This DIY Mini Football Piñata is definitely a TOUCHDOWN! I believe that #everypartyneedsapiñata so I couldn’t let the Super Bowl come and go without creating a mini piñata for the big game. You could absolutely make a bunch of these in around an hour. How fun would they be to handout full of fun surprises for the little ones who attend your Super Bowl party?! Might I suggest packing them with a few boredom busters — like a small pack of crayons, stickers, this adorable bingo printable from Studio DIY and these, they are definitely a must-have — with the game lasting around four hours, I am sure they will love whatever you hide inside.

Small Toys, Candy, Treats and Confetti
- Print and cut out the Football Template.
- Trace the template twice onto a piece of cardboard and cut the shapes out using scissors or a utility knife.
- Cut out 1 inch wide strips of cardboard for the edge of the piñata.
- Assemble the piñata base using packing tape to secure the pieces of cardboard together. Before sealing up the piñata base make sure to stuff some surprises inside.
- Cover the piñata base with brown tissue paper.
- Cut the tissue into 1 inch wide strips and fringe using the fringe scissors.
- Attach the fringed strips to the piñata base using double-sided tape or a glue stick.
- When you have covered the entire piñata with fringed strips, cut out four strips and two pieces resembling the laces on a football from white cardstock, attach to the piñata with double-sided tape.
