My 10-year-old daughter loves all things unicorn, so I’ve been thinking about making something like this unicorn headband for a while now. When I learned about the new Limited Edition Unicorn Magic Snack Packs at Walmart, I got inspired to finally make these with her.
I am in LOVE with how this project turned out, and am excited to share with you how to make a unicorn headband for your little unicorn fan. I’ve even included a printable pattern, making this project super easy and loads of fun.
If you haven’t tried the Limited Edition Unicorn Magic Snack Pack Pudding Cups yet, head to the snack aisle at Walmart now. These yummy unicorn-inspired pudding cups are flying off the shelves. I tend to get a little carried away and “might” have left only one on the shelf when I last popped into my local Walmart.
You can’t miss them! The beautiful blue and pink Snack Packs and colorful packaging really stand out.
My unicorn loving little girl is crazy for this treat!
Plus, your kids are going to flip over the surprise tattoos that are included! You’ll love that Unicorn Magic Snack Pack Pudding Cups contain no high-fructose corn syrup and have zero grams of trans fat per serving.
How to Make a Unicorn Headband
I’ve seen a few unicorn headband projects that require sewing and stuffing the horn. I wanted to keep this project very simple, so I opted to use glitter foam sheets and glue instead. Plus, I’m kind of obsessed with glitter foam sheets at the moment and am in LOVE with the rose gold sheets.
We decorated our headbands with paper flowers from the craft store. You could optionally use silk flowers, pom poms, or anything you like that is colorful and easy to adhere with glue.
My daughter is ten and does a lot of crafting with me, so I used a glue gun for this project. If you have younger children, I recommend using a good, tacky craft glue instead.
To make this project even more simple for you, I’ve included a template below that you can download and print for the unicorn horn and ears.
glitter foam sheet, for the horn
2 foam sheets in contrasting colors, for the ears
assorted paper flowers
glue gun or craft glue
Begin by downloading and printing this unicorn headband template for the horn and ears.
Use the pattern to cut out the horn and ears.
Roll the horn and seam the edge with glue.
Glue the open end of the horn onto the headband, gently pressing down, until the glue dries. The bottom of the horn will be slightly flattened, but you’ll cover this with flowers.
Glue the inner ear onto the outer ear. Then, glue the bottom edge of the ears onto the headband, on opposite sides of the horn.
To cover the rough edges, glue some flowers onto the headband, along with any additional embellishments you choose.
Have a snack break.
