DIY – Unicorn in a Walnut
While thrifting I come across many strange and wonderful things. Once such thing, was baby unicorn sleeping in a walnut shell. I immediately took a picture to preserve the awesomeness but hesitated to buy it because of it’s dingy appearance. Of course, now I wish I had.
In preparation for the office’s annual ugly ornament exchange, I have attempted to recreate it! Though my blanket lacks the proper fluff and I can’t get it to hang like a cradle, I am still proud of my work.
The original inspiration, hanging in the thrift store.
Miranda’s Ugly Ornament – Unicorn Cradled in a Walnut
Cutting out the head from sparkly velvety fabric. I think it’s an old Victoria’s Secret bag.
Sewing the mane. Yeah, I could have done it on the sewing machine much faster but I didn’t want to move away from my seat by the wood stove.
Mane and head become one!
Time to insert the horn, made from pipe cleaner with silver thread wrapped around it.
Gluing in the tail and loop. Maybe I should have put a weight in there to get it to hang right.
Only things left are the blanket and bow!
Kittens and Unicorns go together like sparkles and rainbows.
