I love to make things when I need to relax and allocate time for myself every week to make sure I do something creative. I often upload videos to youtube and as I had a new camera to try out, I decided to make some unicorn jewellery. Sadly the camera didn’t do a very good job at staying sharp and had to limit how much I can zoom in on the video before it blurred. I apologise for that and won’t be using it again.
This style used to be one of my biggest sellers when I ran my online store and went to craft events, so I am now sharing with you how I used to make them. A list of supplies are below.
Laser cut wooden shapes – Ebay has a huge variety or pre cut shapes and sizes, so just search what you are looking for.
These are what I bought – https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/20-x-4cm-Assorted-Mermaids-Unicorns-Laser-MDF-Wood-Craft-Embellishments-Shapes/352774594581?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
