DIY Cinco de Mayo Decorations: Fiesta Fringe Piñata Wreath

I couldnt believe how easy it is to make this fiesta pinata-inspired wreath! You can make one in 30 mins or less, perfect for Cinco De Mayo Every April, the entire city of San Antonio partakes in two full weeks of parties, parades, and merriment known simply as “Fiesta“. As part of the tradition, Fiesta wreaths bursting with color are hung on front doors across the city. While Fiesta has officially come to a close for this year, I’m keeping the party going with this Fiesta-inspired piñata wreath. I like it so much that I think it will go perfectly with all my DIY Cinco de Mayo decorations!

Cinco De Mayo Decor: Such a great idea using fringed crepe paper to make a colorful fiesta wreath I’ve always wanted to try making my own piñata but have been intimidated by the amount of work and time involved. This piñata wreath was the perfect alternative – I still got to play around with fringing scissors (so fun!) and it was simple to make. Plus, unlike a piñata that gets smashed – this wreath will stay looking good for many fiestas to come!

How to Make Piñata Wreath

1. Wrap a length of crepe paper streamer around the wreath form to gauge how long of a strip you’ll need. Cut several strips in each color (I used 7 different colors of streamers and cut approx. 50 strips for this wreath). Fringe each strip using your fringing scissors, making cuts about halfway up the height of the streamer.
