So this is how it started...
Once all your layers are on and it is dry you are ready to start decorating.
Next I glued red crepe paper into the crevices that were going to be hard to get into so that those places would be covered and I ran one strip of red crepe paper around the bottom part of the top of the car (like just above the bumper so that part of the newspaper would be covered. Then I glued on the eyes which I drew on a piece of white paper and cut to size for a "windshield". Bobby then helped glue the crepe paper strips all over the car, again, we used 4" crepe paper strips. When that was done I added tin foil "hubcaps" and "fenders" attaching them with a glue gun. I also added the smile (which I just drew on a piece of white paper and glued to the front of the car.
ETA: Pics with windows (cut out of black paper and glued on with good old Elmer's.
Tips for making a piñata:
1. Seriously consider why you are making it. It takes a long time and can be wicked frustrating, so, if it isn't for a contest or self satisfaction you really need...think about just buying one.
2. Have A.LOT of gluesticks handy (it took us eight).
3. Have a plan and be willing to change it.
4. Give yourself a week to do it. I only gave myself two days and it was not really enough time.
5. Keep your sense of humor about you so when it looks silly (as mine does) you can still say you enjoyed yourself.
6. Blog about your experience, because it can be hard to find information on making piñatas and I didn't do a great job of taking pictures of the process so someone I know should do a better tutorial for the world!
