The other day I got two picture texts from one of my best friends who is throwing her son an Angry Birds themed party in a couple weeks. She was so excited about her Angry Birds King Pig piñata that she bought but said it was missing a crown. Immediately I knew what to do. Here is how I made this DIY Angry Birds King Pig Crown.
- Clean tall plastic container (I used a cottage chees container)
- Primer (optional)
- Yellow paint
- Paint brush
- Circle punch (optional)
- Blue cardstock
The first thing I said was, “Who the hell is King Pig?”. Being the mother of a VERY girly girl, I didn’t know much about Angry Birds. So she texted me his picture. Here is the piñata and the image.
Here is the cottage cheese container I used.
I used my awesome amplify technology Fiskar scissors (these can cut through anything).
Next, I roughly drew the lines onto the container using a marker and the image she sent me and cut out the crown. What’s great about this is that it doesn’t have to be perfect for two reasons, 1) it’s a cartoon and 2) it’s going on a piñata that’s going to be short lived.
I also decided to prime it because I already had the spray primer and I knew the paint would go on smoother…like butta!
…and it did! The yellow paint over the primer was so smooth.
Next I used a small circle punch to cut circles…
…and glued them to the crown.
That’s it! Does it work?
