At last, you can Build A Unicorn! Continuing on in my printable Build An Animal series, I’d like to introduce you to Unity the Unicorn! A free printable paper unicorn template that can be cut and stuck together.

The build-a-unicorn printable helps children with their cutting and pasting skills, as well as the opportunity to get creative with other materials too – like sticking on pieces of fur fabric, or adding glitter!

Free Printable Build A Unicorn - various pieces to construct a paper unicorn

Build A Unicorn!

My build an animal series started with Rudy the Rooster and many other animals (and characters) have followed since! You will find all of my “Build-A-Character” printables at the end of the post.

The free printable paper craft is really fun – not just for kids, but for adults too! I love constructing the buildable characters when I have to photograph them for my blog! Sadly, my printer is out of ink, but I will update this post with photos of the printed unicorn when I can.

Introducing Unity the Unicorn!


If you are a regular on my blog you’ll notice that my characters have a cute chubby style, and if they are animals they are anthropomorphic, which basically means that they have human traits – like standing on two legs instead of four.

I thought it was high time that a unicorn joined the menagerie, and so I have created Unity the Unicorn and I hope that you love him as much as I do!

I’ve created two sizes for Unity the Unicorn: Regular size, which is what you see at the top of the page, with all of the pieces (usually on) one sheet of paper, however, I had to spread the unicorn pieces over two sheets; and Large size with the pieces spread over several sheets.

As with [most of] my free printables, they are available in two paper sizes – A4 and US Letter (8.5″ x 11″)

The regular size printable is for children that are more skilled at cutting. The large size should be a lot easier for younger children. Or you could cut them out for them. Of course, you know your children, so will know what suits them best!

You could stick pieces together with a glue stick, or sticky tape.

You could mount it onto a larger piece of paper and use other craft materials to embellish it – furry material, glitter, sequins, buttons, tissue paper, for example.

You could use a laminator and laminate the pieces and use them over and over again.

Most of all, just have fun with this printable!

Download your chosen printable from the list further down the page (they’re surrounded by a purple box), and print onto thick paper or thin card. Cut the pieces out, then build a unicorn!

Included in this printable paper unicorn craft are the following pieces:

  • Head/Body with eyes and rosy cheeks
  • Muzzle with nostrils and mouth
  • Arms
  • Feet
  • Horn
  • Mane pieces x 2 (top of head)
  • Mane pieces x 4 (back of head)
  • Tail pieces x 3
