Step 3: Fill the heart with candy, confetti, or leave plain to use your piñata as decor. Place lid back on heart – no need to secure it on as the fringe will hold it together

Step 4:  Cut strips of crepe paper about the width of the heart. Then cut the strips in half horizontally and use scissors to cut fringe.  I went about 2/3 to 3/4 of the way up to crepe paper to create the fringe. One tip is to stack the strips together and fringe them all at once to save time!

Step 5: Glue (or tape) the fringe starting at the bottom of the DIY Conversation Heart Piñatas and continue to work your way up until the whole front side is covered. Trim any excess fringe on the sides to help keep the heart shape.

Step 6: Next fringe the side of the heart starting at the bottom using the same method. Continue to create layers of fringe until you reach the top center of the heart. Then start again on the other side and work your way back up to the top center.
