Cookie Cutter Clay Unicorns
So have you worked with Model Magic yet? If not then definitely start here with these easy to make unicorns using a cookie cutter! If you like the one I used then check it out here at Sweetapolita. This is such a fun way to keep the magic of the holidays alive and going because who really wants to let go? I don’t! So make a whole tray of these (just don’t eat ‘em) and get them decorated to give out to friends and family. Kids will also love making these at home or in the classroom.
I’ve also worked with RedTedArt.com on Maggy’s “31 Days of Love” crafting extravaganza to bring you these little clay uni’s, you can see the post there along with a bunch of other wonderful crafts made by some talented artists and crafters.
If you’re looking for a great art material to work with then definitely try Model Magic by Crayola I’ve raved about it before and I will again, it’s very versatile, clean and easy to work with. Grab your favorite art materials and the kids to get them started on creating their own unicorn pet. They will also make great Valentine’s for the whole class.
Step 1. First choose your clay, I love Model Magic by Crayola, it’s soft and malleable while being super clean for projects at home.
Step 2. Roll out your clay on a smooth, flat surface, try to keep it even like you would for cookie dough.
Step 3. Press your cookie cutter firmly into your clay, remove the excess first and then carefully remove the clay shape from the cookie cutter.
Step 4. Allow your clay to dry before painting, typically 24 hours is sufficient enough.
Step 5. Brush your entire unicorn with glue and sprinkle on super fine glitter. Then add a chunky glitter to details like the horn, mane and tail.
Step 6. If you’d like you can make a hole (for hanging) in your clay by using a plastic straw or you can glue on a magnet to the back.
Enjoy making your clay unicorns, be sure to get creative in the way you use them, perhaps glue them to the front of a card, hang them from a small tree, glue a magnet to the back to put on the fridge or simply put them on display. Also, be sure to share your creations with me in the comments below!
