The supplies needed to make the felt unicorn ornament.

List of Supplies:

All the felt pieces needed to make the unicorn ornament.

Step 1:

Prepare the patterns from the template by printing and cutting them out. Select the felt fabrics for the unicorn. Trace the patterns on the selected felt fabrics and cut them out using scissors.

Get the TEMPLATE and print it out.

Orange, pink, and purple felt are coiled up into flowers.

Step 2:

Take a spiral pattern and roll it from its outer end towards the center. Secure the roll by gluing it with the center. Similarly, create rolled spiral flowers with the other spiral patterns. Aren’t they super pretty?

Step 3:

Take any one of the round patterns and the semi-circular pattern. Place the semi-circular pattern on the round pattern by matching their sides. Use hot glue gun to attach both pieces together.

The two circles have cute eyes drawn on and are prepared for the needle.

Step 4:

Use a marker to draw the eyes, nose, and lip of the unicorn.

The eyes, eyelashes, and mouth are sewn on with black thread.

Step 5:

Use black thread and needle to stitch the traced parts from the previous step.

White pieces of the unicorn head and ears are glued together. Then there is a gold unicorn horn is ready to be sewn on.

Step 6:

Take the other round cut out and place it on a flat surface. Place the ears on 2 sides of the top end (of the round piece). Take the strip, fold it in half and place it between the ears by overlapping 1 cm of its open end with the round piece. Also, attach the 2 horn cutouts together using hot glue.

The felt gold unicorn horn is glued onto the unicorn head.

Step 7:

Place the horn on the folded strip, again overlapping 1 cm of the horns straight end with the round pattern.

The unicorn face is placed on top of the other half (white head with horn) to be sewn together.
Step 8:

Now place the stitched round piece on the top of the plain one. Make sure that all sides of the 2 round cutouts are matched nicely.

Sew the face onto the head on with white thread.

Step 9:

Prepare needle and thread to stitch all items together; start stitching from any one of the ears and stitching along the top side first. Carefully stitch the top side to make sure that all items are attached together (horn, ears, folded strip, the 2 round cutouts).
