No-carve unicorn pumpkin craft with unicorn horn, flower crown and eyelashes
If you love all things unicorn, you will absolutely love this DIY pumpkin craft that is perfect for Halloween!

Hi Creative friends, it's Natalie from Doodlecraft sharing a fun no carve pumpkin craft featuring everyone's favorite animal: unicorns!

I have two different ways you can make this easy unicorn craft for Halloween:

You can make a cute unicorn girl pumpkin or a cool unicorn boy pumpkin with sunglasses. Easy and adorable!

If you hate the mess of carving pumpkins, this is an especially wonderful solution to decorating pumpkins. No sharp tools or goopy mess required!

I made these with fresh white pumpkins but if you want them to last forever, you can buy convincing looking fake pumpkins online.

Directions

DIY Unicorn Pumpkin STEP 1: Make Unicorn Horns

Begin by making the horns.

Roll out a piece of gold clay into a horn about 3 inches long and 3/4" wide at the base.  It should end at a point.

Then insert a toothpick into the base of the horn, leaving about an inch and a half exposed outside of the base of the unicorn horn.  

Bake in the oven according to the package directions for the clay you are using.

Let the horns cool completely.

Now we'll use colored felt to customize each Unicorn.

You can freehand the way you cut out ears, flowers and other accessories.

You'll still have to freehand the shades for the unicorn wearing sunnies so that the size and shape of the sunglasses match the pumpkin you are using.

After the felt has been customized, it is time to hot glue them directly onto the pumpkin.

Begin with the pointy ears. Then add flowers and other accessories as desired.
