- Oval balloon
- Colored tissue paper
- Paper for eyes
- Box cutter
Step 10Fasten a cord around the donkey, to create a loop on top for hanging the pinata. Tape the rope into place. Make sure the rope is positioned so that the donkey will hang evenly.
Step 11Repeat Steps 4 and 5, covering the entire donkey with another layer of papier mâché, in a weave-like pattern, and allow to dry. Cover the cord that is secured to the body of the donkey, but do not cover the loop for hanging.
Step 12Cut tissue paper into long narrow strips and fray one side of the strip. Cut enough tissue paper to cover the entire donkey.
Step 13Cover the donkey with the tissue paper. Start at the bottom of the donkey, and apply a bit of the flour-water mixture along the non-frayed edge of the tissue paper and apply to the donkey. Add the next layer, so that the top row overlaps the bottom row. Continue until the donkey is covered. Add strips of tissue paper for a tail, and cut out eyes from paper and glue in place. To fill with candy, use a box cutter to cut a small flap in the top of the body, after the tissue paper dries.
