DIY Unicorn Costume
Who doesn't love a good DIY costume? You know, the ones you put together after hunting for things in the back of your closet?
I know I do, and it's always such a pleasure to watch your everyday clothes transform into something magical before your eyes!
But the million-dollar question is: how do you make a Unicorn Halloween costume?
How to Make a Unicorn Costume
While the online world is overflowing with inspiration and out-of-the-box ideas, it can easily get overwhelming. My ideal way to begin a DIY Unicorn Halloween Costume is to scroll through Pinterest and see if anything sparks my interest like the fantastic creation (above) by Craftaholics Anonymous.
The variety of styles and ideas you'll find on Pinterest boards is truly mind-boggling, but they are a great source of inspiration and can be adapted to suit your needs.
The next step is to separate the different elements of your Halloween Unicorn costume and find household things to replicate them. A great starting point would be to use a simple white hoodie. From there, you can get to work on your Unicorn headband, and colourful thread and scraps of cloth or tulle can easily be reworked into a tail and a mane. Et voilà, you've got yourself a cute little Unicorn costume!
To be the best DIY Unicorn you can be, head to Good Housekeeping which is packed with wonderful DIY Unicorn dress-up costume options such as this fabulous children's Unicorn costume (above) by Tatertots and Jello.
Clever, crafty people should also check out DIY With Primary for more tips on how to create a beautiful Unicorn costume with your bare hands. You'll just need your hot glue gun and some tulle and yarn. (Thank God for no-sew options, am I right?!).
And where are all the Thelma the Unicorn fans?
If you fancy dressing up as your favourite book character, then we have a DIY option for a Thelma the Unicorn costume.
Claire, Collected has a guide for making an adorable Thelma the Unicorn costume (below) that is simple enough to put together and can be adapted to create other Unicorn costumes as well!
