Here’s How to Make it
Download and print the coffee cozy patterns HERE. Cut out, trace onto chipboard and cut out again. Trace cozy pattern on to Kunin Premiumfelt™ White, trace horn pattern on to Kunin Classicfelt™ Gold and trace inside ear pattern on to Kunin Classicfelt™ Baby Pink with MONO Drawing Pen 05. Cut out all pieces with scissors.
TIP: Remember to cut INSIDE the lines for a neat and clean finished project.
Outline Unicorn Horn with glitter glue and set aside to dry. Attach Baby Pink inside ear pieces to center of ears with hot glue.
