Supplies

  • Packaging tape
  • Hot glue

How to make a pinata

The first thing you need to do is download the printable template I made for you to create these Toothless and Light Fury piñatas. Cut each piece out and trace around them onto cardboard. Use a box cutter to cut out all of your pieces.

Tip: keep the main body and tail together when tracing around the template so that your dragon is in one piece.

Cut extra strips of cardboard to attach between the front and back pieces of the body. These strips should be at least 2.5 to 3 inches wide. You can see from the image below how to mold these around the shape, attaching them in place with packaging tape as you go. Once you’ve done the backside of the dragon, attach the front side. Don’t attach the wings or legs just yet.

Here’s the link for the printable https://www.tonyastaab.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/How_To_Train_Your_Dragon_PullString_Pinata.pdf. There should be a link under the list of supplies ‘what you need’, but please let me know if you aren’t seeing that because I’ve just migrated my site and still working out some of the kinks.
