Crocheted Unicorn Ornament

Categories: Kid Friendly, Crochet, Holiday

Unicorns are still really popular and lately I have been seeing lots of unicorn Christmas ornaments made with glass balls that have a horn, ears, flowers, and eyes added to it. I decided to make a crocheted version of that ornament. I started by crocheting a round ball and stuffing it with Poly-Fil. Then I used a smaller hook and embroidery floss to crochet small ears, a horn, flowers and leaves  and sewed them on. I then embroidererd closed eyes to finish the unicorn. A loop of embroidery floss was added as a hanging loop and it was ready to hang on the tree. The perfect ornament for any unicorn loving little girl.
