Handmade Wedding Pinata Fun.

Hello lovely people, its been a while since I posted.
I have been working on projects for my daughters wedding.  
This was on the 24th August. 
 We had amazing weather and the day went very well.  

There were several fun events during the day and the family were all involved. 
This project features a set of handmade personalised pinata.   
The pictures in the collage reflects the wonderful atmosphere and magic of the whole wedding.  
The happy couple, Sue and Harry, had a fabulous day!

Material used to make pinata couple:
Bodies:  Tubes containing sweets and rainbow paper shredding were created from Crafter's Companion Centura Pearl card.  These were decorated with crepe paper roll to create wedding garments.  
The children at the evening reception loved these.
Heads:  Paper mache construction using balloons and copy paper strips or modelling bandage.  
These were covered in several layers of Modge Podge and painted.  
The features were added or painted with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers.
I made the nose and ears from plaster bandage. 
The heads were then attached to the bodies.
Twine was used to suspend the pinata.
 Pinata stick:  Covered with twine and decorated in the wedding theme. 

Many congratulations to the new Mr and Mrs!

Happy crafting everyone!
