Anything can be a piñata, so why not make your favorite things into custom piñatas? Well, that’s just what Kelly of Studio DIY did with this quirky DIY Dancing Girls Emoji Piñata project!

I was late to jump on the emoji bandwagon, but I jumped on HARD when I finally gave in. They just say so much, don’t they? Of course, we all have our favorites, but the dancing girls just happen to be one of mine.

Using a couple of fairy piñatas that she picked up in downtown LA’s unofficial piñata district, Kelly went to work with paint, tissue paper, and a glue gun to make the generic piñatas her own. This project is a great reminder that almost anything can be customized into something unique and personal!
