Paper Mache Animal Head

Create this whimsical 3D artwork for your child’s room!
Even though I’m a big, grown-up girl I feel sentimental about unicorns. As a child I was fascinated by this woodland creature that was full of kindness and grace, and had a magical power to heal wounds and render poisoned water potable.

If your little one loves fairytales with unicorns, there’s no doubt that this paper mache decor will make her or him happy. Ashley from Lil Blue Boo, who’s the author of this tutorial, made this artsy sculpture in a few hours. With her comprehensive tutorial, this project seems quite easy, and the effect is adorable.
