A very simple tutorial on lightweight costume horns for those wishing to make them on a budget and with little time.

Finished horns: [link]

Note: This was written for an absolute beginner, so don't take offense to me explaining a lot of things.

Hello I would just love to say that your tutorial was very helpful and it helped me a lot in making my Nepeta and Aradia horns. Thank you very much!

Instead of covering it with carboard in step four, I made my horn a bit longer so i used a blanket stitch to close the red around the headband, then secured it with tacky glue.

dude thank you for this tutorial!!

i'm making condesce horns for a con next year and i wouldn't be able to handle her giant ass horns all day so plush ones seem a lot more reasonable!!! <3

Hey no problem!! I wish you luck at your con (and p.s. the horns double as pillows depending on size, haha) xD

Thanks dude. You don't know how helpful this is. I really needed to know how to make plush horns for this Karkat hoodie that I'm working on.

this is really interesting because a while ago I was trying to make this nepeta hat and instead of making horns out of clay and cutting holes in the hat I wanted to make plush horns and just pin them on (so the hat can be used as human stuck as well) but i looked around and couldn't find any tutorials for some reason?? anyways I ended up doing a LOT of math to figure out how to make these goddanng horns and it was hard and I wish I had found this earlier ^^

Thank you for your comment :) I hope this is helpful to you. It can be applied to any kind of horns too. I think a homestuck hat would be so cool :0
