How To Make Your Unicorn Craft

Measure the strips of paper long enough and wide enough for your toilet paper tube and then cut to size. You can choose any colour you want to pick. I think purple, pinks and blues go well when making a DIY Unicorn.

Wrap the paper around the toilet paper tube and secure with glue. This creates the body of your DIY Unicorn.

Repeat using all the different colours you that you have picked out. You can make just one or a whole collection of Handmade Unicorns.

Put 4 fingers together and then wrap yarn around them over and over until you have a thick “circle” of yarn.

Next you will need to gently pull the yarn off your fingers. Tie the yarn up in the middle with another piece of yarn.

Cut the circle of yarn on the opposite side of the tied up portion.

You will have yarn of equal length on each side of the tied portion.

Tie the yarn a second time on one side to secure and then cut the yarn into 2 pieces.

One will be shorter than the other. This creates the hair for your DIY unicorn.

Glue the smaller chunk of yarn inside the top of the toilet paper tube, leaving some of it hang out over the toilet paper tube.

Glue the larger chunk of yard on the middle of the toilet paper tube in the back. This is the DIY unicorn’s tail.

Now you can use the scissors to style your unicorn hair and make the unicorn craft unique.

Cut a horn from gold glitter foam and glue on top of the yarn hair. Cut ears from cardstock, pinch and the secure with a bit of glue.

Glue the ears on top of the yarn hair. Dig the bottom of the ears into the hair so you don’t see any icky parts.

Draw eyes onto the toilet paper tubes with black marker.

Dip your finger into pink paint and give your unicorn some rosy cheeks.

Your toilet paper tube unicorn craft is now finished! How many will you make?
