Is it just me or are unicorns a “thing” right now? They are everywhere you look and my little niece is absolutely obsessed with them! I must admit when she came over on the weekend and asked to make ‘loads of unicorn crafts’ i was a bit stumped. Unicorns are not something my son has really ever been interested in so it was a bit of a challenge to come up with some fun crafts for her to make. We got there in the end though and i absolutely love this accordion paper unicorn craft!

You will need

  • Thick white paper OR White Card
  • Coloured paper
  • Marker pen OR googly eyes
  • Scissors
  • Glue

How to make this Paper unicorn craft

First you will need to cut out a circle for your unicorn’s head. Then, cut out two horseshoe shapes to make the legs and body. You’ll need to make sure the legs are equal shape/size, the easiest way to do this is to fold you card in half and cut out two at once or cut one out and draw around it.

Now to cut out the shapes for your unicorn’s face/head. You will need two outer ears, two slightly smaller inner ears, an oval nose and a unicorn horn.

Glue the pieces down in position on the circle head piece.

Give your unicorn two eyes and then you’ll need to make your mane and tail. We did this by cutting out and gluing down some coloured strips but alternatively you could use markers to draw them on.

Next to make your spring! Take two strips of paper and glue them together to make a right angle.

Then take turns folding each strip over the other. Once you reach the end secure the two lose ends together with glue or tape.

Glue your unicorn’s head down in place on its legs. Then stick one end of your spring down on the inside of it’s front legs and the other end down on the inside of its back legs. Your super cute paper unicorn is finished!
