Put a dot of hot glue on the top of the hat and add a white pom pom, pull a bit of the beard ‘fluff’ and attach the the bottom of the hat with hot glue, just be careful on this part if your child is helping since the fluff will seep through the glue if you are not careful and burn a little finger. You can then put a circle of hot glue on the top of the ornament, over the spot where the hanger goes and attach the hat. Make a slit in the hat by the hanger and you can easily put an ornament hanger on. Add black foam eyes with a dot of hot glue, we used a hole puncher to cut them out, or you can have the kids draw them on.
Spread hot glue around the hanger and then put the pipe cleaner tightly around, twisting to join the two ends. Once he glue has cooled you can shape the antlers. My nine-year-old added eyes in the same manner as he did with the Santas and used glitter glue for the noses. He used red for Rudolph’s nose and gold for all the regular, old reindeer.
For the angels you will make a curler out of a half a pipe cleaner and twist to hold together. Spread a circle of hot glue around the hanger and place the halo in place, allow to cool.
Take a full pipe cleaner and shape into a figure eight, twist to keep together. Put a large dot of hot glue on one side of the ornament about in the middle, place your figure eight pipe cleaner in top of the glue and allow to cool. Once it has cooled shape the wings as you wish. We did not add eyes to the angels, but you can if you would like using glitter glue.
I cut the yarn into one inch pieces and cut triangles out of the foam for the horn and the ears. Make the triangle for the horn wide enough at the bottom that it will wrap a bit around the hanger.
Using the hot glue gun, put some on one side of the hanger and place your horn triangle on top, hold it in place until the glue cools. For the ears you will put a dot of hot glue and set each ear on the dot, hold in place until it cools.
I suggest that an adult put the mane on the ornament since the hot glue may seep through the yarn. Make a line of hot glue and lay the yarn on top, allow to cool.
My seven-year-old placed the final touches on each unicorn using glitter glue for the eyes and nose. I am pretty sure she would have coated the entire ornament in glitter glue if I had allowed her to, the girl loves glitter.
