant gender reveal pinata!
My sister let her kids be the one to pull the string, and they loved it.
How to make a DIY Gender Reveal Pinata
Let’s put it together!
Supplies needed (you can most from Oriental Trading):
- Pink Tissue Paper
- Blue Tissue Paper
- Packing Tape
- Pink Confetti
- Blue Confetti
- White Jumbo Paper Lantern
- Clear Candy Cylinders
- Shred Scissors
Gender Reveal Pinata
First take your plastic container, packing tape and the metal insert for the giant paper fan.
Place the open end of the container over the bottom of the metal and tape to the sides. This will be your confetti holder.
Place inside the giant lantern, and put it together.
Cut your tissue paper into strips about an inch and a half wide.
Stack your strips on top of one another and use these shred scissors to cut some fringe. I LOVE how easy these make it to make fringe.
You need quite a few strips, so get comfortable and cut away!
Start gluing the fringe to the outside of the lantern, alternating colors on each row. I just had the fringe go over the part that wasn’t fringed. It worked out well.Keep going until you get to the top!
If you have a balloon tassel that would work best, but I had a couple pieces left from the table skirt so I just made a tassel with those. Then I just trimmed the ends and taped a piece of tulle onto it.
For the bottom use two pieces of tissue paper, I trimmed the top piece in half just to make sure the confetti will fall out.
I then taped the tassel to the bottom of the tissue paper, I taped it several times so that when the kids pulled it would be sure to rip and let the confetti out.
We had someone who didn’t have a vested interest in the result put the confetti in the container.
Then she just needed to wrap the tissue paper around the bottom of the container and tape it to the sides.
Then once the confetti was in and the paper was taped to the sides, you just need to put the container back in the paper lantern. Now it’s ready to find out what the gender is!
Seriously too much fun!
