Use a pencil to lightly sketch the closed eyes.
Step 3
Trace over the pencil lines with the black paint pen and let dry.
Step 4
Pour some of the Blush Pink paint onto a paper plate (or palette), then dip the largest Spouncer™ into the paint, and make sure the entire sponge is covered.
Step 5
Press the Spouncer™ onto the cheek area of the face, twist and lift straight up away from the pumpkin, to add the pink cheeks. Repeat so you have two cheeks.
Step 6

Trace the ear shapes onto pink foam and cut out. Cut a slit where indicated on the pattern, then tear off the bottom ½" of paper backing. Overlap the slits slightly and stick onto the top of the pumpkin for the unicorn’s ears.

TIP: ADULT: You may want to add a bit of hot glue to keep them in place.

Step 7
Cut a 1" strip of Gold glitter adhesive foam along the long side of the foam sheet.
Step 8
Peel off the backing from the foam strip and begin rolling it tightly at first for the point, and then let it build as you go down, to create a horn shape. Cut a small slit around the bottom of the horn and stick it to the pumpkin in the appropriate place for the unicorn's horn.
Step 9

Make two pink and two lavender tulle pom-poms.

TIP: To make a tulle pom-pom, wrap tulle around your hand (or four fingers) about 10 times. Slide it off your hand and tie a piece of yarn tightly around the middle. Cut the loops open and fluff the pom-pom. Trim to make the ends even.

Step 10
ADULT: Hot glue a pink and a lavender pom-pom to each side of the unicorn's horn.
Step 11
To make the unicorn’s mane, cut and gather two 12"-14" lengths of each color of tulle.
Step 12
ADULT: Tie one end in a knot and hot glue in front of the stem of the pumpkin. Tie yarn down the mane about every 3"-4" and glue the end to the bottom of the pumpkin.
