Got a kiddo that loves unicorns? This unicorn crown craft, or unicrown as we've taken to calling it, is a simple and super fun cardboard craft to make and wear!

Start with:

  • Cardboard
  • Colored Cardstock
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Pencil
  • Stapler

Create it!

Step 1: Cut a length of cardboard, measure the size and staple ends together to form a crown. Paint it and allow it to dry if you would like it to be a different color than the cardboard you are using.

 

 

Step 2: Cut ears out of cardboard (paint and allow them to dry).  Cut smaller ear shapes from colored cardstock.

Step 3: Glue the smaller shape to the larger shape for ears.

Step 4: Glue the ears to the crown.

Step 5: From cardstock, cut two shapes like the letter C and several small rectangles - these pieces will form the eyes.

Step 6: Glue the eye pieces to the front of the crown.

Step 7: Cut a horn from cardstock.

Step 8: Glue the horn to the top, front of the crown - between the ears.

Step 9: Cut two half circles from cardstock and glue to the crown for the unicorn's cheeks.

Step 10: Cut strips of cardstock and curl with a pencil. 

Step 11: Glue the curled cardstock strips between the ears and to the side of the crown for the unicorn mane.

 For a party, dress up or just because - this unicorn crown is super fun to make and wear!
