My little one has a large obsession with unicorns. We have been looking at all the cool things people have been making out of the plastic animals lately and my daughter thought it would be cool to have a unicorn framed head for her dollhouse instead of the traditional deer.  Instead of using the expensive unicorn toys, we used dollar store finds to make this project.

Remove Horse Head

Start by removing the head of the plastic animal with a large knife. I used a serrated kitchen knife and that worked fine.  Next, I  removed and discarded the plastic/glass from the frame. I glued the head of the horse to the cardboard backer of the frame. 

Add Horn

While the glue dries roll the Sculpey into a long thin log. Cut it into 2 pieces and gently twist them together. Decide how long the horn needs to be and cut the length. Again, gently pinch the twisted horn into a point. Use the E6000 glue to attach the horn to the horse’s forehead.  Let dry.

White Spray Paint

Once the glue is dry, apply coats of white spray paint (or whatever color you choose). It took 2 coats to cover the bright pink of out frame.  Let the paint dry. 

Let Dry

Now the unicorn is ready to hang.
