Paper Bag Unicorn Craft Directions

First, glue on the googly eyes to the front of the paper bag as a reference. You can glue the eyes on last if you want (as our pictures show), but to make sure the mane and horn aren’t too low you may want to glue your eyes on first.

Add two dots for a nose near the mouth of the unicorn.
