Make a Unicorn Horn

One of the most popular parties I’ve posted was Carly’s adorable unicorn birthday party. All the kids adorned these simple and pretty unicorn hats that were a huge hit! I’ve gotten so many requests for a tutorial on how to make them and here it is. Your little ones will be over the moon, or rainbow, or whatever it is unicorns fly over when wearing these sweet party hats.

Here is a basic party hat template to use as a starter for the unicorn horn. Save and print the unicorn horn download right here for an easy starting place.

To make the unicorn horn party hat – Cut out the template and place over the backside of foam paper. Trace outline to create imprint, then trace imprint for easy cutting. After cutting out the shape, start rolling the foam to create the cone shape. Cut a strip of the backing paper off so you can adhere cone (leave the remaining paper on back to prevent kids’ hair from sticking!). Reinforce with glue gun. Glue metallic wired ribbon into point of cone, wrap around and secure at base. Then place a ribbon between foam paper and backing, glue to secure.
