How to Make a Star Wars Pinata

As a child my family bought us pinatas for most of our birthday parties. It was a real treat in the 70s and 80s. Even for my son's 5th - Jedi Training Party - I bought a Darth Vader pinata- which totally shocked the kids as it was lowered down upon them.

But recently I started thinking about how could I make my own. I just completed by first paper mache project with my daughter and it turned out really nice. I figure now that I have build my confidence with a 1st grade bird house project- maybe I could make a HUGE STAR WARS pinata. I thought I would share this great blog on making the TIE FIGHTER.
