Unicorn Mask Pattern
This Unicorn Mask is easy to make.
You just print the pattern and put it on the cardboard from 4 cereal boxes. Then add just one layer of paper mache.
You can paint your unicorn to look exactly how you want it, and give it a beautiful mane with your choice of ribbon or yarn.
It’s sure to be a huge hit at your next dress-up party!
How to make your unicorn mask:
Finished size: About 12.5 inches (31.75 cm) high, 5.5 inches (13.97 cm) wide and 14 inches (35.56 cm) deep – but the finished height depends on how long you make the horn. You can also adjust the size if the mask is too big. I tell you how to do that in the instructions that come with the pattern.
My downloadable PDF Patterns come with full instructions.
There’s no waiting for your pattern to arrive, and no shipping costs, so you can start on your project right away.

How I finished my mask (but you can finish yours any way you like):
To Make Your Unicorn Mask You Will Need:
- The Pattern
- Access to a Printer
- Copy paper or full-sheet labels
- Glue stick if using copy paper for pattern
- Cardboard from 4 standard-sized cereal boxes.
- Sharp scissors for cutting cereal box cardboard
- Clear plastic tape and masking tape Note: Don’t use disappearing gift wrap tape – it isn’t strong enough.
- ● 1.5” (3.81 cm) Styrofoam ball for the eyes.
- Aluminum foil
- Glue gun
- Paper strips and paste (find recipes here) I used lightweight brown paper with Titebond III Wood Glue.
- Acrylic gesso or spray primer
- Acrylic paint and varnish, any colors you choose
- Yarn, ribbon or raffia for the mane
* If purchasing cardboard in place of the cereal boxes, it will be sold as “light chipboard.” The thickness will be about 24pt or 1/41 of an inch. Medium or heavy chipboard is too stiff to bend well.
