We have the printable template and the exact steps to follow to create these darling giveaways your party guests will love!
DIY Unicorn Party Favor Bags
Let’s be honest… one of the best parts of a party as a kid was rummaging through your goodie bag on the way home, right! And parents everywhere are still going all out to create the perfect party favors for their child’s birthday party. That’s why we want to make it easy for you to create a darling goodie bag your guests will adore!
I love this little unicorn because she is so versatile! She can be an ornament at Christmastime, a fancy decoration for a thank you card or birthday invitation, she can be attached to a Happy Birthday banner, or like we’re talking about here, she can dress up your party favor bags!
Ready to get started? Okay, let’s dive right in…
First, you’ll want to gather your supplies – and remember to multiply what’s listed below by the number of guests at your party. Here’s your supply list for the unicorn favor bags:
- Craft paper – green, white, ivory, light pink, dark pink, purple, light blue, dark blue, orange and gold (or use your choice of colors to match your party theme)
- Printable template with unicorn pieces (download this from our Party Printable Library)
- Small beads
- Pencil or pen – for tracing the template
- Craft glue or glue stick
- Golden craft glitter
- Yarn or string (optional)
- Black Sharpie
- Favor bags in your choice of color (we used a light blue in this example)
All the steps for creating the unicorn to attach to your favor bags can be found in our DIY Unicorn Ornament Tutorial.
You’ll follow Steps 1 – 10 in the tutorial and then omit Step 11 (you don’t need to add string to turn your unicorn into an ornament) and finish with Step 12.
The last step is to glue the back of your unicorn to your favor bag in your desired location. I’d recommend folding the top of your bag down once or twice, depending on how you’d like to close it, and then centering your unicorn on the bag, similar to what we’ve done here.
If you’d like to take the extra step of using some yarn or string to more securely close the bags like you can see in the pictures, simply use a hole punch on the folded portion of the bag and weave your string in to tie the favor bag closed.
