  3. Paint the plaque in Aquamarine, the unicorn profile in Pearl, and the horn in 24K Gold with thin cascading stripes of Aquamarine along the ridge of the horn, mimicking a spiral.

    Step 3 Example
  5. Cut various colors of string/fringe into strips long enough to hang over the side of the unicorn cut-out and down toward the bottom edge of the plaque once the unicorn has been adhered.
    Step 4 Example
  6. On the back of the unicorn shape, behind the mane, add several drops of hot glue and press the colored fringe into the glue, alternating colors as you go. Once finished, add hot glue to the entire back surface and press against the Aquamarine plaque and hold firm (or weigh down) until dry.
