Step-by-step tutorial

  • Step 1

    You do need hot glue to make this headband sturdy, so adult assistance is a must.

    Next, we started rolling. My daughter helped keep a tight roll and I added hot glue as we went.

  • Step 4

    Once you get to the end add a good amount of glue to keep it closed and trim the bottom to make an even end.

  • Step 5

    We cut a round piece of foam and glued it to the bottom so we have a flat surface to attach to the headband.

  • Step 6

    Next, some ribbon added just the right fancy unicorn touch! I used hot glue to attach this as well. My daughter just loved designing these herself!

  • Step 7

    Once we had our horns done all we had to do was attach them right to the headband with some more hot glue. Fabric headbands work best for this.
