Unicorn Valentines Day Craft Written Tutorial
To make this unicorn paper plate craft start by cutting a triangle / horn shape out of glittery cardboard*, pink or red card would work well for this too.
Because your unicorns horn will go over the top of the paper plate* I’ve used double sided sticky tape* rather than glue to stick it down. It’s a bit more fiddly but with things like this I find that it holds the card in place better (and no one wants a unicorn horn falling off after all). Next cut some heart shapes out of pink and red card and paper, these should be fine to stick on using normal glue.
For the smaller hearts I’ve used a heart shaped cutter* but you would be fine just cutting these out normally. I’ve used some scrap paper that had a cute pattern on it just to give it a bit of differentiation from the larger heart shapes.
Finally draw on your unicorns eyes, mouth and (my favourite) pink cheeks and you’re paper plate unicorn is done!
Ways To Adapt This Craft
Don’t have a heart cutter? Use heart shaped stickers instead. You could also just draw your hearts on although this won’t work drawing on the actual unicorn horn itself.
Use plain card instead of glitter card for the unicorns horn.
Instead of drawing on pink cheeks you could cut these out of pink paper and glue them on.
Cut the unicorns ears out of paper or card and glue these on for a more 3D effect.
