Take your popcorn to magical heights with this Unicorn Popcorn Box Tutorial #popcornboxparty2017
If you take a look at some of the blog posts I have done in the past few months you will notice there are a lot of posts about unicorns. I am a little unicorn obsessed right now! They are just so pretty and magical. Today I am sharing my Unicorn Popcorn Box Tutorial as part of Laura Kelly’s #PopcornBoxParty2017. There are tons of great ideas so be sure to check out the links at the bottom of the post for more popcorn box inspiration.
This is my second year participating in Laura’s Popcorn Box Party. Last year I made Poppy from Trolls because she is so stinkin cute! And pink. She’s very very pink and I like that a lot. One of this things I love most about this Popcorn Box Party is that we can let our creativity run wild. A lot of my fellow bloggers go with a Halloween theme because Laura includes a bunch of super cute Halloween candy and trim from awesome companies.
I do want to say thank you to all of our sponsors: Laura Kelly for hosting this fun party and sending out the box of goodies, Expressionery, Sizzix, Kunin for the felt, Oriental Trading Co for the popcorn, googly eyes, pencils, erasers, candy corn, and a pumpkin lollipop, and World Market for the popcorn boxes. Udderly Smooth also provided their amazing hand cream which is so perfect for this time of year. You can check out #udderlysmoothhalloween to see how some of my friends decorated their tube of hand cream. It’s pretty cute!
So, here is how I made Fleurette (that’s what I named this unicorn!) First, you want to make a template for the felt. Trace two sides on a piece of paper and cut. Make sure you cut a little longer on the edges so they wrap around the box. I actually forgot to do this which is why she ended up with a some bling. My edges didn’t quite come together.
I did a double layer of felt because I didn’t want to see the red stripes through it.
Hot glue the felt to your box.
I cut the ears out of felt and the horn out of gold glitter foam. The insides of the ears are from foam as well.
Glue the ears to the inside of the box and hot glued flowers I picked up at the dollar store.
Glue the horn too. I wanted the backside of the horn to be glittery too so I cut another piece and stuck them together.
I used a Sharpie to trace the outline of her eyes and then filled them in with puffy paint.
I had a bunch of crepe paper streamers left over from my other unicorn projects so I made a pastel rainbow mane and secured it on the inside with a little piece of felt.
Chocolate popcorn is always a hit and rainbow chocolate popcorn is even better! I popped the bag of popcorn from Oriental Trading and separated it into 5 piles. I then melted chocolate disks in small bowls and covered each pile individually with pink, blue, yellow, lime green, and purple.
I suggest doing one color at a time. I started with pink, added the sprinkles, and edible gold stars, and then moved onto blue. If you wait til the end to add sprinkles it will be too late…they won’t stick because the chocolate hardens pretty quickly.
You can see the tiny gold stars and sprinkles here.
I filled my unicorn with the rainbow chocolate popcorn and was ready to sit down with a glass of champagne and watch “This is Us”. Anyone else loving this show? I didn’t watch last season but am already completely sucked in!
