Let's Get Started
To make the unicorn, place a Wonderful Halos mandarin in the center of a tissue. Gather up all the edges of the tissue and fold them up over the mandarin, distributing the pleats that have formed as evenly as possible. Secure the tissue in place with a rubber band. Twist the excess tissue to form the unicorn’s horn. Wrap the horn with colored tape.
To make the ears, cut two 1" pieces from a straw. Cut one end of one straw piece at a diagonal.
Keep the bigger half of the cut straw piece and discard the smaller cut piece. Using the bigger cut straw piece, cut along the length of its short side to open it up. The open side will be the front of the ear. Repeat on the second straw piece to make a second ear.
To add the ears, use hot glue or adhesive dots to attach each one to the unicorn. Cut a black dot sticker in half and place each half on the unicorn for eyes, or use a black marker to draw them on. Stick on two small pink dot or heart stickers for cheeks, or draw them on with a pink or red marker.
Cut two ½" pieces of ribbon for bangs (with one end of each piece cut at a diagonal) and glue them both to the front of the unicorn head, at the base of the horn. Then, cut two 3" pieces of ribbon with one end of each piece cut at a diagonal for the mane and glue each end to the back base of the horn.
