Make a sweet DIY unicorn ornament that will give your Christmas tree just a touch of magic. This felt unicorn can be made in lots of different colors!

We have two different Christmas trees in our house. We have one for show that has coordinated colors, and then we have one that has all of our memorable and handmade ornaments.

This year I made a bunch of new ornaments for the kids, like this DIY unicorn ornament, to make our Christmas tree extra special with what our kids love at the moment.

As a child every year I got a new ornament to put on the Christmas tree, and then when I moved away and got married I was able to start my own Christmas tree with the ornament collection. I want to do that for my kids, so I’ve slowly started making them handmade ornaments of things they love at the moment.

DIY Unicorn Ornament


Use the Cricut Maker to cut out the felt unicorn shapes. You need two unicorn heads per one ornament.

Cut out the unicorn details out of iron-on vinyl.

Cut a piece of string 6 inches to 8 inches long. Fold it in half and tie the raw edges in a knot.

Place the knot in between the two layers of the felt unicorn head. Match up the two laers of felt and clip together.

Sew around the edge of the unicorn 1/8 inch from the edge. It was a little tricky sewing the horn, I decided to do one zigzag line down the middle of the horn.
