DIY UNICORN PIÑATA

Yay Balloon and Unicorn Pinata from Magical Unicorn Party | Black Twine | Itsy Belle Studio

Directions

  1. Remove existing hair and eyes from the piñata.
  2. Spray paint the entire piñata white & allow it to dry.
  3. Cut folded sheets of tissue paper for the mane and tail cutting with a fringe paper cutter. As an alternative, you can use an x-acto knife and ruler cutting every 1/4″, leaving around 2″ of room at the top fold uncut.
  4. For the mane, first measure a 3″ piece from the long side of a piece of cardstock. Cut it out, fold it in half.  Trim paper to fit the Pinata’s neck.
  5. Glue fringed tissue paper to the outside of the cardstock on either side until you’ve create a full mane. Then glue the mane onto the neck of the piñata.
  6. For the tail, cut out a 2” x 1” piece of cardstock. Glue the fringed tissue paper onto one side to create the tail. Then glue the tail down to the backend of the piñata.
  7. For the unicorn horn, use the Itsy Belle Studio printable Unicorn Horn Hat file. Print, Cut and fold per instructions and then glue onto the unicorn head over the existing horn.
  8. Print out Itsy Belle Studio unicorn eyes onto white paper, cut out the eyes and glue them onto each side of the piñata head.
  9. Fill your piñata with unicorn candy & pastel treats!

Styling tips

Itsy Belle Studio shares its top tips for pulling off this event.

Tip 1

Personalizing printables: Open the PDF files for the printables in Adobe Acrobat and click on provided text boxes to add the birthday girl’s name.

Tip 2

Printing the party backdrop: Get a quote for large format printing from your local print shop (such as Office Depot) to print the backdrops. 

Tip 3

Assembling favors: Use a 1/16th inch hole punch to punch the unicorn favor cards and slide the lollipop stick through the hole, securing with a piece of tape on the back.

Tip 4

DIY unicorn pinata: We purchased an inexpensive unicorn pinata from Amazon, striped it down, spray painted it white, and added our own tissue paper and embellishments to match our party’s color scheme!
