Happy Halloween Everyone!!! I hope you all enjoyed a spooky weekend – I’ve loved seeing everyone’s fancy dress efforts on Instagram and Twitter 👻
I had a lot of comments on my DIY Unicorn costume, so thought I’d post a step by step guide for you to follow. It might be a little late to for your trick or treat costume this year – but you don’t always need an excuse to dress up as a unicorn (right?!) 😜
1. I based the unicorn horn on this floral headband from ASOS…
…Picking it up as a total bargain on the sale – it gave me a great base to build my unicorn horn on.
To make space for the unicorn horn, I removed the middle flower keeping it to add on to the headband at a later point.
2. To get the horn shape I used a piece of felt and rolled it into a cone shape. Filling it with this toy stuffing (leaving about an inch gap) I then placed it in the gap where the middle flower was originally and wrapped the felt across the ribbon, glueing it to secure.
3. I also picked up this artificial flower from Hobbycraft, which has a range of textures and sizes of flowers.
4. The final addition to the headband was the beads. I had an old pearl necklace (Primark’s finest!) that I took some beads from and attached to shorter peaces of thin thread, before tying it to the ribbon.
And we are done!!! 😘
Here are a couple more photos for you to see how it all came together…
