How to make a unicorn horn sleep mask with free printable pattern

Unicorns are the best, most magical creatures in the world. They are beautiful because they get so much sleep at night. Make a darling DIY unicorn sleep mask to help aid in a good night sleep. This would be a great unicorn party favor or summer craft for tweens and teens!

The sleep mask features a DIY unicorn horn and unicorn ears. Of course we give you a free pattern to cut out the unicorn horn, unicorn ears, decorative flowers and pretty unicorn eyes so that your mask is magical perfection. 

The part of the sleep mask that goes against your face is made from a recycled t-shirt so that it is nice and soft. It's a great way to give new life to an old t-shirt with holes or that you don't want to wear anymore.
