Unicorn Suncatcher Materials Needed:
Unicorn Suncatcher Tutorial
First, gather up your supplies and print out your unicorn template.
Next, cut two sheets of contact paper and remove the backing from one of them. After you’ve done that, carefully lay it upside down (sticky part up) on top of your printed unicorn template.
The template is used as a guide. I would encourage taping your contact paper to a surface so your unicorn doesn’t move underneath it.
Then start laying your cut out tissue paper. We decided on a rainbow effect with half inch strips of tissue paper, but you can get as creative as you want.
Try not to overload the outer layer with tissue paper as you will still need to see the unicorn’s head for the next step.
Then peel off the other piece of contact paper. Carefully lay it on top of your unicorn (sticky side down this time). It is okay if the pieces don’t match up exactly. You will be cutting the edges in the following steps.
Once your second layer of contact paper is on, take your large sharpie and trace the unicorn’s head. Aren’t you glad you can still see it?
Now it is time to cut out your unicorn suncatcher. If you have younger kids, you might want to help them with this step.
Then finally display your new unicorn suncatcher proudly on the window of your choice!
Whether you opt to enjoy this unicorn crafts for kids as a birthday party idea, or a simple stained glass style project at home with kids, I’m confident you’ll enjoy every minute of this awesome project!
