How to Make Myths and Legends Unicorn Paper Plate Craft
List of Supplies:
- Paper plate
- Colored craft papers
- Green yarn
- Craft glue
- Googly eye
Paper Plate Preparation
Prepare your needle with green thread.
Take your paper or plastic plate and start to stitch from one side to the opposite side of the plate. Keep the thread tight and pulled upward.
Only stitch half of the plate with your green thread, leaving the other half free of thread.
The green is going to be the grass for your myths and legends paper plate craft, you can use two different shades of green yarn to give the “grass” some texture and extra color.
Measure the bottom diameter of the plate and cut out 2 half circles according to that measurement. Cut one-half circle from green colored craft paper and the other one from blue-colored craft paper. Also, trace and cut out 2 cloud patterns from white paper.
Attach the half-circle green cutout below the green strings on the plate.
Attach the blue half-circle cutout on the other half of the plate for your sky on the myths and legends paper plate craft.
Trace the unicorn template on your selected colored paper and cut out your unicorn.
Attach the big hair pattern onto the backside of your unicorn’s head.
Next, attach the medium hair pattern on the forehead of the unicorn. Then, add the other hair patterns to complete the unicorns hair.
The next step is to add the semi-circular part on the bottom side of the unicorn face.
Attach the horn and tail to your unicorn.
Add googly eyes and use a sharpie to trace a smiley face.
Place the paper unicorn in between the green string grass and the dragon in the sky (the blue part of your paper craft).
Repeat the steps above to make your paper dragon.
