Very nice.

An idea occurs to me that with nimble fingers, a thinner board, and a glue gun with a fine tip you could use a similar method for "copper" tubing on the cheap for Steampunk stuff.  Or anything that requires attractive-but-non-functional "flexible" tubing , really.  Or, if one was horribly clever, they could run flexline for air tubing through it for something... The possibilities are nicely endless.

Not my intention to hijack your tutorial, it's lovely on its own, it's just given me an idea of how to create more than just horns using the same general method.  I'll need to try it later.

First off, let me say this is such a clever idea.
Inspired me to make my horns using this method.

I documented my work as a DIY and also added & credited your tutorial in my blog. :)

I used a thin metal hairband (black) to put them on. You can make two little cuts at the base of the horns and put the hairband through them. (Not sure if I used the right words) 
And thank you for your comment! :)
