Unicorn Costume Step 1

1. Horn: See the basic horns instructions. Create one long horn from foil and cover it with masking tape. Cut a 2-1/2- by 3-1/2-inch tongue shape out of cardboard. Tape the horn to the rounded end of the shape and tape the straight end to the headband (A). Paint the horn and cardboard and let it dry before adding glue and glitter.

2. For a forelock, cut two 4-inch squares of felt into a fringe. Stack them and attach them to the headband and the cardboard with colored duct tape. Cut two small ear shapes from felt. Make a crease in their flat ends and attach them to the headband with more duct tape.

3. Mane: Cut two 4-inch-wide strips of felt long enough to go from the top of the sweatshirt hood to the bottom of the back. Fringe both pieces, leaving about 3/4 inch of one edge uncut. Adhere the two mane pieces to the sweatshirt with colored duct tape (B).

4. Tail: Cut a square of felt into fringe. Glue it to the end of a felt rectangle, then roll it up into a tail. Tape it to the pants waistband.
