How to make a DIY Unicorn Ornament with a Mason Jar Ring

Learn how to make this easy and fun unicorn ornament.

Making your own ornaments is always a fun Christmas activity and it’s even better if it’s a DIY unicorn ornament!

Christmas can be expensive and wasteful so we don’t want Christmas crafts to required us to purchase a lot of supplies or make a lot of waste. That’s why these unicorn ornaments are made using craft supplies you likely already have -- like a mason jar lid and scraps.

These unicorn ornaments are very simple to make and you can change them up in a lot of different ways to fit your own style.

These unicorn ornaments would also be a great craft to make at a Christmas party. Set out some different supplies and each person can make their own unique ornament. What a fun party favor!

Cut out cardstock or foam to make two ears and a unicorn horn.

I used white for the outside of the ears and pink for the inside. You could also use one piece for each ear and color the middle to look more like a unicorn ear.
