Step 2: Next, trace each shape onto the coordinating color felt with a marker and cut out.

  • Unicorn Head = White Felt
  • Pink Inner Ear = Light Pink Felt (cut out 2 of these; one for each ear)
  • Pink Snout = Light Pink Felt
  • Front Hair Swoop = Dark Pink Felt
  • Mane = Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue & Purple (cut out 1 in each color)

Step 5: Next comes the fun part! Glue on the rainbow mane one color at a time along the back side of the right edge. ROYGBIV – pretending that the Dark Pink Hair Swoop is red, start with Orange, then Yellow, Green, Blue & Purple on the bottom.

Tip: Turn the unicorn head face down and line up each piece of the mane where you want it before gluing. Then carefully flip over and gently fold back the edge of the unicorn head to add a dab of glue to each piece of the mane.

Step 6: Using a black marker, draw on a smile and a nose to the Light Pink Snout. Then add two eyes with eyelashes to the White Unicorn Head and ridges to the top triangle to create a horn.
