New 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!

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.

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.

  1. Hi Jonni, I’ve already made one unicorn mask for a child, who loved it. Now I am making another one for an adult friend, and it needs to be bigger, not smaller. You talk about making it smaller, but not bigger. Any advice on making the mask fit a bit bigger head. Thank you.

    • Hi Carol. You can cut the back seam of the cap and stretch it out a bit, and then fill in the space with a triangular piece of cardboard. But if you haven’t started yet, the easier way is to print the pattern larger. You can use the “poster” setting on your printer and print at 105% or 110%, or take the file to your local printer and ask him to enlarge it for you. That’s the easiest way, because they can print on bitter paper. I talked about making the patterns bigger in my latest video, here. Have fun!! 🙂

  2. Love your patterns and tutorials and I am excited to get making some! Would it be easy to remove the horn from the pattern to make this a horse mask? And I am also wondering about vision- I can’t tell if you are able to see through it if you are wearing it. thanks for any help/input!

    • Hi Katherine. You don’t have to put the horn on it – so yes, you could make this into a horse mask. The eye holes are in the fancy pattern on his forehead. If you want to put a horse harness on your mask, you’d need to design it so you can put holes to see out of that won’t be too obvious. Or paint his forehead black so the eye holes can’t be seen easily. That’s how I did it on the cow mask. Cows and horses (and unicorns) have eyes that are too far apart for humans to see out of. Have fun! 🙂

  3. Hi Jonni, the unicorn pattern is amazing! Thanks so much.
    Just a quick question. Do you apply paper strips & glue to the inside of the mask too?
