    With a small amount of glue (especially along the back of the head), glue the two unicorn heads together along the outside edge. Be sure to leave the neck open and place the horn between the cardboard at the top. Allow glue to dry.


    Punch holes along the back of the head.

    Tie the long pieces of yarn in each of the holes to make a beautiful unicorn mane. This is a great way to use up leftover yarn. If you don’t have yarn try strips of crepe paper or tulle.

    Stick a yardstick or wooden dowel in the neck opening and you are ready to ride! We did end up tying on a piece of ribbon to look like a bridle. This gave the girls something to hold onto.
