Materials for rocking Unicorn Craft:
- Cardstock (pinks, whites)
- Pipecleaners (assorted colors)
- Glue stick
- Single hole puncher
- Permanent marker
- Craft scissors
- Gold glitter paper
- First, use something round (I used a lid, about 4″ in diameter) to trace a circle onto the pink cardstock. Cut out and fold in half.
- Next, cut out the neck and head for the unicorn. I free-hand drawn.
- Cut out a long triangle from the gold glitter paper for the horn.
Prep all of these supplies along with a glue stick for the kids.
- Put the unicorn together. Then make 3 holes in the head and 3 for the tail.
- Choose 3 pipecleaners, cut in half and make a braid with one set of 3 pipecleaners. Secure the ends with one of the pipecleaners by wrapping it around.
- Thread the open ends of the pipecleaners through the holes in the head and secure my bending.
- Thread the other 3, unbraided pipecleaners through the holes for the tail and curl slightly using your hands.
- Lastly, draw a face using the permanent marker and your rocking unicorn craft is done!
