How to make Unicorn ornaments
Start by printing the free unicorn ornament template and follow the instructions below.
Trace the patterns on the selected colored craft papers from the given template. The template includes 2 outer ear patterns, 2 inner ear patterns, 1 horn pattern, 1 mouth pattern (bottom part of the unicorn’s face), 2 blush patterns, 5 spiral flower patterns and 6 leaf patterns.
Attach the inner ear parts (pink) on the outer ear parts (same color you chose for the unicorn head). Glue the ears on the 2 sides of the unicorn head’s top end. Glue the mouth pattern on the bottom side of the head.
Glue the 2 blush patterns on both cheeks. Use black sharpie to draw the eyes, nose and mouth of the unicorn.
Take the horn cut out and apply golden craft glitter all over it.
Attach the horn on the back side of the unicorn head’s top end; in the middle of both ears.
How to make paper flowers
Create flowers with the spiral patterns. Simply roll the spiral from the outer edge all the way to its center and then glue the rolled part with the center to secure it. Attach a small bead on the center.
Add the paper flowers to your unicorn to make a flower crown.
Attach the flowers along the top side of the unicorn head, below the ears and horn.
How to make the unicorn ornament backing and hanger
Glue the leaves between the flowers.
Select a craft paper to cut out a 15 inches long and 2 inches wide strip. Create small and even accordion folds on the strip.
Attach both open sides of the accordion folded strip. Hold any one side of the roll (accordion folded roll) and press it towards the center to flatten it. Cut out 2 round patterns and glue them on the center of the flattened accordion folded piece, on both sides.
Cut out a small piece of yarn or string and tie its open ends together. Attach it with the accordion folded piece. You can either glue the yarn or make a hole on the accordion folded piece and then attach the yarn.
Finally, attach the unicorn head right on the center of the accordion folded piece and allow the glue to dry completely.
When dry the unicorn ornament is ready to be hung or strung onto string for a banner even put them on a special gift for a unicorn lover.
Whether you string these unicorn ornaments up on the tree for Christmas or together as banner for a shower or make them for a kids party. We hope you enjoy making this unicorn ornament diy in all the colors of the rainbow. Or make them in holiday colors.
