The Unicorn Yarn Bowl is a practical and magical project for those who love to knit or crochet! This artistic accoutrement makes working with yarn a breeze, and when not in use, the fantastical unicorn design makes a great decoration! The bowl itself is simply the unicorn’s head with ears projecting from the side and a short swirling horn jutting out the front! Below the horn are the curves of two eye lines, and on the back is a slot and two holes for multiple strands of yarn!
The unicorn is a mythological creature whose history can be traced to early Mesopatamian artwork, ancient myths in China and India, Greek literature, and even the Bible! Some historians have speculated that the unicorn is simply an Indian or African Rhinoceros, but the image of the horned horse lives on!
Since we do not know what an actual unicorn would look like, your color palette and design for the Unicorn Yarn Bowl is limitless! Of course, unicorns in pop culture are often white horses with rainbow hair, bright eyes, and a golden horn! The beauty of this bisque piece is that it can be extremely simple and elegant, or an artist could lay out an array of patterns, colors, and even textures!
After painting, the Unicorn Yarn Bowl will be brushed or dipped in a clear glaze! This will seal the pottery, making it smooth and waterproof, and the clear glaze will make the paint colors pop!
So, whether you’re looking to get into knitting or crochet, or perhaps you know the artsy type that would love a tool like this, try out the Unicorn Yarn Bowl for your next pottery painting project! It makes a fun decoration for any home or the perfect gift for that creative person in your life!
