DIY Unicorn Hair Bow Holder

As you can see from the pictures it’s a pretty straight-forward craft but there are a few things that you can easily do to change up the look. While the hair color is supposed to be rainbow, this is one thing that could be changed up if you want it to be. You can change up the order of the colors as well.

You can also draw the face on the unicorn if you don’t happen to have any googly eyes on hand, although I’m just such a big fan of how they look!

How To Make This Unicorn Holder

The main thing to keep in mind is that you need to cut out the unicorn head shape and horn. Don’t forget the unicorn horn!!

Once you have that done you can glue on the eye, draw on the smile and put the glitter on the horn.

We used purple glitter for this but you can really use any color of glitter that you want to. It’s totally up to you in what color you choose.

Tips For Making This Unicorn Hair Bow Holder

Even though this is a super simple project to do, make certain that you’re leaving the yarn long enough so that you can easily clip the hair bows onto it. (and trust me, you’re daughter is going to be tempted to cut the hair shorter and shorter “just because”!)

Since this is a simple project, make certain to let your child help out as much as possible. This helps to build their confidence as well as creative skills, too.

Instructions

Step 1: Cut out the unicorn template.

Step 2: Trace template onto cardboard using a pen.

Step 3: Cut the cardboard on the traced templet lines.

Step 4: Add glue to the horn area and cover in glitter. Allow it to dry.

Step 5: Using the small screwdriver make two small holes in the cardboard about 2 inches down from the top of the neck area of the cutout. Then push the small piece of string through the holes using the screwdriver. Tie in a knot in the back and trim off any extra.

Step 6: Glue the eye in place just slightly in front of the horn and down just a little.

Step 7: Use the marker to draw 3 eyelashes above the eye and to make a smile on the lower area.

Step 8: Using the screwdriver make 9 small holes starting at about the center of the horn and work your way down the side keeping the holes about a half-inch apart. You want them to be just below the edge but not so close that it rips the edge.

Step 9: Stretch each of the colors of floss all the way out. Then fold it in half 4 times. Using the end of the folded floss that does not have the loose ends on it, twist it slightly then push it through a hole using the screwdriver.

Then make sure to open all the loops from the area you just pulled through and run the other end of the floss through the loops and pull until snug.

Step 10: After you have all the thread added to the cardboard you need to cut the loops at the end so they are all loose.
