It's unicorn season! Last year we 3D printed a unicorn horn, this year we made it simpler! Redesigned in Fusion 360, this unicorn horn features a spiral design and tabs for sewing onto garments such as hats, hoodies and other headware. This unicorn horn lights up and features a UV Purple LED, so it's magical as it is whimsical.

This project is as simple as it gets! There's no micro-controller or programming required. The circuit is just an LED, a JST breakout with on/off switch and a battery - That's it! If this is your first time using LEDs or soldering wires, this is the project for you!

If you don't have access to a 3D printer, you could try sending the design file to a service like 3DHubs.com - local 3D printer operators can print and ship to you directly! If you want hands on experience, consider visiting a local Maker/Hacker Space (just search on google!).
