Unicorn Cotton Candy Birthday Party!

 Unicorn Cotton Candy Party!
I just turned 35 and had the BEST party!!!
It was Unicorn themed!
 We decorated with yummy cotton candy because I got my own
Cotton Candy Machine for Christmas from my sister in law!
We made fun rainbow and Unicorn poop cupcakes too!
 Lots of sweet treats to eat!

Aren't these Unicorn Poop cupcakes just the best!?
 Here's my cupcake/treat trick!
I fill these little treat cups with just a few sweet treats...
 Then have the kids that come to the party can pick a cupcake
and put it right on top of the treats and carry it to their seat!
Easy peasy...stick a fork or spoon in there if you
 don't just eat with your hands!
 We had my rainbow flashing light going for added fun.
Lighting is so much fun!
 Lots of fun things to look at!
 I used a brick background from Lollipop Props
for the background.
I made a pom-pom garland...
I made a bunch of yo-yo paper fans...
Lights and Action!
Don't worry, I'll have tutorials for all of this in the days to come!
Paper yo-yo's are easy to make.
Just accordion fold pieces of paper, double them up and hot glue them in a circle shape.
Hot glue them to a round piece of paper on the backside and the front to get them
to hold their shape.
Then I used strips of foam core board and hot glued them across.
This way, it only needs to be hung from 2 places, instead of a command hook for each yo-yo.
 Makes the perfect swag backdrop with this brick background!
 Here's the fun with cotton candy!
It's big and fluffy and makes a great decoration.
I used FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam for the cotton candy displays.
I covered them in tissue paper and just stapled it loosely on the top.
 Then poked a hole into it with a small screwdriver...
and stick the cotton candy cone right inside!
 Gorgeous, full of colors and so much fun!
 I hung bags of cotton candy on a piece of twine with clothespins.
They were the take home favor.
Cotton Candy is awesome...one bag only has the equivalent to 1 tablespoon of sugar!
So as far as sweet treats go...it's great!
 It's party time!
 Even these cute Equestria Girl Mini's got in on it!
 Happy Birthday to me!!!
35 is fun!

Unicorn Horn Headbands!

Unicorn Horn Headbands!
You'll look just like Rarity or Princess Celestia
 with this easy Unicorn Horn Headband!
Here's the pattern.
Print it out if you want and cut them out...or just eyeball it.
Cut out 2 ears, one horn.
You will also need:
headband (I only use black metal headbands)
White felt circle
Gold decorative rope
Cotton balls
Scissors, hot glue/gun
Add a little hot glue at the base of the ears and pinch them together.
Reverse the second ear and repeat the gluing process.
Glue down the top and side of the horn felt.
Roll it over and press onto the felt.
Hot glue the gold rope inside the top.
Fill the horn with cotton...or cotton balls if you
can't find your cotton batting like me ;)
Fill it up so it is firm but not bulging.
Add hot glue around the base of the horn.

Press it onto your felt circle.
Swirl the rope down and around the horn, gluing periodically.
Now you have the ears and the horn ready for headband installation.
Just hot glue them right on.
The ears feel like they are going on pretty low...but try it on your
 head and mark with a sharpie where the ears would
 look best...then glue them there.
Glue on the horn....
Then take a needle and thread to make it more secure.
I think it would be fine just glued for a simple costume or Halloween...
but to really keep the horn secure...stitch it on.
Just lash it back and forth around the headband to keep it in place.
Same process on the ears.
Done!
Looks like the perfect headpiece for a fashionista like Rarity!
These are darling and would make great party
 favors for a My Little Pony themed Party!
Come back tomorrow for more pony themed fun!!!
