A backpack is a school necessity with all of the books and supplies students have to tote around, but that doesn't mean it has to be boring! School might be a little more exciting if your student felt like a magical unicorn walking around campus everyday, don't you think? A unicorn backpack can help! With a few craft supplies and Aleene's Quick Dry Fabric Fusion, you can turn a simple backpack into your student's new favorite bag. (And hey, maybe they'll actually start getting excited about heading back to school!)
- Unicorn horn
- Felt (desired colors for ears - we used beige and light pink)
- Tulip® Dimensional Fabric Paint - Black Slick
- Faux flowers
To make the coolest backpack ever (a.k.a. a unicorn backpack), you only need a few supplies! We chose a white backpack to start with, but your unicorn backpack can be any color. If you decide to go with a darker bag, make sure your Tulip Dimensional Paint is in a color that will stand out (for the eyes).
First cut out the ears from felt in an almond shape, leaving a straight edge along the bottoms. Cut the light pink parts smaller than the beige for the inner parts of the ears.
Glue the light pink parts of ears on top of the larger beige parts of ears and let dry. Add a small dot of glue to one of the bottom corners of each ear and pinch the other corner in place over the dot of glue. Hold with a clothespin until each ear dries. This creates a dimensional effect for the ears.
Glue the ears in place above the front pouch on backpack and let dry.
Glue the horn on bag in between the ears and let dry.
Glue the faux flowers across the top of pouch and under ears and horn to make a flower crown. Make sure not to get too close to the zipper!
Use the Dimensional Paint to create eyes and eyelashes on pouch under flower crown. Let dry completely.
So adorable! Now your student is ready to make magic this new school year!
