I think I have written about this before, but Grace is obsessed with unicorns. She had a unicorn birthday party this year, and about 3/4 of her clothing has at least one unicorn on it. She is even getting unicorn leggings and a Pusheen unicorn for Christmas. I have seen this super cute unicorn DIY ornaments all over Pinterest this year, and I knew we had to try them.
