Rainbow Unicorn Costume

Materials:

  • Taylor Joelle Rainbow Stripe Dress
  • white felt (I had them cut me a 1/4 yard at the fabric store, and I have tons left).
  • pink felt
  • cardboard (I used a notebook cover)
  • hot glue gun
  • scissors
  • headband (mine is from the dollar store)
  • gold pipe cleaner (or gold wire)
  • stuffing
  • flowers to decorate

Step 1:

Cover the headband with strips of white felt using hot glue

Step 2:

Create the horn.  I pinched down one corner, began rolling into the shape I want and used hot glue to secure as I rolled.  Once it was the size I wanted, I cut the bottom to make it an even cone.  Next I stuffed the cone with some cotton stuffing (took some from a throw pillow I was planning on tossing).

 

 

Step 3:

Wrap the pipe cleaner or wire around the horn.  I used dabs of hot glue to secure it.  Then, attach the horn to the headband.  This time I uses lots of hot glue and fold the sides over the headband.

 

Step 4:

Cut the unicorn ears out using cardboard and felt.  Glue the felt to the cardboard to make it stiff.  Then use hot glue to attach the ears to the headband.

Step 5:

Embellish with some fake flowers. Rather than spending a lot of money buying the different colors I need, I bought 1 bunch of white flowers and painted them with spray paint and acrylic paint that we had around the house.  Glue the flowers to the headband.

And there you have it.  A unicorn headband.  My 4 year old son loves it and now is insisting he be a unicorn for Halloween 🙂

These headband would also work great for a unicorn birthday party favor.  Or a party activity.  You could pre-make the headbands and have the party guest embellish them.
