Fourth of July is almost here and the Independence Day parties are in the works! If you’re hosting and need cute party favors for the kids, look no further than these cute Mini Rocket Pull String Piñatas! They make adorable party favors and double as table decor. Bonus these little rockets aren’t noisy and won’t scare even the youngest of your guests.
Cut and glue a 3-5 inch piece of ribbon into one end of the cardboard tube.
Cut a circle of tissue paper slightly larger than the tube end. Lay the ribbon accross the tube end and glue around the end of the tube, placing the tissue paper over it and folding the edges over your line of glue.
Your ribbon should hang over and down from your glued tissue paper round.
Cut 1 inch strips of tissue paper in each color, fringing one side half way up with the scissors.
Layer and glue your tissue paper fringe on the cardboard tube starting at the bottom.
Cut out your printed rocket top designs and cut along the line.
Fold the circle at the cut creating a cone and gluing in place to create the rocket top.
Once your tube is covered in fringe and your cone is glued together, fill your mini piñatas with candies of your choice and then finish the piñata by gluing the paper cone to the top of the tube, completing the rocket.
Now your mini pull-string piñata is complete!
Repeat these steps using the different printable designs until you have as many mini rocket piñatas as you want! Kids simply pull the string at the bottom of their rocket, ripping the tissue paper, to release the candy inside. Such a fun and festive favor and decoration! Happy Independence Day!
