          DIY Unicorn Wall Art Belongs in Your Kid's Bedroom

          Actions

          After watching the premiere episode of Making It , we were so inspired by the Faster Craft challenge that we just had to make our own. With a little inspiration from contestant Amber, this taxidermy-style unicorn head came together with a lot of felt, a pair of sweatpants and an array of household items. Make it for your kid's bedroom and they're sure to have sweet dreams.

          Level: Easy

          What You Need

          • A pair of sweatpants
          • A rubber band
          • Safety pins
          • A paper cup
          • Polyfil stuffing
          • A glue gun
          • Cardboard for the backing
          • Felt for decorations

          Instructions

          1. Make the Unicorn Head

          Cut one leg off the sweatpants and trim away all of the elastic. Flip the leg inside out and wrap a rubber band around the ankle, then flip it right-side out. Fold the leg in half to find the shape you want, then use safety pins on the inside of the leg to keep the shape. Slide a small paper cup into the felt (this will help the unicorn's snout hold its shape).

          2. Stuff It

          Fill the sweatpants and cup with polyfil or other stuffing. You want there to be enough so the unicorn hold its shape, but not so much that it looks stiff.

          3. Give the Unicorn a Face

          Now it's time for the details! Use the extra sweatpant fabric to cut out two ear shapes. Cut a slit in the wider end of the ears. Then, overlap the felt on either side of the slit — looks like a unicorn's ear, right? Hot glue the ears on top of the unicorn's head.

          Finally, cut out eyes (with pretty lashes) and nostrils from felt and hot glue them in place.

          4. Add the Backing

          Cut out a cardboard oval — this is what you'll hang on the wall. Use a hole punch to add a hole at the top of the oval (which is where you can add a hook later on). Place the cardboard at the open end of the sweatpants and secure it with hot glue.

          5. Create a Magical Horn

          Next up: the horn! Cut a wedge of white felt and add a line of hot glue along one of the long edges. Roll up the wedge into a cone — make sure you hold it in place until the glue dries. Add your own magical touch to the horn! We hot glued a piece of purple embroidery thread all the way around the horn.

          6. Make the Unicorn's Mane

          First, cut a 12" x ½" strip of white felt — this will be the base of the mane. Then, cut 20 small strips of colorful felt and tie a simple knot in the center of each strip. Glue three or four small strips onto the white strip, alternating colors. Glue the horn in place, then continue adding the colorful strips. Glue the mane to the unicorn and you're done!
