Hi y'all! I'm so excited to kick off this fun new monthly challenge that all of my Cricut loving friends and I have begun! What better kick off than a Cricut Christmas Challenge?! A huge thank you to Jeanie and Michelle who had the great idea to get us all together!

As I mentioned, this month's challenge was to create something Christmas inspired with our own little twist on it! I, of course, decided to stick with what I love....

UNICORNS! :)


For this quick and easy, yet adorable ornament you will need the following:

-Cricut Air 2 
-Cricut Vinyl in Black (You can use Outdoor/Permanent as well, but honestly the regular stuff is fine)
-Iridescent Glass (or Acrylic) Ball Ornaments
-2 Different Colors of Felt (I chose purple and white to go along with my color scheme)
-No Bake/Air Dry Polymer Clay
-1.5in. Sheer Ribbon
-Assorted Scrapbooking Flowers in your choice of color 
-If your flowers don't come with tiny pearls in the center, get those too.
-E-600  
-Unicorn SPiT in Purple Hill Majesty and I also used a touch of Spakling SPiT* in Dove's Cry. 
*(Please note: the Sparkling SPiT was a special release, which is no longer available for purchase, though some retailers MIGHT have a few left.)

Method:

One day ahead of time, roll out your air dry polymer clay into two thin, approximately 1 1/2in cylinders. intertwine them to form your unicorn horn. make sure to flatten out the bottom so it will lie flat once glued onto your ornament.


When you are ready for your vinyl, cut out your eyelashes using your Cricut Air2, weed out, and transfer using transfer tape.


Once that is done, cut out your triangles, two larger ones in the one color, and two slightly smaller ones in a different color. If you have a Cricut Maker, you can cut your felt out with the brand new rotary blade! :)

Using the epoxy glue, add the uni-horn and ears, as well as all of your flowers which will serve as the unicorn's mane, onto the top of the ornament. You might have to hold the uni-horn on there until the glue begins to dry so that it stays where you want it to and doesn't tip.

To finish off, take a small brush and paint your (completely air dried and hardened) uni-horn with your Unicorn SPiT, as is only appropriate. I mean, sure, you could use regular paint, but why would you?! ;)


Top it off with your ribbon to hang your adorable Unicorn Ornament!
