- Coloured A4 card
- Egg Carton (white preferably)
- Coloured 30cm pipe cleaners
- Hole punch
- Glue stick
- Coloured beads or buttons
On the coloured card, trace around a bowl or small plate to make a circle.
Cut out the circle.
Cut a straight line through the circle to the centre.
Gently pull one edge of the cut circle across the other cut edge to make a slight cone shape. Staple the join in two places and set aside. This will be the base of your hat.
Now, cut through the middle of your egg carton box to carefully cut around each point or cone. This will be the unicorns horn.
From where you’ve removed the cone of the egg carton, cut up the side of two egg cups to make a pointed ear.
Grab your coloured card cone hats again. Place the unicorn’s horn almost in the middle of the cone, and staple the horn on either side. Place the egg carton ears on either side of the horn and staple them on too. Punch a hole behind each ear.
With your coloured card scraps, cut two small ear shapes. Glue these inside your egg carton ears.
Now for the unicorn hair. Cut 4 x 30cm pipe cleaners into roughly even thirds. Bundle up two of the thirds together, then cut the last third in half again.
With the longer pipe cleaners, hold them all together, make a gentle bend at the base of them, and staple them firmly behind the unicorn horn. Thread beads on to decorate the hair.
Staple the shorter pipe cleaner pieces in front of the unicorn horn. Decorate with beads as well if you wish.
Tie a 30cm pipe cleaner or string onto each hole behind the ears. Place the unicorn hat on the top of your child’s head. Guide the pipe cleaner band behind their ears, and tie under their chin.
You may want to make a unicorn tail next. Enjoy being a unicorn for the day!
