A beautiful love affair started when I was on Instagram and up popped the most gorgeous garland from BearsleyandBumski on my “Explore Posts” page. I probably shouldn’t have been too shocked, considering Instagram curates those to photos you typically like and interact on, and let’s face it, I love unicorns and mermaids. I ended up following her on Instagram and purchasing one of her gorgeous keychains for myself. She then asked me if I’d be interested in receiving a Unicorn Tail Garland and showing it and I said “HELL YES!” I was going to purchase one for my home office/makeup room and believe me, she has a permanent customer in me now anyway. This particular garland is called Betty Beaut, and this all came about after I described the color and design of my room for her. She knew exactly what I wanted without me having to say much and when it came in the mail over the weekend, I ended up petting the garland for awhile before hanging it up. It is that gorgeous.
You do not want to miss the photo spam in this post. It’s honestly some of my favorite photography that I’ve done and it really has nothing to do with my camera or skills whatsoever, but the product being so gorgeous. These garlands are top-of-the-line vibrant, whimsical, and magical in every way, shape, and form. It’s not hard to make these look absolutely breathtaking, but let me quit rambling and show you how incredible my home office/makeup room looks now!
What is a Unicorn Tail? Dee, the owner of the shop, is basically this amazingly creative, vibrant, fiery woman who makes beautiful things. There is no other way to put it. She loves all things unusual and kitschy, and I am the exact same way, so I knew we’d be friends. She makes these garlands out of tissue paper and twists the tops up into “unicorn twists.” Each tassel is about 12″ and it is an eco-friendly way to decorate because you’re repurposing tissue paper!
I’ve seen people use these for their craft room, home office, vanity area, mantles, baby nursery, dining room table, and kitchen. The possibilities are endless. Anywhere you can stick a tack or hang the end of the twine, the Unicorn Tails can go! It’s such a fantastic solution to buying garland or decor at the store that you’ll most likely end up tossing out or losing after a few years.
The sheer amount of boxes I have stuffed with decorations that are now crushed, ripped, and messed up is crazy. I find myself replacing my decor often, particularly for the major holiday season, like Christmas. Wouldn’t it be nice to have an eco-friendly option that is unique and functional? You can easily twist these garlands back together in one lump (it kind of looks like a tissue paper wig when you do), and you won’t have to deal with sloppy storage anymore.
There is a Unicorn Tail for everyone and anyone. Dee lists ones for special occasions like this Witches Brew one for Halloween, which I already know I have to buy because I’m Halloween crazy. She also has ones with shapes like Mermaid Adventure, and Goodnight Wall Candy, which would be just divine in a baby nursery.
Mine is the Betty Beaut Unicorn Tail, which has a gorgeous, eclectic combination of shades and patterns in it. I told Dee that my room was a true blue-lavender and mostly had black and white accents. I wanted some color up in here, and this is what she came up with. I genuinely couldn’t have chosen anything prettier. It matches my room perfectly, yet it stands out enough that it’s the first thing people notice when they enter.
Mine are placed against the wall when you first walk into my home office. This is where I have long icicle lights hanging as a background for when I am filming YouTube videos or if I just feel like being in a twinkling wonderland that night. Please note that the Unicorn Tails are made of tissue paper, so if you have lights that get hot, you shouldn’t hang these near them. My lights do not even get warm and I never leave them on for extended periods of time anyway. Since I knew it was safe to hang them up with my lights, I went for it. It’s the most magical combination ever. I don’t believe I’ve had a spot in my home or room that I’ve ever loved so much, not even as a kid.
The colors and patterns are vibrant and you can “fluff” your Unicorn Tails up when you receive them. This makes them look like big pom-pom’s and they look even cuter.
I can wholeheartedly say that my home office is my favorite place to be, especially at night when I turn my twinkle lights on. It just illuminates my Unicorn Tails perfectly and looks really unique and special, like a storybook wonderland. If you’re into handmade, eco-friendly goods that are one-of-a-kind, you definitely have to get one for yourself.
BearsleyandBumski Unicorn Tails are available through their Etsy shop online here. My particular Unicorn Tail is the “Betty Beaut” and retails for $20.00USD. Each regular Unicorn Tail has 12 tassels on it, but they also make “short and fat” ones for $10.00USD as well, which have 6 tassels. I already have several spots in my house that I am considering other Unicorn Tails for, including above my bed, along the kitchen track lighting, and even a “short and fat” one for above my vanity area in my home office. You can never have too many Unicorn Tails!
The shop offers FREE SHIPPING with any purchase over $30.00USD, using code UNICORNTAILS. They also have other products like sassy notebooks and plenty more. Dee’s entire shop is one massive eye candy buzz, so go take a look!
Psst…she is also a genuinely great person, so go follow her on social media too:
