Printable Unicorn Puppets in Christmas Pyjamas: Tutorial
Step 1: Download the Unicorn Templates on to white card stock.
Arty Crafty Kids can start filling in the Design Your Own template with their own funky pyjama design.
Step 2: Colour in the template with a medium of your Arty Crafty Kids choice.
Here we’ve used a combination of watercolours, felt tip pens and black fine point pen,
Step 3: Once your Arty Crafty Kids chosen unicorn is complete and colourful, carefully cut the elements.
Step 4: Locate the circles on the body, arms and legs, and create holes with a hole puncher OR if you do not have an available hole puncher (like us), simply pierce the holes with the split pins and spin to create a roomy hole.
Step 5: Place the arms behind the body. Line up the holes and secure with a split pin.
Make sure they’re secured too tightly – the arms and legs need to have free and easy movement!
Step 6: Once you’re satisfied the arms and legs have a decent level of movement, thread a piece of cotton through the needle and tie a knot at the end.
Pierce the needle through the top of the arm as shown above and thread the cotton across to the other side.
Finish off the join with a knot.
The cotton between the arms shouldn’t be too tight or too loose. This may take a little trial and error, but you should be aiming for legs that can easily move, with tension still on the thread.
Step 7: Repeat the process with the legs.
Step 8: Attach a piece of long ribbon to the centre of the strand joining the arms together and then again with the legs.
Step 9: Pull the thread and the arms and legs will kick out!
To add a musical element to the puppets, add some jingle bells to the remaining ribbon!
Not only will the kick out and dance, they will jingle all the way too…
