Oh my goodness there are endless DIY’s to make for a birthday or celebration, so many amazing ideas on Pinterest. As my birthday was approaching I knew that I wanted to create a fun DIY. I’ve only seen the DIY number sign piñata created for a one or three year old so I was excited to take it on as a soon-to-be 23-year-old lol! I will give some warning… this DIY is easy but takes A LONG TIME. We probably should have made our strips a little bigger so we wouldn’t have to cut as many. Either way, we are super happy with how it turned out and I can’t wait to make more in the future! The 3 even got passed down to Becky’s little cousin for her birthday. So precious!

All of the steps are in our video tutorial linked below!
