You Can Make a magical unicorn horn for halloween

Here’s how you can create unicorn magic for your halloween.

First, Take a headband, and some wire.   Create an armiture byt wrapping the wire around the headband and in the shape of a horn.


Create form around the armiture by first wrapping/sewing fabric around it, then covering with masking tape, papier mache, and/or acrylic gel medium.  Start at the point, and spiral downwards, tearing the tape when necessary.

Once you’ve got your shape, you may paint it neutral bone color, rainbow & ribbons, or magic glitter sparkle.  Dress it up with a colorful wig, or dress it down with bangs pushed forward around the horn.


Voila!  You’re a Magic Unicorn!
