This is my first post.  I've gotten some really great ideas from Craftster in the last few months and hope to be able to contribute to others as well.   Cheesy

My daughter just turned 8 and we had a plants vs zombies birthday party for her.  We are all in love (except my husband) with the game and play it on many consoles...

She asked for pinatas and I made her 4 of her favorite characters into papier mache pinatats.  They were lots of fun to do and held up well for the beatings.  I made a peashooter, wallnut, zombie head, and cherry bomb.  I also made two wallnuts that we used for wallnut bowling.  Enjoy!

These are so FUN!! I love plants vs zombies too Smiley. The eyes on your zombie head are cracking me up!

Did you make these with balloons?

Thank you for sharing!

Thanks!  Yes, I started with balloons and covered with newspaper strips dipped in flour/water solution and added features as needed with newspaper and duct tape.

**LOVE**  This is so hilarious, my son would love to have a pinata like this for his birthday.  Nice work!

those are great pinatas!

I would absolutely love to have a personal Halloween swap! I'm interested in jewelry, hair accessories, soap, and anything that inspires you on my Pinterest

These are so awesome!  It's a shame they got beaten!
