Create a Unicorn Alicorn Headband
- 20 Minutes
What You'll Need
- A headband (that you don't mind Doodling on)
- Unicorn Headband Stencil
- 3Doodler 3D Printing Pen
- 3Doodler Plastic
- Clear Tape & Scissors (optional)
- Mod Podge Sparkle (or glitter, stickers, etc) for extra flare
1 Assemble your materials!
For this project, you’re going to need to find a few extra supplies, including a plain headband, some clear tape (to cover your stencil), scissors (to cut your stencil out), and some fun glitter (we used Mod Podge) - for extra pizazz! As always, make sure you have your 3Doodler pen and compatible plastic at the ready.
2 Cover the stencils in clear tape (optional), cut them out & assemble the horn
Cover Stencils A & B in clear plastic tape so that you can easily remove the paper cone from your Doodle once you are done. Or you can keep the paper stencil lining in the Doodle for extra support.
Cut out stencil A along the dotted lines. Starting at one long side of the rounded triangle, roll your paper into a cone shape. Use tape to secure the seam. Your alicorn should be starting to look like a real unicorn horn now!
3 Doodle the horn!
Beginning at the top of the cone shape, use your 3D pen and plastics to Doodle around the top of the paper horn. Work your way down the horn until you reach the bottom.
You can choose to keep the plastic-lined paper under your Doodle as a reinforcement, or slide the paper out of the cone-shaped Doodle after it has hardened -- it’s up to you!
4 Doodle Stencil B (the ears)
Now that you've Doodled your alicorn, it's time to move onto completing the look by Doodling your unicorn ears.
5 Use your imagination to make it bigger!
What will your unicorn horn look like? Will it be sparkly? Rainbow-colored? Pastel? Will it include flowers? Squiggly lines? Something else? Use your 3Doodler Pen to add on to your Doodle. In this tutorial, we used Mod Podge Sparkle to add flare to the alicorn.
6 Attach your completed horn and ears to a headband
After you’ve finished creating your special unicorn horn and ears, it’s time to secure them to your headband. You can use a few dots of 3Doodler plastic to affix the horn and ears to your headband, and then to reinforce them with additional plastic.
