Magical Unicorn Christmas Tree Ornament
We love to create at least one handmade Christmas tree ornament each year. The kids will have a blast making them, and they make great gifts for the kids to give to their aunt’s, uncle’s, and grandparents too!
Follow along below for step-by-step visual instructions. Below that will be a printable with your list of supplies and instructions.
Gather all your supplies and get ready to craft!
Paint one side of your wood with the magical colours of your choice.
Cut out a set of ears for each unicorn Christmas tree ornament you are making and glue the inner ear to the felt ear.
Fold the ear and add a dab of glue near the bottom to shape the ears.
Cut out a magical unicorn horn!
Glue the ears and horn to your wooden unicorn head.
Attach your flower and leaves sequins onto the front of your unicorn with some glue.
Draw some magical eyes onto your unicorn with a permanent or paint marker.
Glue twin or ribbon to the back to hang your ornament.
Let everything dry for a few hours.
Once your magical unicorn Christmas tree ornament has dried, hang it on the tree for all to admire!
