Red paper plate Valentine unicorn craft for kids

We made two versions of the Valentine’s Day unicorn. They are both very simple, like our entire collection of 100+ crafts for kids, it’s just that one unicorn has an extra step: painting. We painted one paper plate red and left the other one white. If you prefer a colored unicorn, you can also go for pink, purple or any other color that your child loves.

How to make a paper plate Valentine unicorn craft

If you want to make a colored unicorn, start by painting the paper plate red , pink, purple or any color of your choice. Set the paper plate aside and let it dry completely.

unicorn horn

Use a pencil to trace the unicorn horn on glitter foam and cut it out. Glue it to the back of the paper plate.

Unicorn hearts

Draw a few hearts on colored paper. Cut them out and glue them on the paper plate, underneath the horn. If you have a heart punch, you can use it. I have a small one and so I was able to add a cute little heart to the heart bouquet.

Unicorn ears

Trace the ears and the ear details on colored paper, cut them out and glue them together.  Add the ears onto the paper plate, one ear on each side.

Unicorn eyes

Draw the unicorn’s sleepy eyes with a black marker. You can make the eyelashes go up or down. I think both look cute.

Unicorn cheeks

Use a small circle punch to make two circles and glue them under the eyes, one on each side.
