This toilet paper roll unicorn is a super fun and easy craft to make! With minimal supplies and minimal mess, you can create this magical unicorn in no time at all!
I have been on a huge toilet paper roll craft kick lately. I absolutely love them! They are so versatile and the kinds of projects you can create with them are virtual endless! And best of all is that you can recycle something you already have in the house.
Whether you have toilet paper rolls lying around, paper towels rolls or even wrapping paper rolls, there are so many crafts you can create.
Today, I’m excited to share with you this fun and easy unicorn craft. With just a few supplies you can make a magical unicorn for yourself!
- Paper roll (toilet paper roll, paper towel roll or these paper rolls from Amazon are excellent too)
- Free Printable Template (the download link is located at the bottom of this post)
- Black marker
- Crayons, markers or colored pencils
- White paint (optional)
- Paintbrush (optional)
The first step is to make the base of the paper roll white. You can do this by either cutting out the rectangle from the printable template and then gluing to the tube. Alternatively, you can also paint the paper roll white.
For mine, I used white acrylic paint. I wanted to include the white template as well in case you were going for a no mess craft! I know that often times painting with little kids can be quite the commitment to cleanup!

After you have glued the paper to the tube or let the white paint dry, you can use a black marker to draw on eyes and a mouth. I also added two cute little pink cheeks.
Next, color in the unicorns ears, horn and hair on the printable template. You can use crayons, markers, colored pencils or any other art supplies you have around the house. I considered adding a few sequins to mine!
Cut out all of the shapes and then begin gluing them to the paper roll. The ears and horn should go on the inside of the paper roll and stick out. The hair and flowers should be glued right above the unicorns eyes. The larger piece of hair should be glued to the back of the paper roll so it sticks out of the right side.
Once everything has dried you now have an adorable unicorn you can play with or display around the house!
