DIY Winged Unicorn Christmas Tree Decorations – Items Needed
- White felt
Yarn (wool, acrylic, cotton, any color)
2 black beads or buttons
White organza ribbon
Lace or mesh with some glitter
Pink fabric scraps (optional)
White sewing thread
Black sewing thread
- Embroidery needles
1. Cut the Unicorn, Wings, Ears and the Horn Out of Felt.
The first thing we’re going to do is cutting the unicorn shape out of the felt. The wings, ears and horn will be cut separately, so leave them out of the unicorn’s body. It’s easier to cut the felt unicorn, if you make a pattern first. The shape of the unicorn can be rounded, with round legs. We’re not aiming to get a realistic unicorn shape here.
Cut two reversed pieces of felt for the unicorn’s body. Also, cut two unicorn ears. You can cut two smaller pieces of a different fabric to make the insides of the ears, if you want. Cut two reversed wings of the felt as well. Then, cut two reversed pieces of the lace or mesh, making them the same shape as the wings.
Cut a triangular shape of felt for the unicorn’s horn. Also, cut a similar shape of the lace or mesh.
2. Cut Lengths of Yarn for the Mane and Tail.
Cut some lengths of yarn for the unicorn’s mane and tail. Make sure you cut each length double the length you want the mane and tail to be. You can also cut some shorter lengths of yarn for the unicorn’s bangs.
You can tie the tail hair together, so that the unicorn’s tail won’t look scattered.
3. Sew the Unicorn’s Horn and Ears.
Roll the piece of felt you cut for the unicorn horn, so that it becomes a horn. Sew the horn to keep it in this shape.
Next, take the piece of lace or mesh you cut for the unicorn horn. Roll it around the horn to decorate it, and sew it to attach it to the horn.
If you cut the smaller pieces of fabric to decorate the unicorn’s ears, sew the pieces to the ears. Sew them on the front sides of the ears. Then, sew the ears on each side of the unicorn; the left ear on the left side and the right ear on the right side.
4. Sew the Wings.
Now, let’s sew the pieces of lace or mesh to the unicorn’s wings. Sew the lace on the outside of the wing.
Take the length of ribbon and fold it in two. Sew the wings to the ribbon, so that they cover it.
5. Sew the Winged Unicorn.
We’re going to sew the unicorn together and attach all the pieces to the body. I would suggest starting at the unicorn’s neck. Sew upwards towards the face. When you reach the forehead, insert the unicorn’s horn and some shorter lengths of yarn for the bangs between the two pieces of unicorn’s body. Keep sewing.
Insert some mane hair and the unicorn’s ears on top of the head. Attach them by sewing. Insert more mane hair as far down as you want to, and keep sewing.
At the middle of the unicorn’s back, insert the ribbon and the wings. Sew them in place.
When you reach the unicorn’s bum, insert the tail and sew it in place. Keep sewing.
Remember to leave a hole to insert the filling. Then, sew the unicorn together.
6. Sew the Eyes for the Unicorn.
Finally, we’re going to sew the eyes for the winged unicorn. You can use the same thread for sewing both of the eyes. Sew through the unicorn’s head, so that the eyes are in the same place on both sides of the unicorn’s face.
7. Hang the Winged Unicorn on a Christmas Tree.
That’s it, now you can hang your DIY winged unicorn on a Christmas tree!
