Black Unicorn Pumpkin

We have finally arrived at Day 13 of the 13 Days of  Handmade Halloween and I'm so excited to be the one to close out our series with a DIY on how to make a Black Unicorn Pumpkin.

So, the story behind this idea was spontaneously inspired by my sweet friend, Cindy's Black Unicorn planner sticker designs that she sells in her Etsy shop, The Queen Pea!  I was looking for a white pumpkin for this project and couldn't find the right style or size.   There were bunches of black pumpkins available so, I figured...hey...I'll take a cue from Cindy and make a black unicorn! 

Also, m
y daughter loves unicorns right now and I know they're super trendy so, I figured, why not?  So, she and I worked on making her very own 'Uni-Pumpkin'.

Here's the how-to....


Craft Pumpkin (Black)
Adhesive Glittered Craft Foam
Faux Flowers
Yarn pompoms, various sizes
Puff Paint
Hot Glue
To create the unicorn pumpkin, first, cut out two sets of triangles in two sizes for the ears out of foam and glue them together and set aside.   Take about a 4" square of glittered foam and cut a curved end from the bottom of the square from one corner to the opposite corner, creating a curved triangle.  Shape the foam into a cone and twist to create a horn.  Set aside.

Next, create a loop 12"-15" of yarn by winding the yarn around a wide piece of cardboard.  You can also use your arm bent at the elbow.   Once you have the yarn looped as many times as you'd like (around 30-50 loops) you can tie it off at one end about 1/3 of the way from the top of one end of the yarn loop.  Then, cut each looped end in half.  This will be the mane.  Attach the mane with hot glue, leaving the 'stem' of the pumpkin exposed. 

Next, add the horn to the stem area and ears attach the ears  to the top of the pumpkin.  After that, hot glue yarn pompoms in various sizes in front of the horn and for a final touch,  a few faux flowers to the unicorn.

Then, using puff paint and draw on the eyes and mouth. 

This unicorn pumpkin is my fave thing made this far for Halloween since it is all my sweet girl's handmade creation.....and she just loves it
