Unicorn Planter Craft – Supplies:

- Paint Brush

How to make a Unicorn Succulent Planter
Paint the terracotta pots white. This will require 2-3 coats of paint. Allow the paint to dry completely.
Draw a leaf shape onto green cardstock and cut out 2-3 leaves for each pot.
To make the horn, draw a triangle shape onto gold glitter cardstock and cut out.
Glue the horn on the inside of the pot right towards the top.
Glue the leaves and paper or fabric flowers onto the top front of the pot.
Use a pencil to draw eyes onto the pot. Once you are happy with the result, use a black paint pen or permanent marker to trace over the pencil.
Dip your fingertip into pale pink paint and give the pot rosy cheeks, if you’d like!
Fill the terracotta pot with soil and then plant your succulents inside.
Succulent Care Tip
To water your plant, soak the soil each time it’s become completely dry. Allow excess water to drain out of the bottom. Do not allow the plant to soak in a pool of water all day or night. Once the soil dries out, you may soak the plant again
Love this fabulously whimsical Unicorn Headband DIY! These Unicorn Ears and Horns would make a wonderful party craft for tweens or turn them into a kit and give them as party favours! So cute!!
