If you have a unicorn fan in your home these unicorn Christmas tree ornaments are going to be a big hit! In years past my family and I have made many homemade ornaments at Christmas time & the ones I love most are the ones we’ve made using a self-drying white clay we made at home. This year my daughter and I decided to make unicorns and Llamas. (See Llamas here soon)
These unicorn Christmas tree ornaments are gorgeous when left alone in their original white porcelain look or they could be painted with beautiful glitter paints or fun & bright colors! They are so darling that I do believe any little unicorn loving girl would adore hanging these in her room year round!

DIY Unicorn Christmas Tree Ornaments:
What You Need:
- DIY Baking Soda/cornstarch clay (Recipe Here)
- Unicorn cookie cutter (Here)
- Yarn or string (We used this type)
- Toothpicks or straw
What You Do:
- Make clay recipe and let cool a while so it’s easy to handle and move
- Cut out unicorn shapes using the unicorn cookie cutter
- Make holes in the tops of the shapes that aren’t too close to the edge of the unicorn. We made sure to place ours in a way that would allow the unicorn to hang balanced in a way we’d like.
- Allow them to dry for a few days.
- After they are completely dry and you are ready to hang them loop a string through and tie a not on the end to hang the Unicorn Christmas tree ornament from the tree.
When drying I had mine laying flat on top of parchment paper on a cookie sheet. After a few hours I flipped them over so that the other side would dry. I later rotated them a few more times.
We left ours alone but these could be painted over for added color. You could also add glitter to them!
