Fox Pinata

 Originally I was going to make this pinata (only not so feminine). I was going for quick and easy. The party was in two days and I didn't have time to create and mermaid masterpiece. Then I saw this pinata and I knew I had to do just a little bit more and I am SOOO glad that I did! 

I cut the pieces out to be pretty small (or so I thought, he still ended up being pretty large.) I made a front and back for the body, two ears, two flat arms, and a front and back for the tail. I just eye balled the shape and was really pleased with how it turned out.

 Then I added scrunched up tin foil to give his face and his feet some dimension.

 For his tail (not pictured I didn't want it just to be flat so I put a thin strip (approx 1") between the two pieces standing up to it propped the tail up giving it more of a domed shape.

 Then I started to paper mache. Little curved strips work the best.

 For this fox I only added paper mache to his face. This was a 3 year old party and I didn't want to reinforce the pinata to much so they would be able to break it. (it was still to strong, they hardly made a dent in it!)

Then it was time to add the tissue. This was hands down the most time consuming part!

 Then I punched out a 2" and two 1" circles for the eyes and nose out of black card stalk. And he's done! I serioulsy cannot even tell you how much I love him! He was sooooo ridiculously cute!

I had a really hard time letting the kiddos break hyim apart but he was perfect in every way! So proud of this little guy!
