Make Your Dreams Come True With This DIY Floral Unicorn Christmas Wreath

It’s no secret that we’re *obsessed* with all things unicorns and floral. Somewhere over the rainbow and through a glittery forest, there’s a family of unicorns prancing in a mystical flower meadow, just waiting to be found. But until we can find this ethereal place, we’ll be on a mission to create every unicorn-inspired craft possible (in hopes of luring these magical creatures to our beloved office). With the holiday season in full swing, we’ve got a special unicorn DIY to share. Read on to learn how to make your holidays a little more whimsical with this DIY floral unicorn wreath. Perhaps you’ll ignite a magic light to attract the sparkly creatures.

Materials + Tools:

Instructions:

  1. Cut out the horn and ear shapes from the printable.
  2. Use the printable shapes as a guide to cut from the felt sheets. Use white felt for the horn and larger ear piece. Use pink felt for the smaller ear piece. Make sure to cut two of each ear piece out.
  3. To make the unicorn horn, start at the top of the horn and slowly roll it into a point. Use the hot glue gun to secure placement.
  4. Once the point is glued, adhere the edges of the felt cone so the bottom ends meet.
  5. Fill the horn with cotton stuffing.
  6. Fold over the felt ends of the cone, and glue them down to seal up the horn.
  7. Starting at the bottom of the horn, glue a piece of embroidery thread where the felt ends meet.
  8. Wrap the thread around the horn, tugging a little each way to give the horn definition.
  9. Glue the end to the top of the horn, and snip off any excess thread.
  10. Make the unicorn ears by gluing the pink felt pieces on top of the white felt pieces. Set aside.
  11. To make the wreath, arrange the fake flowers around the foam ring. Glue down the flowers when happy with placement.
  12. For a whimsical illusion of unicorn hair, loop four 12-inch strips of tulle around the wreath ring.
  13. Glue on the unicorn horn and ears.

Let’s get to it!

First things first, we’re going to start off by making the unicorn horn and ear set. Cut out the horn and ear shapes from the printable. Use the printable shapes as a guide to cut from the felt sheets. Use white felt for the horn and larger ear piece. Use pink felt for the smaller ear piece. Make sure to cut two of each ear piece out.

To make the unicorn horn, start at the top and slowly roll it into a point. Use the hot glue gun to secure placement. Once the point is glued, adhere the edges of the felt cone so the bottom ends meet.

Fill the horn with cotton stuffing. Fold over the felt ends of the cone, and glue them down to seal up the horn.

Pro Tip: Use filling from an old pillow if you don’t need to buy a large bag of cotton stuffing.

Starting at the bottom of the horn, glue a piece of embroidery thread where the felt ends meet. We’re using a glittery pink thread to accentuate the unicorn sparkles. Wrap the thread around the horn, tugging a little each way to give the horn definition. Glue the end to the top of the horn, and snip off any excess thread.

Make the unicorn ears by gluing the pink felt pieces on top of the white felt pieces. Et voilà! You’ve finished a set of unicorn horn and ears. (Feel free to make extra sets. They can easily be added to a headband, so you can don it for your next party or Halloween costume!)

To make the wreath, arrange the fake flowers around the foam ring. Glue down the flowers when happy with placement.

Now to create an illusion of unicorn hair with some pink glitter tulle! Cut four 12-inch strips of tulle. Locate where you’ll be placing the unicorn ears, and loop through two strips of tulle (for each ear) onto the wreath. Feel free to layer on the tulle to fluff things up.

Give your wreath its final spark by gluing on the unicorn horn and ears!

Zhush up the tulle ends — ANDDD you’re done!

Hang up the wreath for a special touch this holiday season. And don’t worry — your magical creation can definitely stay up all year long :)

Here’s to hoping that we’ll wake up to the sight of some beautifully mystical creatures.
