Supplies you will need for this unicorn craft
Craft supplies list
- Felt fabrics
- Black gel pen – for tracing the template
- Needle and thread or embroidery thread
- FREE UNICORN TEMPLATE
*Optionally if you don’t want to sew this you could use liquid stitch or another fabric glue as a NO sew option. (although I haven’t tried no sew for this craft it might be an option. Just be sure to make a cross stitch for your ribbon hanger, and let all your glued pieces dry completely prior to using.)

Felt Unicorn Pattern
First grab your craft supplies, print the template then follow the instructions below.
How to make a unicorn head
Select the felt fabrics to make the unicorn. I’m using off-white felt for the body and ears and yellow felt for the horn. For the rest of the features you can use any color you want. Simply trace the patterns on the selected felts and cut them out nicely.
Take any 1 cut outs for the head (the round cut outs) and stitch the semi circular part on the bottom side of the head cut out. Prepare black thread and needle to stitch the eyes, nose and mouth.
Take the 2 cut outs for the horn and place them together by matching all sides.
Stitch around the sides to join both pieces together.
Select a piece of ribbon and fold it into half. (Alternately you could omit the ribbon and make a cute Kawaii Unicorn type unicorn doll then follow the rest of the steps to make your small unicorn doll)
Take the other head cut out and place it on a flat surface. Place the 2 ear cut outs along the top side of the head; also place the open ends of the folded ribbon between the ears. Make sure that the ears and the ribbon overlap the head cut out by 1 cm (at least).
Carefully place the horn on the top of the ribbon, again making sure that the horn also overlaps the head by 1 cm.
Now take the front piece of the head (the stitched one); and place it on the top of the other head cut out.
Place the 3 hair cut outs along the top side of the front head; arrange them nicely.
Prepare needle and thread. Stitch the ears, ribbon, horn, hair cut outs and both head cut outs together along the top side. Keep a small opening on the bottom side (1 cm will do) of the head.
Next: Stuff the head with enough cotton (poly-fil stuffing) through the bottom opening to give it a fluffy look.
How to Make a Unicorn Body
Now take the body cut outs and stitch them together around the sides.
Stuff the body with cotton (poly-fil stuffing) through any opening before closing the stitch.
How to attach the head and body together to complete the unicorn ornament
Take the stuffed head and bring the needle and thread attached with the body near the neck (on the top side of the body).
Insert about 1 cm of the neck inside the head through its bottom open end. Simply stitch the bottom side of the head and body parts together to join them.
How to Make the Unicorn Mane
Arrange the 3 patterns of the tail together. Make sure that all 3 pieces overlap each other.
Stitch the tail on the back side of the unicorn body.
Now your done with your Unicorn Christmas Ornament! Have fun making as many unicorns as you’d like.
