Unicorn Party Cup Craft


  • Paper or Plastic Cup
  • Crayola Construction Paper
  • Crayola Bright Pop Cardstock Pad
  • Crayola Glitter Glue
  • Crayola Washable Glue


  1. Use the glitter glue to draw upside down eyes on the front of the cup. Keep the cup on it's side until the glue dries. 
  2. Cut a triangle for the unicorn horn from a piece of cardstock from the Bright Pop Pad
  3. Pick two colors of construction paper. Starting at the end of the paper start to cut a circle and instead of completely cutting out the circle, cut inward and keep cutting in a spiral direction until you get to the center of the circle. Clip the end of the spiral from the sheet. 
  4. Cut two more spirals like in step 2. 
  5. Starting at the end of one of the spirals start rolling inward. Add a little glue each time you go.  Once you get the flower rolled place glue on the end tab and glue to the bottom. Do the same thing for the other two spirals for a total of three small flowers.
  6. Glue the horn to the top of the cup and the three flowers over the horn. 
  7. Once the glue is dry fill the cups with a fun party treat!
