It seems to be raining unicorns lately. From unicorn food to unicorn pinatas, unicorn costumes, and unicorn tees, there’s no shortage of fun featuring these magical creatures.

With the Christmas Holidays coming up, we wanted to try making our own glittery unicorn ornaments.

Have you tried glittering ornaments before? It’s surprisingly simple. Many tutorials can be found all over Pinterest. We made some a couple of years ago, and it’s now a pretty well-known DIY unicorn ornament using a common home cleaning supply (see below to see what it is).

To keep the unicorn ornament DIY simple (so that even kids can make them) we simply used craft clay as the unicorn horns for baubles and stickers for the flowers; and just a marker for the face.

We also show you 3 other ways to jazz up your unicorn glitter ornament by adding names on the back, and adding stickers like stars and snowflakes. All of these will fit in with the winter holiday theme and your children will love them!
