How-To Make a Unicorn Horn Headband

A little over a month ago, I threw a DIY My Little Pony Party for my 5-year-old. For the party, I made unicorn horn headbands for all of the girls and promised a tutorial!

How-To Make a Unicorn Horn Headband

Unicorn Headband tutorial


Let's get started!

You'll need:

Felt (cream and pink), paper, stuffing, gold thread, hot glue gun and glue sticks, scissors, headband. and sewing pins.
Cut out a pattern for the ears and the horn from pink and cream felt. The ears I free handed, but thought I'd share the unicorn horn pattern with you:



Start at the top of the horn and slowly roll it into a point. Use the hot glue gun to secure it ever roll or so.


When the top is completely rolled and glued in place. Bring both of the ends together and glue.


 Stuff the horn with stuffing or batting - I used pillow fill from an old pillow.


Cut a small circle of cream felt and close the horn's opening.

Start at the top of the horn, glue a piece of gold thread to the back where the felt pieces meet. Wrap the thread around the horn, pulling on it a little to give the horn definition.


Cut the thread and glue the end to the bottom of the horn.

Use a paper template to cut out the ears and the middle of the ears.


Make sure the main ear piece is connected. This allows you to wrap it around the headband.


Glue the horn and the ears to the headband.


Use another circle on the underside of the horn that slightly folds up onto the horn to keep it sturdy.

Wrap the ears around the headband and glue together. Then, glue the smaller, middle section of the ear to the front of the folded ear piece.


The underside of the headband should look like this when you're finished.


Before you know it, you'll have made 10 of these babies and you're little one will be the happiest birthday girl ever!!
