Show mom she’s truly one of a kind this Mother’s Day with our Mother’s Day Unicorn Card!
Moms are the most magical of all, with all they do in a day. Not only would the house fall apart without them, but we also somehow manage to get everyone where they need to go, keep a stocked fridge, run to important school functions, and seem to know exactly what’s going on with our kids without them even having to say a word. Just a small list of reasons of why YOUR mom is the perfect mom for YOU. And why she’s truly one of a kind. Being one of a kind and magical, a unicorn card only seems appropriate. Our Mother’s Day Unicorn Card is both a craft project and card in one, with a mane of colorful yarn unicorn hair. And it comes complete with a free printable template for easy creating.

Mother’s Day Unicorn Card
- Unicorn Card Free Printable Template
- Gold, pink & purple glitter cardstock
- Blue, purple and white shimmer yarn
- Hole Punch
Print the templates and cut them out. Match the card-front with the card-back. Hole punch the circle guides at the top of the card-front. Make sure you are hole punching both the card-front and card-back at the same time.
Trace and cut the horn out of the gold glitter paper. Trace and cut the unicorn snout out of pink glitter paper. Hole punch the nostrils. Trace and cut the outer ears out of purple glitter cardstock. Trace and cut the inner ears from gold glitter cardstock. Glue the gold inner ear pieces to the center of the purple outer ear pieces. Glue the glitter pink snout onto the bottom of the card-front.
Cut the blue yarn into nine, 12â€ pieces. Cut the purple yarn into three, 12â€ pieces. Cut the white yarn into three, 12â€ pieces. Measurements do not need to be exact. Separate the pieces of yarn into 5 groups, which is one group for each hole punched. Three groups of 3 pieces blue yarn, one group of 3 pieces purple yarn and one group of 3 pieces white yarn. Fold over each yarn group and feed the looped end into the card hole. Put the yarn ends into that loop. Pull to secure to card. Repeat with remaining holes. Alternating colors yarns: blue, purple, blue, white, blue. Now your unicorn has a mane of hair!
Glue the horn and ears slightly below the yarn, covering it up the holes. Move the yarn around the horn and ears to style. Use scissors to give your unicorn some bangs.
