If you have extra coins left over, you can always include them in the Loot Llama pinata.

Okay, guys here is the quick, desenhada à mão Fortnite Loot Llama Template para você.

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 Birthday Party Ideas and DIY Decorations Season 6

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

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.

Fortnite Birthday Party Ideas e Decorações DIY

Below are the PDF files you can print, cut out, and add to your llama pinata:

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

This was a Party Favorite!

Materials to Make a DIY Pickaxe:

  • plastic ninja nunchucks from The Dollar Store

  • marcador de sharpie

  • cutting blade or scissors

  • foam board

  • cartão

  • fita adesiva

  • Elmer’s glue (or homemade paste)

  • papel higiênico

  • pincel

  • gray and black acrylic paint

  • guita

  • **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 DIY Birthday Party Ideas and Decorations

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

Fortnite Birthday Party Ideas and DIY Decorations Season 6

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

  • fita adesiva

  • **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 Ideas e Decorações DIY

Bandages are a common consumable healing item in Fortnite Battle Royale.

Materials to Make Fortnite Bandages:

  • several rolls of white paper towels

  • fita dupla face

  • 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

Everyone loved using the Fortnite Props & Backdrop!

Materials to Make Photo Booth Props:

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 Birthday Party Ideas and DIY Decorations Season 6

Fortnite Battle Royale – The FORT

Fortnite Birthday Party Ideas and DIY Decorations Season 6

Materials to Make the Fort:

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.

Lembrar de Reuse, Recycle, and Re-Love!

This was such a fun birthday party project to put together! Stay tuned for more photos, parties, and tutorials!

28 Comments on Fortnite Birthday Party Ideas and DIY Decorations

    • Hi Lindsay – and Thank You! So, I bought the plain blue gift bags at the Dollar Tree (2-pack). Then I went on Etsy.com to a vendor named Sarah Marie Kays Print Shop and downloaded the digital file for the drop bags. I was just looking at her shop and I don’t think she has them listed anymore. But, I did see lots of other Etsy sellers with digital downloads like hers that are extremely similar. So, I would recommend you go on Etsy.com, in the search bar type in “Fortnite gift bags, or Fortnite favor bags” and there will be lots of vendors that will pop up and you can choose which one you like the best. The other thing you could do, if you are handy with either PicMonkey or Canva, is to create the rectangular crate image and put the words DROP across the front of it. Then print it out and attach to your bags with double-sided tape or glue. Good Luck with everything! Let me know how it goes! : ) Jennifer @derbylanedreams.

  1. Ur ideas and printables are awesome! I am having a Fortnite birthday party for my 12 year old on January 12th and I can’t wait to try out some of ur ideas! Thanks so much! And I will share pics after the party!

  2. I am almost ready for my Son’s Fortnite Battle Royale Birthday party with a Nerf war included! I made the Piñata and it came out adorable!!! I found another link that used a washer and small zip strips to form a hook to hang my piñata. I am going to be so sad to see the kids destroy the Loot Llama – well if they can! I made this thing probably a little to solid! Thanks for the great post. One thing I am struggling with is finding a place to make a cake. Where did you get yours?

    • Hi Beth! Your party is going to be AWESOME! I ordered the Fortnite cake topper on Amazon.com. I got a sheet cake from Publix and asked them to put grass (green icing) all over the top and sides. Then, you just place the cake topper right in the middle. It will fit best on a half sheet cake. I got 1/4 sheet cake and I had to trim down the cake topper.

      Type in this text at the search bar and it should take you right to the cake topper I used:

      Have a Blast!!! Jennifer @derbylanedreams

  3. What an awesome party you created for your son. Very talented lady indeed!
    On your party table there is a metal bucket with mini llama heads popping out from the candy..I absolutely love this idea! Just wondering if there is a link for printable mini llama?

    • Hi Tracy! Thank you so much! Yes, those mini llama heads were so cute! They are actually cupcake toppers, but I used double-sided tape and stuck them onto flat suckers so they would stay up in the olive bucket. Any printables that I purchased for the Fortnite party were from here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/SarahMarieKays . All of her printable downloads are very reasonably priced and she does excellent illustrations. I believe I went to her etsy store and purchased the Fortnite cupcake toppers. Hopefully she still has the same ones. If you don’t see them, you can always message her and ask if it is still available.

      I hope this helps! : ) Jennifer@derbylanedreams

  4. Last night, I decided to do fortnite for trunk or treat at our church (as one of my sons was playing fortnite and it got me thinking), and then I started looking up ideas and found your blog. I printed out the templates and have 2 days to put something together, but most of it seems doable. I’m not crafty at all, but you made it easy! I’m excited to work on this over the next couple of days. Thanks for the Etsy links to get some of the labels. Big time saver to do that as opposed to making the jars and everything like I initially thought I’d have to do. And thank you for keeping it simple, cheap, and fun!

    • Hi Mandy! Thanks for your kind comments! And, you are welcome! Yes, everything is definitely doable — cheap, simple, and so fun to use! You will have no problem making any of these DIY items. We have some of the fortnite pickaxes left over from our fortnite party and my kids and their friends love to chase each other with them! (Okay, I may do that too, on occasion : ) I am excited for you! I had the best time making all this stuff, and the kids’ reactions were priceless! So worth it! Have a great “Trunk or Treat” weekend! Jennifer @derbylanedreams

  5. Thank you for all the inspiration. We are preparing for our first Trunk or Treat this weekend and we wanted to go with a FortNite theme. We used your template for the axe and the llama (not to use as a piñata but for decoration). I’m so thrilled how it all came out and am excited to see the kid’s faces when they come to our car this weekend!
    Daria

    • Hi Daria — I am so excited for you! Kids absolutely love the Fortnite theme and everything that goes along with it! It sounds like it’s going to be a fantastic event! I’m so glad that you made the fortnite pickaxe and fortnite loot llama pinata. The children will get a big kick out of everything! Happy Trunk or Treat! Jennifer @derbylanedreams

    • Hi Daria! Thank you so much for your kind words!

      So, just this morning, I created a PDF template for the pickaxe and added it in my post, below the Fortnite Pickaxe section. It’s not any specific measurements, just hand drawn, which is what I did with the originals. And, actually, I like each one to be a little bit different — it makes them seem more realistic!

      Remember, you can get the twine and handles at the Dollar Tree, Dollar General, etc. If you can’t find the handles, I’ll bet you could use some thick branches from your yard, cut down to size.

      Good luck! And let me know if you have any more questions or need help in making them! Have an awesome day!

      Jennifer @derbylanedreams

  6. I have read this the day after hosting a fortnite themed party for my two boys. I made 2 different pinatas, similar to your idea. I have one question, how did you get the pinatas to stay hanging up on the string? after a couple of wacks, my pinatas where cordless on the floor, and dad had to carefully hold the tops, so the kids could continue to bash them open.
    Many thanks. 🙂

    • Hi Belinda — I bet your Fortnite Birthday Party was a Blast! The Loot Llama pinata I made was extremely heavy, once I put all of the candy inside. I had the same problem as you did – at first, we had attached a D-ring type hook to the back of the pinata, but the hook broke off of the cardboard. So, the only thing left to do quickly was to tie a noose in the rope and wrap it around the Llama’s neck. I know it sounds terrible (my husband’s idea), but it was very effective and worked through about 40 more really hard hits. So, I guess next time I make a pinata I will make it smaller, not put quite as much candy inside, and plan for a heavy duty hanger and attachment. If you look at some of the pinata pics, you can see the rope tied directly around the Loot Llama’s neck. Not exactly what I had in mind, but we had to come up with something, and fast! The good news is that the pinata was such a big hit! The kids loved it! I hope your Fortnite party was Awesome!!! Jennifer @derbylanedreams

  7. Oi Jennifer,

    Great blog post by the way – congrats! Just wanted to share another idea my husband found online a couple of months or so ago while shopping for gift ideas for my 14-year old Fortnite addict son – it turned out unbelievable! It was a Fortnite inspired personalized Bobblehead from MyCustomBobblehead.com You could find them here: MyCustomBobblehead.com/search?q=fortnite They customized the Fortnite bobblehead with my son’s face based on a picture I sent them. The resemblance is so realistic that my husband and I couldn’t believe it. Just thought it’d be cool to share the joy – Cheers! – Susie

  8. I do not have a creative bone in my body so when I came across your website, I felt like I hit the lottery jackpot! I had 2 weeks to put together a Fortnite birthday party for my son and did not know where and how to start. You had EVERYTHING already laid out with links to Amazon and you made it extremely easy for a fail-proof EPIC birthday celebration. Hands down, if anyone follows your very detailed step by step creative fortnite projects, everyone will have an EPIC, memorable birthday party. Thank you so much for your quick responses to all my questions and thank you so much for your support the last 2 weeks. You are amazing and I look forward to see what other birthday ideas you have in the future. All the work my husband I put in for the fortnite birthday party was well worth it with all the little details to make it EPIC. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!

    • Hi Dee – Thank you so much for your kind words. I am thrilled that you liked my post and I’m really happy that you could use the info to make your son’s Fortnite birthday party such an exciting and memorable event! I am sure he and all the kids at the party appreciated your hard work and attention to the EPIC details! : ) Way to go!!!
