Instructions for the Unicorn Decor
Prepare the Pieces
1. Create a paper cone. Create a paper cone by rolling a corner of the glitter cardstock. This might be tricky depending on the thickness of your cardstock, but work with it. Trim off the rest of the cardstock beyond the cone and use hot glue to secure (you might have to hold it a bit until it sets). Trim the bottom so that it is level-ish (it doesn’t have to be perfect) and make any trims or glue adjustments to the tip (if you need to). Set it aside.
2. Ears. Cut two ear shapes from the non-glitter cardstock. Note: if I had to do this again, I would have also cut a light pink inset for the ear. Put them aside for now.
3. Ribbon ring. Once the ribbon lengths are ready (remember to vary the size), tie them in knots at the bottom of the hoop.
Assemble the Unicorn Ribbon Hoop
1. Attach the cone. In the center of the hoop, hot glue the unicorn horn to the top-center of the metal (or wooden) craft hoop. You will have to hold in place for a bit while the glue hardens. If any glue shows through, don’t fret – you’ll cover this up with flowers.
2. Create a hanger. Use a thin ribbon (or twine) to create a hanger. Tie the ribbon on either side of the unicorn horn, preferably behind where the ears would go. Hold it up to make sure they’re in the right place and the hoop hangs evenly.
3. Hot glue the ears to the front of the hoop on either side of the horn. Try to make them evenly spaced with just enough room for a flower on either side of the horn.
4. Attach three decorative flowers around the horn (one in front, two on either side). You can choose to add another flower off to the side or not.
