I see unicorns popping up everywhere on Facebook and Pinterest. I must say they are not big in our families as boys aren’t so impressed by these magical creatures. Nevertheless I decided to craft one. With the luckiest day of the year just around the corner, I made a paper plate St Patricks Day unicorn craft.
It’s super easy to make, especially with the right tools (shamrock and heart punches).

Step 1: Cut out the unicorn horn from gold cardstock paper. Wrap green yarn around the horn and glue it to the back of the horn. Glue the horn to the back of the paper plate.
Step 2: Use a black marker to draw the unicorn’s eyes and mouth.
Step 3: Use green cardstock paper and the two punches to create two hearts and a bunch of shamrocks.
Step 4: Cut out the ears using white and yellow cardstock paper and glue them to the top of the paper plate, one on each side of the horn.
