Unicorns are so fun and magical. I have been doing quite a bit of crafts and baking to celebrate unicorns and here is another project that I want to share with you. This is a DIY unicorn silhouette piece of art made with a background of washi tape. This craft is fairly simple and could most likely be done by kids 8 and up. This would be a fun way to spend time with your child, a cool activity for a play date and an awesome addition to a unicorn birthday party where the guests could make and take their own creative Unicorn art home after the party as a favor. I am going to show you how you can make this DIY unicorn silhouette washi tape art.

5.) begin at one edge of the paper and begin to alternate patterns and colors one after the other until the paper is filled. You can trim the excess tape from the edges or simply fold it over the back of the paper.

6.) Turn the unicorn over and apply the glue from the glue stick.
