You start off with a paper bag. You can use big grocery sacks if you want, but we just used lunch sacks.
Fill it about 1/2 way with candy
and the other half with newspaper or magazine wads. Roll the top twice and staple to secure.
Make fringe with strips of tissue paper, put a good amount of glue on the top of your fringe, then glue it layer by layer (starting at the bottom) all the way up your bag, overlapping each layer of tissue paper.
Hole punch 2 holes at the top, lace it with some yarn and your pinata is done! Super simple. I love it!
