How to make a Unicorn HornFirst, I made the horn. A unicorn horn is probably the most important part of a unicorn costume, it’s what sets a unicorn apart from the other horses! Unicorns are magical and unique, I hope you see this as more of a guide for the techniques you need so you can have your own special creation! There are so many ways to customize and decorate this, I want to make a hundred!

To start, I printed and cut out the paper template for the horn. Since I used this stretchy performance fabric, I opted to trace the horn onto the back of the fabric rather than pinning it out or cutting it with my Cricut Maker.

With right sides together, fold it in half and pin along the seam allowance.

Stitch up the side.

Pull the right side out.

Stuff the horn. For the best finished look you’ll want a stuffing tool and to start by using small bits of stuffing. Start by getting tiny amounts up into the tip of the horn and gradually getting larger as you work your way down. You’ll want to roll it with your hands to get rid of any lumps.

Leave about an inch of space at the bottom and put a running stitch around it. Then gather it up and tie it off.

How to make Unicorn Ears

For the ears, I began by cutting the felt pieces out of felt on my Cricut Maker using the Rotary Blade. Then I used a whip stitch all around the outside edge to bring to white pieces together.

Once I have those all stitched up, I can move on to the details. First, I figure out my placement for the inner ear pieces.

Then, using hot glue, I attach the pink pieces to the main part of the ear. Make sure the ears are going in opposite directions!

To create more dimension I fold the inside corners away from the center and hold in place with hot glue. Then cut off the excess at the bottom.

I always plan out my placements before adding glue. And then start gluing. So first I attached the horn in the center of the headband, that way I can use that point as an anchor for where to put everything else.

Here I’m gluing on the ears so they point away from the horn. Don’t worry if it’s looking a little messy at the bottom, we’re about to fix that.

So the basic headband is complete, but why not embellish? I decided to give my unicorn horn a flower crown! I chose a variety of faux flowers in a pink, white and yellow color scheme to use. Some flowers you can pop off of the stems and use that way, otherwise wire cutters will come in handy.

I always start with my biggest flowers and build around them. If you are going for a similar look to mine, then you’ll want to try distributing the different colors evenly across the headband. Try to fill in any empty spots, and add a few to the back to hide all those pesky stems.
