This Unicorn Christmas Topper Is The Hottest Holiday Item For 2018

Just when you thought that there couldn’t be anymore unicorn décor, products, shirts, glitter, games and more at department and retail stores, we’ve got news for you. There’s a new unicorn Christmas tree topper available, and yes, you absolutely need it for your tree this holiday season.

There’s a new, whimsical and magical Christmas tree topper taking over inside households all across the country and fans can’t stop raving about it. Here’s the best part about it: it’s not going to cost you your entire holiday budget to buy one. In fact, you can’t purchase it in any retail or department store. That’s because unicorn tree toppers can only be made and not bought, thanks to a new tutorial by a crafty blogger whose idea has since gone viral.

If you’ve got some free time on your hands during the weekends (and no, you don’t have to respond to that), DIY blogger A Subtle Revelry has easy to follow instructions for creating your own unicorn topper. You will need to make a quick stop to Michaels for the following: white glitter felt, mint felt, embroidery floss, different colored yawn, a sharpie, glue gun, cotton stuffing, and more.

So, what is it that makes unicorns so darn special? From unicorn inspired cakes and cupcakes, ornaments, and personalized décor fans just can’t get enough of them. The mythical animal that is typically represented as a horse with a single straight horn projecting from its forehead is the mascot for basically every tween, pre-teen and teen out there. You will be the coolest mom in the 5th grade after finishing this one-of-a-kind masterpiece.

There are several other tutorials you can follow on the internet if you're looking for a unique type of unicorn topper. Or to choose a different feel to go with your tree.

This one from Jenny C on YouTube has a different feel than the one from A Subtle Revelry both are gorgeous, but this one uses different materials making up the unicorn topper.

We know this isn't typical for holiday tree decorations -- but seriously, who doesn't love a unicorn and to have their tree one-of-a-kind?

Will you be making one of these?
