Unicorn Tree Topper:

For implementing this idea, you will need:
Felt (White, Black).
Ribbon (blue, Pink, Yellow).
Glitter Craft Foam.
Paper Towel Roll.
From two layers of felt, cut a unicorn’s head.
For the ribbons to go through, cut small holes where the mane will be.
Using a thread, sew the strips of ribbon through the holes and tie them to secure it in place.
Stitch a blanket around the rest of the unicorn head, with a needle and thread and leave a hole at the bottom.
From a black felt, cut out an eye and glue it.
From a glitter craft foam, cut two cone shapes, making one slightly larger and hot glue them along the sides and wrap the metallic string around the unicorn’s horn and hot glue it.
Glue the horn to the head.
To the bottom of unicorn’s head, insert a paper towel roll and sew large stitches along the bottom and gather the felt around the roll.
Lastly, glue the felt to the bottom of unicorn’s head.
Glittery Cone Tree:
Think of unicorns, think glitters and pastel colors. You can decorate your cone Christmas tree if you have and if not then make one and decorate it with unicorn’s horn shape on top. If you do not have any of these, make a cone tree from a glittery scrap book paper.
While decorating a christmas tree, start off with the ribbon and then larger ornaments and lastly the small ornaments. Use large glittery gold and white bows from ribbons for the unicorn tree by spreading it evenly and then add some frosted faux greenery branches for extra sparkle.
Once done with this, decorate the tree with your larger ornaments. You can use some metallic geometric ornaments with some pink colored ones.
Use smaller ornaments in pastel colors to fill the rest of your tree.
TIP: Get some lavender colored ornaments for small ornament options. If you do not have any then dip some old ornaments right in chalk style paint and leave them to dry. Once dried, hang it to your Christmas tree.
Glittery Glass Ornament:
Making your holiday ornament always brings something special to season. The glass ornament craft is the perfect way to bring smiles on everyone’s faces. It requires the use of hot glue and so it is recommended that adults should do this part. Follow the instructions and bring the unicorn cheer in the house.
For implementing this, you will need the following:
White Glittery Glass Ornament.
Mini Flowers in White and Pink.
Oil based Paint.
Fine or Extra Fine Tip Pen.
Oven Baked White Clay.
Gold Spray Paint.
Glue and Hot Glue Gun.
Hot Pink Felt.
White Stiff Felt.
Gold Twine Ribbon.
From the clay block, cut two small pieces to make the horn and roll the clay to make one end smaller than the other. One end of the clay has to be thicker than the other so that when you roll it together, the bottom of the horn gets thicker than the top.
Twist both the pieces together and keep twisting until they are close together and a bit fatter to look like a unicorn horn. Cut off the end when it is 4 cm long. You can make few more horns in case you want them to be painted. Once done, put it in an oven to bake. It is recommended that adults should do this part.
Once the baking is done and cool, start spray painting your horns in gold color. Once done, the horns are finished.
To use for tracing, on a white card stock, draw a sample of your eyes. This way, the size of both the eyes will be same. Cut the template and use it as a reference. Stick down the template using a tape to the ornament and use the oil based pen to draw the eyes. Oil based pen is more durable on glass ornaments.
Tips for Eyes:
- If you press it hard, it will get thick, so avoid doing that.
- Draw it all in one motion to avoid making any spot.
- Lastly, draw swoop eyelashes free handed.
Work on the ear pieces by drawing a template again on a card stock and cutting it out to use it as a template. To have both ear sizes same, draw a smaller inside ear portion with pink felt and the larger ear portion with white felt. Use glue to stick it together.
Slit the bottom and glue the sides from the bottom of the slit together so the ears bend in. Once done, glue the ears to the ornament behind where the horn is placed.
To the top of your ornament, glue the horn.
Glue the flowers using a mix of white and pink on the sides. Do not forget to cover the front of the horn / ornament topper with a middle flower.
By wrapping and tying around the top or gluing to the back of an ornament, add the gold twine.
And you are good to go. Kids in your house are going to fall in love with this décor idea and receive this as a Christmas gift.

Unicorn Paper Décor Idea: The crafts on a paper are the easiest and they rock and above that, unicorns are magical and to make this décor idea,
You will need:
White A4 Sheet: 1.
Colored Paper Scraps.
Bakers Twine for Hanging.
Pens for Decorating.
Design the head of the unicorn first or you can also use a printed template. Facing in opposite direction, you will need 2 of these.
Add details like ear, nose and eyes in pen.
Cut some rainbow paper strips in different colors of your choice.
Add glue to the unicorn’s head and stick the mane as neatly as possible to the edges because sometimes the line is visible through the white paper and then add a gold horn.
To the other side of the horn, add some extra mane to match both the sides and trim it if needed.
Glue the second head piece.
Add an extra rainbow paper strips for the horn on one side to make the tail.
To prepare the legs, cut strips of white paper and gold strip paper and fold in half. You can also draw some hooves with pens instead of gold.
To form a golden hoof, glue over the bottom of white strips of paper and trim it and put it on one side.
To make the bauble body, cut 9 to 20 white circles and fold it in half.
Add glue to one half and lay the second circle on top of it and continue until all the half circles stuck together.
Take bakers twine and cut the longest piece, measure it against the bauble and head to see that it is long enough to hang. Make a knot by doubling it.
To the bauble’s spine and one side, apply lots of glue and place the unicorn tail pieces on the paper to have a tail which will be pointing up and then add the bakers twine to the center of the spine.
Take the first piece of paper and connect it to the last piece. This will give you a paper bauble with rainbow tail hanging from bakers twine.
To assemble, take the unicorn head, find the paper bauble which is opposite the tail and glue into position.
Lastly, add one leg to the segment where the tail is and another leg where the head is.
