Unicorn Cardboard Safari

Not exactly DIY, but more of an assemble-it-yourself project! Got this unicorn wall decor from Urban Outfitters in Oxford Street, London. It comes in a flat pack, smaller than letter size paper.


Each piece is numbered and the instructions are pretty easy to follow.


There are about 23 main pieces, excluding the tiny parts for the horn.


It’s a breeze to assemble once you get the three biggest pieces together.


Here it is slowly coming together…


Attaching the nose…


Don’t forget the hair! I think ill switch this up with some metallic or rainbow ones sometime…


Hang on a hook and you’re all done!


Merlin Jr. up front…


White on white looks great, but I thought I’d try adding some color…


You can’t go wrong with bright beads and shades. 🙂


Check out all the other cool stuff from Cardboard Safari at their Etsy shop. Me want more!
