XIV. XV. How to make your unicorn craft: Print our unicorn template and cut it out. Trace it onto a piece of craft foam and cut that out. We used craft foam instead of a paper so it would stand up to the weight of the decorations. Our unicorn template does not have a horn on it because the girls wanted to make their own horns out of some glittery craft foam that I have. Make a horn however your child would like and add it onto the head of the horse. Decorate however you would like. We used markers and craft gems (available at any craft store) for most of our decorations. The girls also used the gold craft foam to add wings (a My Little Pony influence I believe). Glue on yarn to make the tail and the mane of the unicorns. We had some Some fun-facts about unicorns! A unicorn is a legendary animal mentioned in many of the Asian and European myths. Many scientists believe a unicorn could have been a distorted form of a rhinoceros. There are many theories based on this magnificent beast. However, there were no records of it being captured by anyone. People of medieval ages believed a unicorn runs silently through the forest and is a savage animal. However, a virgin could tame it. Hence, a unicorn is mainly associated with Virgin Mary. There is also a belief, if the horn of a unicorn were placed on an injury, it would heal the wound. In ancient times, it was believed unicorn's horn was powerful enough to neutralize the effects of poison in food and drinks. Hence, many cups were made from these horns. However, there is no proof whether these cups were made from the horn of unicorns. Possessing even a fragment of a unicorn's horn could prolong life of a person, according to the belief of the medieval period. Queen Elizabeth was presented with a narwhal tusk in 1577. During that period it was believed to be a unicorn's horn. It was valued somewhere between 10,000 pounds and Pound 40,000. It is still considered as a royal treasure. A beautiful and carved "unicorn horn" was auctioned at Christie's in London for half million pounds in 1994. Till late 18th century, it was a custom in France to carry a cup made from unicorn horn or a horn of unicorn to test whether the food and drinks were poisoned or not.
