Cut approx 25 pieces of Pink(Baby Bernat Light 3) at approx. 4 inches ea. Attach to the horses mane using larks knot using 2 pieces at a time, placing in ea ss along mane, and a few between the ears(bangs), trim to desired length.

I then added pink sparkly puffy fabric paint in the ears, for the nostril, mouth and jaw line(pushing the mane out of the way). Allow to dry. Sew in a small button eye.
