Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we LOVE to share unicorn crafts and fun. My daughter and I love to read stories about the mono-horned beauties and recently, we’ve been writing our own. They’re on stapled-together construction paper and we’re having such a great time.

It seems that each week, we’re doing a craft or making a gift for someone with a unicorn theme, so I know we’re not the only ones who adore them. Our latest unicorn project

How to Make Paper Flowers 

You can buy paper or fabric flowers (click the supplies link below) or you can make them. My daughter and I followed this tutorial for paper carnations for a different project and it was very easy to follow. I like they would look perfect on a unicorn headband!

Tips for This Fun DIY Unicorn Party Favor Craft 

If you happen to be making this for a unicorn party OR if you are making more than one, here are a few tips we wanted to share. 

  • Don’t make it! Put all the component into an organza bag and give it away as a unicorn party favor idea. Unicorn + Craft + At Someone Else’s House = Expert Level Party Planning
  • If you have many to make, buy the flowers and cut pieces of marabou feathers in advance.
  • Preassemble the components (horn and ears) to give them time to set.
