DIY Unicorn Flower Box Planter – MATERIALS:
- White hat box or white flower pot
- Artificial flowers or fresh flowers
- If using artificial flowers, garden rocks or plant pebbles
- Pink glitter and gold glitter cardstock
- White stiff felt
- Hot glue gun
- 3 sticks (we used colored lollipop sticks)
- Black construction paper
Step 1. Look online for clip art of eyelashes, scale down to the size that fits your planter or box, print out, cut and use as templates to trace and cut eyelashes on black construction paper. Of course you can also hand-draw and cut your own eyelashes.
Step 2. Cut out ear shapes on your white felt, then inner ears with your pink glitter paper. Glue the pink inner ears to the white.
Step 3. Make your cone. Trace a triangle on your gold glitter paper that is approximately 8.5″ across and 10″ long on the sides with a 1″ top. Roll into a cone and hot glue in place. Trim the bottom to make it as short as you want.
Step 4. Gather your flowers into a bouquet with a rubber band (for artificial flowers). If using fresh flowers, you can simply add to the water in your planter or use floral foam.
Step 5. Add your flowers inside the box or planter, if using fake flowers, add pebbles, rocks, or stones to keep the bouquet in place.
Step 6. Assemble the final details. Glue the black eyelashes to the planter, glue your sticks to the ears and cone and then stick them into place to make your unicorn flower box!
