Decoupage Unicorn Craft in 5 Easy Steps

You might feel daunted by the prospect of decoupage, but it’s actually a really simple way of creating visually stunning artwork. I also find it incredibly therapeutic, due to the repetitive processes involved. So, without anymore waffling from me, here are the 5 easy steps to create a decoupage unicorn craft!

 

Step 1 : Go shopping!

I like this step the best. Who doesn’t love a good craft shopping spree?! You will need:

What a beautiful decoupage unicorn!

Step 2 : Tear up the paper!

The first step to this kind of decoupage is tearing up the paper. This will create a gorgeous effect upon our lovely decoupage unicorn and it’s also kinda satisfying tearing it all up!

Step 3 : Get messy!

Crack open the Modge Podge and get cracking! Whack some Modge Podge in the right area of your unicorn’s body and pop a piece of decoupage paper on top. Then you glue over the top to give it a beautiful finish. Keep doing this whilst also layering the pieces on top of each other.

Don’t forget to use different paper in different areas of your unicorn, this will make it look so much more interesting!

Step 4 : Let your decoupage unicorn dry!

Let your glorious creation dry. I’m always watching mine, desperate to see how it’s turned out! Be patient though, it’ll be well worth it!

 

Step 5 : Embellish

Add any embellishments you like, from beads and gems to glitter! I went with a really simply effect with flower eyes. I love how my decoupage unicorn craft turned out, what do you think?

    I just love this decoupage unicorn craft. It reminded me of my mother. If she was alive, I would have been making this for her. She loved unicorns. I do want to try this decoupage project just for the fun of it and because it is so adorable.

      Ah, that’s so lovely for you to say. I’m so happy the decoupage unicorn reminded you of your mother, that’s so sweet. There are so many shapes and other things from Hobbycraft, you could do lots of different ones 🙂
