Oooh, what did Kit find? It's a rare magical unicorn...pumpkin!! I loved making this craft and I think it's a super cute decoration for your doll's room or front porch step. I also created a free pattern for you to use so it's easy to get started. Let's get to it!
The supplies you need are:
- White "Casper" Mini Pumpkin
- Glitter Cardstock
- Black Paint
- Hot Glue Gun
- Unicorn Pumpkin Pattern

1. After you cut out the pattern, use the patterns to cut the ears from felt and unicorn horn from cardstock. Roll up the cardstock to create the cone shape and secure with hot glue. Cut out a small circle of cardstock and glue it to the bottom of the cone so it will be easier to glue to the pumpkin. 2. Glue the ears to the sides of the pumpkin and set aside. 3. Get out your yarn. I used two colors for mine, but you can use as many as you want. Take all of the yarn strands and begin wrapping them around your hand. Wrap around 20 times.
4. Slide the yarn off your hand carefully and snip the end yarn pieces. Cut off another piece of yarn. Thread it through the wrapped pieces to come out to the other side. Tie a double knot. 5. Right underneath the knot, cut through the yarn. 6. Now your yarn should look like this. If you want your unicorn to have a lot of hair, you can make a second one. 7. Put the yarn on top of your pumpkin with the smaller fringe in the front. Glue the horn in place, letting the hair drape around it. 8. Paint on the unicorn's sleepy eyes, nose, and smile. You could also use a marker, but the paint is nice since it can wipe off easily. And...you're done!! :)
Now your doll has her very own unicorn pumpkin!
