Today our mission over here at Create Laugh Learn was to get creative with fabric!
I printed out a template of a unicorn 🦄 head, and traced it onto the matte side of a piece of freezer paper. Then I ironed the freezer paper, glossy side down onto a scrap piece of fleece. This made it a million times easier to cut the fabric without having jagged edges. Freezer paper is amazing!
After cutting your unicorn head, just peel off the freezer paper, and you are ready to create.
Flip the unicorn over, fuzzy side down, and glue the strips of fabric on the back. I cut my scraps about a half-inch thick, and somewhere around four to five inches long. The width, and length of the fabric strips really don’t matter, it’s all up to your personal preference. Don’t worry about perfect placement either, you can always give the unicorn a hair cut when all the glue is dry.
This is the perfect opportunity to get your kid involved. I let my daughter pick which colors she wanted to add. She would hand them to me one, by one, and I would glue them on. If your child is older, they can have fun decorating the unicorn on their own!
When you are done adding all the hair, you can flip the unicorn back over, apply glue all over then horn, and have your child help you put sequins on it. Then add a dot of glue, and have your child add the google eye.
All that’s left to do now is to let all the glue dry, and enjoy your beautiful artwork! I like to place our art on a cookie pan with wax, or parchment paper underneath it so the glue doesn’t stick to anything while it dries. Now I just have to decide if I want to put this on a pillow, or hang it up on the wall in my daughter’s room.
What was the last creative project you did with your kids? We love trying new projects. If you like this project, don’t forget to show your love by pinning it for later!
