Cookie Cutter Clay Unicorns (For Valentine’s Day)
“31 Days of Love” is just about upon us and it’s such a great way to continue the magic of the holiday season. I’ve created these whimsical unicorns made with clay to make for your friends and family! These Uni’s are cut using a cookie cutter and they look fantastic, almost good enough to eat!. Kids just love using clay too for art projects and I strongly suggest you try out an air dry clay or something like Model Magic by Crayola. You can also find a bunch of unicorn project ideas at the theartdream.com.

How to make a Clay Unicorn Ornament Step by Step
Step 1. First choose your clay, I love Model Magic by Crayola, it’s soft and malleable while being super clean for projects at home.
Step 2. Roll out your clay on a smooth, flat surface, try to keep it even like you would for cookie dough.
Step 3. Press your cookie cutter firmly into your clay, remove the excess first and then carefully remove the clay shape from the cookie cutter.
Step 4. Allow your clay to dry before painting, typically 24 hours is sufficient enough. Paint the Mane, Horn, Tail and hooves.
Step 5. Brush your entire unicorn with glue and sprinkle on super fine glitter. Then add a chunky glitter to details like the horn, mane and tail.
Step 6. If you’d like you can make a hole (for hanging) in your clay by using a plastic straw or you can glue on a magnet to the back.
