Okay, guys here is the quick, hand-drawn Fortnite Loot Llama Template for you.
Print out all 6 pages, tape them together, and use that as a template to draw the image on your large flat cardboard box.
Fortnite Loot Llama Template (pdf)
Fortunately, I had most all of these materials on hand. I did pick-up some purple tissue paper and purple bows at the Dollar Store.
Fortnite Birthday Party Loot Llama Pinata
Holly (our sassy cat), picked out this Amazon box for me to use. But, any cardboard box that you have should be fine.
First, I pulled up a few Fortnite Loot Llama images on Google search. Then, I used a pencil to rough-draft a sketch of the Llama, then went back over it with a sharpie.
Next, I cut-out the drawing, placed it on another flat piece of cardboard and traced the image.
After cutting out the second image, I cut long, thin strips of cardboard to use as my edges to join the two llamas together.
You can attach all the pieces with either duct tape, shipping tape, or masking tape.
Fortnite Loot Llama continued (Fortnite Party Supplies)
Next, I paper mached the entire outside of the llama. For this, you can use Mod Podge or Elmer’s school glue mixed with a little bit of water, a paintbrush, white tissue paper, and scissors to cut the strips.
Once you have covered the llama in white tissue paper, let it dry overnight. I made the llama’s legs using rolled up cardboard and attached them to the bottom with duct tape.
I covered the outside of the legs with dark blue tissue paper. As you can see from the photos, you will be taking various colors of tissue paper, cutting short strips, and attaching each layer to the llama. You will continue alternating the colors until you get up near the neck.
I used purple tissue paper as far up as I could go. Then, I painted the face and head with some old purple paint.
Below are the PDF files you can print, cut out, and add to your llama pinata:
- Llama Eyes and harness hardware
- Brown Harness for Llama
- (1) Lock and pouch for Llama
- (2) Lock and pouch for Llama
Finally, apply the arrow page to the brown colored paper. I used my sharpie to add the little mark on the lock (see third photo).
I didn’t actually attach the saddle to my llama, as that is where I will be putting in all the candy. I’m going to use my Loot Llama as table decor during the party.
But, near the end of the party, I will attach a paperclip and twine to the llama and hang from the outdoor balcony.
Fortnite Pickaxe Harvesting Tool DIY (Fortnite Birthday Party Favors)
This was a Party Favorite!
Materials to Make a DIY Pickaxe:
plastic ninja nunchucks from The Dollar Store
cutting blade or scissors
Elmer’s glue (or homemade paste)
gray and black acrylic paint
**COST: $7.00 for 14 plastic “handles” from The Dollar Store
Template for Fortnite DIY Pickaxe:
Below is the template to use to make the Fortnite Pickaxe. Print this out on 8 1/2 x 11 white paper. Cut it out, place onto a piece of large, white foam board or cardboard and trace as many times as you will need.
You will need 2 traced pickaxe heads per pickaxe. Then, you can layer one piece of the pickaxe foamboard, your ninja handle, extra pieces of foam board and cardboard, and then the second pickaxe head.
So you are making a pickaxe “sandwich” of sorts. Layer them as thick as you want, then wrap it all with lots of duct tape so it will be secure on your handle. Then, continue with the instructions below.
Fortnite Pickaxe Head Template (PDF)
First, I picked up 7 of these plastic ninja nunchucks, to use as pickaxe handles. Then, using foam board and cardboard boxes, I traced a pickaxe head image onto both and cut out.
Next, I layered several pieces of foam board and cardboard together and taped to the plastic handle using duct tape. After that, I used toilet paper strips and glue paste to paper mache over the pickaxe.
About two hours later, and once the paper had dried, I used gray paint for the front, back, and side of the pickaxe head to make it look like metal or stone.
In the same way, let the gray paint dry overnight (see how I used the dog crate to hold up and separate the pickaxes for drying?).
The next morning, I put black paint on a paper plate and dipped a paper towel into it. I used this to go around the edges of each pickaxe head and around the base where the head and handle connect.
Next, use some twine to tie around the pickaxe head, so it looks like the twine is holding the pickaxe together. As you can see, the point is to try and make some slightly sturdy, but soft, real-ish looking pickaxes so the kids can go crazy outside with them.
I think we have accomplished this. : )
Fortnite Battle Royale Location Signs – Outdoor Fortnite Birthday Party Ideas
For this project, I used my Silhouette Cameo 3, with white vinyl for the letters.
Materials to Make Fortnite Battle Royale Location Signs:
black foam board
cutting blade or scissors
white, vinyl letters (printed on Cameo 3); You could also paint white letters or buy white sticky letters
skewers or thin sticks of some kind
**COST: Nothing. I had all of these supplies on-hand.
To begin, cut a standard size piece of black foam board into four, even pieces. And, make one of the ends into an arrow.
Next, ask your kids to name some of their favorite Battle Royale Locations. There are up to 20 locations.
Once you have your list, go ahead and enter these into your Cameo software (using various fonts for each name), and print out on white vinyl.
Then, place the white letters onto the black foam board. The stickers will peel off easily onto the foam board. You want to turn about half of your location names in one direction and half going in the other direction.
After that, position a wood skewer on the back of your sign and tape into place with duct tape. I placed my Fortnite location signs all around a tree we have in the backyard, near the kids’ fort.
Fortnite Bandages DIY – Fortnite Birthday Party Decorations
Bandages are a common consumable healing item in Fortnite Battle Royale.
Materials to Make Fortnite Bandages:
several rolls of white paper towels
red construction paper and white copy paper
I was in a rush, so I downloaded this printable: paper towel label
**Cost: $2.00 for paper towels, $2.95 download pdf
Print-out these labels, or make your own out of red and white paper. Attach to a paper towel with double-sided tape. Done!
These are going to look great as party props!
Fortnite Photo Booth Props DIY – Fortnite Birthday Party Favors and Decorations
Everyone loved using the Fortnite Props & Backdrop!
Materials to Make Photo Booth Props:
tape or duct tape
buy download here: photo booth printables
**COST: $6.95 for pdf download
Print out on white cardstock, cut out a small piece of white foam board, and attach a wood skewer to both with some strong tape. You are now ready for group photos!
Fortnite Battle Royale – The FORT – Outdoor Birthday Party Decorations
Materials to Make the Fort:
lots of Camouflage Netting
twine or thick string
black foamboard and white letters for the signs
Find areas on your fort, treehouse, or building to place your camouflage netting for the best coverage from your opponents.
We also bought and used some recyclable Cardboard Box Forts that you can buy on Amazon.com (see below).
You could also cut open any large cardboard boxes you have and spray paint them to look camouflaged (black, brown, green) and get the same effect.
We kept these forts upright by using wooden stakes and a heavy duty stapler. You could also use duct tape and attach to the wooden stakes.
Be sure to keep the forts dry and put them away after using for the party so they can be reused again for any nerf wars.
Since they are cardboard they are lightweight and foldable, but if they get wet from being left out overnight it will ruin them.
Remember to Reuse, Recycle, and Re-Love!
This was such a fun birthday party project to put together! Stay tuned for more photos, parties, and tutorials!
