DIY Valentine Fruit Piñatas

We are big fans of printable Valentine cards for gifting with ease. But we will never get over a good DIY gift either! We knew we wanted to make DIY Valentine Piñatas this year, but didn’t expect them to turn into something so… fruitful 😉 But you know I can never pass up a good pun. Orange ya glad?!

DIY Valentine Piñatas in Fun Fruit Shapes

I’m thinking that these guys would be great to leave at a door for a friend or even send in the mail. And then match up the fruit with candies of the same flavor–can you imagine?! So cute! You can choose from an orange (orange you glad we’re friends?), peach “you’re a peach!”, a strawberry “you’re berry special”, a pear “you’re pearfect”, and a honeydew melon “HoneyDEW you want me to be your Valentine?”.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Use our templates to trace the shape of the fruit onto cardboard. You’ll need two shapes per cardboard.
  2. Cut 1.5″ strips going against the grain of the cardboard for the sides of the fruit shapes. Glue or tape them onto the fruit shape.
  3. Cut 3/4″ fringe of crepe paper or tissue paper.
  4. Apply the fringe to the bottom of the fruit and then work your way up to the top of the fruit.
  5. STEM: Add on a stem by rolling a piece of tissue or paper around in a circle. Glue in place.
  6. LEAF: Cut a leaf out of paper or crepe paper and glue in place.
  7. Top it all off with one of our adorable fruit stickers (you can find them here).

It actually makes me feel giddy, when I think about making these for my girlfriends! I want to make them each, one of each, One piñata, one sucker cherries, One lipstick, and whatever else there is! Like a kid in a candy store, I’m pumped! Lol
    Funny cause I was just sitting here tonight and I was thinking about what website to go on to look for cool valentine craft ideas and it literally popped into my mind, “hey I wonder what ‘the house that Lars built’, what they have going on? And Wala! I’m never disappointed when I visit your site;)
