Can you guys believe it’s finally October?? I feel like I’ve been waiting forever for cooler weather. This month I have a few craft projects that have been sitting in my brain for a while, and I can’t wait to share them all!

First up we have a special DIY Unicorn Fall Flower Crown – and it’s so easy. You can easily make material substitutions, and can even forego the unicorn horn for a simple flower crown. These are perfect for a fun and fancy magical halloween costume, or just to add some flair to an everyday look!

FULL TUTORIAL UNDER THE CUT!

YOU WILL NEED

  • Worbla or clay
  • Heat gun (if worbla)
  • Gesso or primer
  • Gold & dark gold paint
  • Glitter
  • Modpodge
  • 4-5 stalks of faux flowers
  • Hot glue
  • Headband

UNICORN HORN
I chose to use worbla for the horn, but baking clay or even model magic will work, too. Just keep in mind the weight of using clay.

Directions:

  • Heat up your worbla scraps until you can roll them into a long cylinder
  • Bend the cylinder into a horseshoe shape
  • Twist the ends around each other until you get to the top. Carefully shape the tip into a point, and flatten the bottom
  • Let dry
  • Gesso and/or prime the horn. If you gesso, do at least 4 and sand down the excess
  • Paint over with a few coats of acrylic gold
  • I “shaded” the creases of the folds with a darker gold mixed with pink. This is optional, but it gives it some depth
  • To add glitter, coat the horn in mod podge
  • Sprinkle on your glitter, and seal with 2-3 more coats of mod podge
  • Let dry
  • And you have a beautiful horn!

 

FLOWER CROWN
For this particular crown, I chose purples, reds, and oragnes for fall, but you can choose any colors you like! You also don’t need to include the horn if you don’t want to – I made a flower crown for one of my costumes, you can see it here and here!!

Directions:

  • Snip off the stems of your flowers, leaving about 1/4:” – ½” of stem
  • Lay your crown out – place the flowers in the way you think you’ll want them to sit. I like to keep the larger flowers towards the middle and smaller towards the ends. Bulkier & taller in the middle is my personal favorite
  • Glue your unicorn horn in the top center
  • Begin by adding 2 large flowers to each side
  • Continue to fill the headband’s surface with flowers, until about 2″ from the ends
  • Then add a second layer! Glue flowers up the horn, gluing to the under layer and the horn itself
  • Fan the flowers out, staying tall in the center and thinning out towards the ends
  • Add as many as you’d like!
