What You'll Need

  • Iridescent glass ball ornament
  • White craft paint
  • Air dry clay
  • Gold spray paint
  • Pink craft paint
  • Paint brush
  • Black vinyl eyelashes
  • Pink ribbon
  • Hot glue gun
  • Pink faux flowers

Step 1: Prep the Ornament

Remove the metal hook and pour white paint into your glass ornament to turn your ornament a white iridescent color. Tip the ornament and let the excess paint drain out and let dry completely. Once dry, replace metal hook and put the black eyelashes onto the outside of your unicorn. Make the horn by shaping air dry clay and letting it dry completely. Spray paint it gold and let dry. 

Step 2: Add Details

Once dry, hot glue your horn to the top of the unicorn. Place it in front of the hanging hook to hide it. Hot glue your pink flowers onto your ornament making a flower crown. Try using one flower type in different shades of pink or use a mix of colors for a rainbow look. Using pink craft paint, add small circles to make the unicorn cheeks. Allow to dry completely before hanging. 

Step 3: Add Ribbon

To hang, add a large piece of pink ribbon. Size the ribbon based on how low you'd like the ornament to hang. Make several of these handmade ornaments and you'll have the most magical Christmas tree!
