To create the cocktail glass, shape and trim a piece of cardboard into a loose cone-like shape and secure with masking tape. Seal the smaller end with a circle of cardboard to form the base.
Use a hole punch to create a hole in the cocktail glass. Attach a hanging string to the top open edge
Cut a cardboard circle to fit the opening of the cone. Cut 2 small holes in this circle. Then, seal up your piñata with masking tape. Fill the piñata with candy.
Make a cocktail umbrella out of another cardboard cone and hot glue a rolled up tube of paper to the inside for an umbrella stick.
Use double-sided tape to decorate the umbrella with colourful crepe paper fringe. You can also make a cocktail straw too.
Use double-sided tape to decorate the cocktail glass with crepe paper fringe as well.
Insert the umbrella and straw through the holes you cut earlier. Create a citrus slice out of cardboard and crepe, then hot glue it on. Smash and enjoy!
