Halloween is right around the corner and since we have done so many unicorn posts this year it only seemed right to make a unicorn costume for your doll! This craft is very simple and you can make so many adjustments depending what materials you have on hand and how you want the mane/tail to look. I really liked the short spiky crazy look. You can change the length of the felt if you want it to hang in long strips. You can also use custom colors. I went for a bright whimsical look, but you can go more soft with pastels. Have fun and Just Craft It!

Materials Needed:

  • Felt Sheets *Thin ones work best for stretching
    • If you cannot get felt sheets you can use, scrap fleece, old t-shirts, socks, yarn or tulle!
  • 2 White Socks
  • 4 Small Hair Ties
  • Glue
  • Small Recycled Cup for Trick or Treat Bucket
    • Detergent Cup
    • Yogurt Cup
    • Applesauce Cup
    • Spray Paint Top
  • Scrap Ribbon for Handle
  • Paint or Puffy Paint for Eyes

      Although I love unicorns, I find this costume a little strange. Personally, I wouldn’t where this and neither would my friends. Anyway, can you make the Grand Hotel?
