Steps

  1. 1
    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.
