1. Golden Unicorn Cupcakes

If you’re looking for a fun way to decorate cupcakes, use sugar cones as unicorn “horns”. Just pick up your cupcake mix and vanilla frosting from Dollar Tree, and then grab cones and shimmer spray at your local grocery store.

To make these Unicorn cupcakes:

  • Let them dry for a few minutes, then place cones on top of frosted cupcakes.
  • Add flowers using colored frosting using food coloring around the bottom of each cone.

2. Easy Unicorn Goody Bags

How adorable are these unicorn birthday party bags?! I love this clever idea of embellishing plain white paper bags. Dollar Tree carries these bags at just 3 for $1! Grab curly ribbon bows and faux flowers there too.

To make these Unicorn Goodie Bags:

  • Draw unicorn eyes using a black marker on the front of a plain white gift bag.
  • Glue curly ribbon to the top of the bag, along with a few faux flowers using a hot glue gun.

3. Unicorn Birthday Party Snacks

Make these fun unicorns out of plain white paper cups from Dollar Tree and clear, cone-shaped treat bags filled with mini marshmallows and mix in some twisted unicorn treats if desired! This was such a fun craft to make, and I loved how adorable they turned out!

To make these Unicorn Party Snacks: 

  • Turn a party cup upside down and draw unicorn eyes on the front using a black marker.
  • Glue a couple of pieces of curling ribbon to the top of the cup between the eyes.
  • Secure the bag shut with tape, and tape or glue it to the cup as the unicorn’s “horn”.
  • Cut ear shapes out of cardstock paper and color a pink detail inside each ear.
  • Glue one ear to each side of the cup, as shown.
