DIY Unicorn Banner Craft – Free Template Included

Unicorn Banner

We are back with another DIY project, and this time it is a Unicorn Banner. If you have been following this blog for a while now, then you surely know that my daughter is obsessed with these magical creatures (hence the blog name). She has a birthday this month, so putting together a few homemade goodies for her big day. The first cab off the rank for the birthday surprises is this cute banner. I think it will be perfect on the front door with a few balloons to let parents know this is where the party is. I also think that is will be a really cute addition to her bedroom after the big day.
