Thanksgiving is almost here and of course we had to put a magical twist to it with this cute Turkey Unicorn Craft. Colorful like our paper plate turkeys, we embellished this one with a sparkly horn, star eyes and paper flowers!

This would be a cute craft to set up at the Thanksgiving table to keep your little ones busy as you prep dinner. You can also use them as table decor or have kids write on the back what they are thankful for.

This Turkey Unicorn Craft would be adorable along with our mini DIY Unicorn Pumpkins.

Step 1. Paint your paper plate brown and let it dry completely.

Step 2. Cut a triangle from your glitter cardstock and glue to the back center of plate.

Step 3. Make your paper flowers. We used the medium sized flower template from our paper hydrangea flowers). Trace two petal shapes, glue on top, add a sticker gem to the center. Curl the petals with something circular and skinny like a lollipop stick. Make your paper flowers in different colors, glue to the center of your paper plate.

Step 4. Cut ear shapes from white cardstock or stiff white felt, cut out some inner orange ears, glue those to the white ears, then glue behind your paper plate.

Step 5. Make colored feathers. Cut a feather shape, use that as a template to make more colors. Cut and glue to the back of the plate.

Step 6. Use your black paint markers to draw eyes on the plate. Add some star stickers on the side of the eyes for embellishments.

Step 7. Cut out two circles for the cheeks, a yellow triangle for nose and long tear shaped size out of red paper for the wattle. Glue on your pieces to the plate.

How cute is this magical Unicorn Turkey?
