- Black Sharpie
Pinboard Craft Instructions
Step 1: Tracing and Cutting
Prepare the template patterns by printing and cutting them out. Trace the pinboard base pattern on the backing board (or any material that is hard). Download the template here.
Trace the separate patterns of the pinboard onto foam sheets. Download the template here.
Trace the flowers and leaves on glitter paper sheets and the front feet onto the same foam sheets you used previously. Download the template here.
Cut out all the traced items using scissors or an utility knife as necessary.
If you own a Cricut Explore or Maker, you can upload the images to Design Space and cut them that way.
Here are the PNG images for you to use (you will need to clean them up and remove the background for each image prior to saving as a cut file).

At this point, you should have a backing board base and three separate unicorn pin board parts (cut from craft foam). You should also have the decor pieces cut from glitter paper and the feet cut from the same craft foam as the body pieces.
Step 2: Attach Square to Base
Attach the rectangle foam on the rectangle part of the base using craft glue.
Step 3: Attach Unicorn Parts to Base
Attach the two other parts on the base to complete the right side (pinning side) of the unicorn pinboard.
Step 4: Attach Décor Pieces
Grab all the glitter cut-outs and attach them to the unicorn pinboard to decorate it. Start by attaching the horn, then work on the flowers one by one.
Add the leaf cut-outs in between the flowers.
Step 5: Give Your Unicorn A Face
Use a black sharpie to draw the face on the unicorn.
Step 6: Attach Front Feet
The last step is to glue the front feet to the front of the rectangular pinboard so that it looks like your unicorn is holding onto the board.
Ta-da! You have made a fun unicorn craft in a few simple steps! Attach the unicorn pinboard on a wall in your work space, a child’s room, or anywhere you want to show it off and start pinning!
TIP: This fun unicorn craft pinboard makes a great way to leave notes of encouragement and motivation for your daughter (or anyone)!
