Unicorn Pillow

Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we’re no stranger to unicorn crafts. Most of our time is spent thinking about unicorns and when we’re not thinking about them, we’re thinking up fun other crafts to make. (like these fun unicorn headbands) This unicorn pillow is one of our favorites and we’re so excited to share it with all of you. 

This Unicorn Pillow is a great craft for a rainy day, as a birthday party activity, or for your child to make as a gift for a special friend. Moms and older kids can use a glue gun but tacky craft glue will work great for younger kids, with longer drying time. The best part about this adorable pillow for me was that it cost about $1 to make as felt is usually 3 for $1, even when not on sale. We had leftover stuffing and black puffy paint in our craft supply, if you need to pick it up it will cost, of course, and be more but you will have a lot of leftover for future projects.

Materials

  • 3 colors of felt
  • Black puffy paint
  • Permanent marker

Tools

  • Scissors
  • Glue gun or tacky glue

Instructions

  1. Print out the free template from my Unicorn Pin Board to use as a pattern. I varied my instructions and cut out each of the three mane pieces and horn rather than leaving them intact on the main image, set aside.
  2. Take the head pattern and trace it on the backside of your chosen felt color, we used a pretty mint green. 
  3. Cut twice, we cut ours out at the same time so that it would be exact.
  4. Now trace and cut out your horn and mane pieces on different colored or patterned felt. You will want to cut these double as well so that both sides of the pillow are finished off. Once they are cut glue them back to back and let dry. gluing seams on unicorn pillow
  5. Place your unicorn head pieces back to back and line them up well, lift up a few inches of the top piece along the bottom and run a bead of hot glue along the bottom, press sides together firmly. 
  6. Grab your mane pieces and your horn, slip them into place between your two headpieces and glue into place on the bottom piece of felt only. Continue gluing the headpieces together around the mane leaving just a small opening for stuffing. If you are working with the tacky glue you will want to let it dry completely before continuing on.
  7. Stuff your pillow as full as you would like, using a pencil or skewer to push it into the corners. Glue the last portion in place. stuffing the unicorn pillow
  8. Use black puffy paint to draw on eyelids/lashes and some muzzle detail, allow to dry completely before placing it on your bed. adding eyes to the unicorn pillow with puffy paint finished images of DIY unicorn craft
