I would like to thank Jenny W Chan from Origami Tree for the awesome video on how to make a DIY Minecraft Creeper Pinata. I organized it into a wiki for anyone with a hearing impairment, or for those who just prefer to read the steps. Hope you enjoy it. :)
Hi, guys, so today I'll be showing you how to do my first ever Minecraft craft, and that's this Creeper Pinata over here, it has fringes at the bottom and a ribbon at the top, so it's super cute and very easy to do
I think the kids really would love that as it has candy inside as well.

To make the Creeper Pinata, you need a small tissue box, this is 4 1/4"x 4 3/8"x 5 1/8"
You need 2 sheets of A4 paper, which is 8 1/2"x 11"
I am going to use green ones but you can feel free to use a white as well.
You need some green tissue paper
and I'd be linking that to the video description.
Packaging or masking tape
A piece of Ribbon to hang the Pinata when it's ready
First, empty the candy into the tissue box
Then sealed it off with some packing tape
Take your first sheet of paper and measure 6cm from the top and draw a line
Take your second sheet of paper and measure 2.5cm from the top and draw a line
Next, take a pair of scissors and cut along the lines that you just drew on both sheets of papers
Then divide both sheets of papers into four by folding it in half then folding it in half again
Next, unfold the folds that you just created on both sheets and cut along the lines you just fold it
Now, I have four sheets that are a little bit larger than the other ones
These larger ones are for this sides of the tissue box
The two of these smaller ones will be used for the top and bottom sides of the tissue box
I am going to glue all the tissue onto the tissue box
Now, you are done with the base layer of the Creeper Pinata
Stack a couple of sheets of tissue paper together, I'll be using three sheets
Fold the entire sheets in half
Cut one inch of strips along the entire sheet of tissue paper
Take a stack of strips and fold it into forth, so fold it in half and fold it in half again
Cut along the bottom side of the strips till you get near the edge of the strip
Once you unfold it, you will see that all the fringe is created
Next, we are going to repeat the same thing for the remaining strips
Once you've cut fringes for all of your strips, you are ready to place it onto the Pinata.
When you start gluing the fringes to the Pinata, make sure that you're working from the bottom
For every layer, you are going to leave a bit of space so that the fringes from the bottom layer can reveal itself
Basically, you are going to continue doing this until the six sides of the Pinata are covered
Now, I'm going to trim off some the extra fringes
I am done decorating the sides of the Pinata, I'm ready to work on the top and the bottom
Before I do that, I am going to make a hole either in the center of the top side of the Pinata, or at one of the corners
I need to do that so I can dangle a piece of ribbon from the hole
I am going to cut a little hole over here with my pair of scissors
Take this piece of ribbon and tie a knot at the end
Then stick this knot into the hole
Now I am going to decorate the top and the bottom
Glue each strip and place it on the top side starting from the bottom
Trim the extra sides of the strips
Once you're done covering all the six sides of the pinata, you are ready to glue the Creeper's face on
there is a free template at
if you want to print it out.
Hold three strips together and glue them together from the middle
Place these stripes at the bottom of the Creeper
Now, you're completely done with your Pinata Creeper from Minecraft
