Create your cut design in Cricut Design Space or go directly to this project. I'm using cut design #M4A00BFC7 and a few other unicorn and basic shapes patterns free with Cricut Access.

crown cut outs

Assemble the crown by stapling one headband to the base of the unicorn crown on either side. Then fit the crown to the wearer and staple the unattached ends of the headband where they overlap. Let the kids embellish the unicorn crown using markers, stickers, glitter, etc.

wand cut outs

Assemble the wand by transferring one cut vinyl star to the center of one circular cardstock wand base. Since the cut vinyl is such a simple shape, you can skip the transfer paper and just use your hands to apply the vinyl. Let the kids sandwich a flat wood paint stick between the circles and glue in place using ordinary white glue. Allow to dry. Embellish the wand with curling ribbon or markers, stickers, etc. as desired.

balloon cut outs

Cut a piece of transfer tape slightly larger than the balloon transfer (unicorn face) and move the vinyl to the transfer tape from the vinyl carrier sheet. Wipe the surface of the balloon with rubbing alcohol and allow the dry. Use the transfer tape to apply your vinyl design to the inflated balloon surface. I like to cut up the transfer tape to apply the design in smaller sections for easier control. For example, you can apply only the ears first, then the horn, and finallly the eyes. Gently smooth out any bubbles. Carefully peel off the transfer tape, ensuring the vinyl adheres to the balloon.

  • Mylar balloons like this are perfect for vinyl decals. They're inexpensive at the dollar store, fairly flat on the face, and sturdy to handle.
  • Use small designs or work in sections, applying your design in small pieces for easier control.
  • Test on a scrap balloon: Practice your technique on a spare balloon before working on your final project.

Kids Coloring Page T-Shirts

kids coloring page t-shirt

Here's a cool party activity for kids - coloring their own T-shirts. All you need is a white T-shirt, black iron-on vinyl, Easy Press, and a Cricut Machine. We found a coloring page online, turned it into an SVG file, and used Design Space to cut it with the Cricut. After weeding the image, we pressed it onto the shirt with the Easy Press. With washable markers, the T-shirt can be washed and colored again!

Unicorn Treat Favors

Unicorn Treat Favors

We stumbled upon twisty suckers at Walmart and thought they'd make perfect unicorn horns. Using Cricut Print then Cut, we created cute party favors by uploading a unicorn image to Design Space, sizing it, and adding a backdrop with the offset feature. After printing and cutting, I attached the suckers using washi tape.
