You need only a simple headband, and felt or other material to make the ears and the horn. Here is a simple tutorial showing how to make a unicorn horn headband!
3 Glitter foam sheets of different colors, size 12 x 18 in
Hot glue gun
Metallic Elastic Thread
Gold star glitter
Small foil candy cups – Two packages with different colors
Glitter velvet ribbon
Hot glue gun
Horn – a triangle with dimensions: 19 cm by 7 cm / 7.5 by 2.8 inch (sides and base)
Cap – 5 cm (2 inch) in diameter x 2 or Cone clasp – 4 cm by 2 cm (1.5 x 0.8 inch)
Outer ear – 7 cm by 6 cm (2.7 x 2.4 inch)
Inner ear – 4.5 cm by 4 cm (1.8 x 1.6 inch)
Transfer the horn template on the glitter foam sheets and cut out. Roll the triangle to a cone and secure the ends with universal glue. Wrap the metallic thread around the cone and close the base by glueing the circle shape.
Apply a thin line of universal glue along the headband and glue the ribbon. Glue the inner and outher ear pieces together. Place the ears on the headband and secure using universal glue.
Position the cone on the top of the headband and glue the piece of foam underneath, securing the unicorn horn to the headband. Apply hot glue in the cups and sprinkle the glitter stars. Glue the them to the headband and do not forget to alternate colors. Let dry and your unicorn headband is ready!
