7 DIY Rainbow Unicorn Costume Ideas
This amazing no sew felt unicorn mane is a show stopper! All you need is a ton of felt and hot glue. You could even skip the cape and just glue the rainbow mane to a hoodie, making this even easier.
Here’s another felt mane that takes the costume above up a few notches! Felt mane, felt flowers, sewn ears, and a DIY ribbon-edged tutu make this a bright fun, but time-consuming costume. It looks amazing if you have the patience!
I’m loving the look of this yarn mane – the thinner “hairs” look even more like a mane except it looks like the mane of a stuffed toy unicorn, which is so adorable for a little kid!
If your little one specifically wants to be Rainbow Dash or just loves the idea of a rainbow unicorn, this video tutorial is awesome! It requires temporary hair color and colorful extensions so a bit more involved, but the finished look is pretty amazing.
Here’s another awesome costume using fake hair extensions. This whole costume is pretty epic! The gold mask, the furry leg warmers, the gold tights. Unfortunately, while the photographer shares lots of amazing shots, she doesn’t spill any details on how she made or where she bought the costume pieces. It’s still great inspiration if you’re crafty though!
If you have a fabric store nearby, finding fun colorful fur makes for an easy-to-put-together unicorn costume! Loving the cotton candy stripes.
My felt unicorn mask template is super easy and really fun to customize. I’ve made unicorn masks in tons of color combos for local craft fairs. Kiddos love wearing them for pretend play and they’re great unicorn party favors too! Download the free template and make your own to complement your unicorn costume.
