I have a little girl who is obsessed with Unicorns, and I think just about every little girl in her class at school is just as obsessed as she is. When I saw Unicorn Magic Snack Pack Pudding Cups at Walmart I knew she would love them as a treat. They will be especially fun with school starting soon for an after school snack. And to go along with the special unicorn puddings I made her a cute unicorn headband to wear.




I mean, when your pudding "tastes like joy and rainbow sparkles" and is made with "fairy dust and princess kisses" what 7 year old girl wouldn't want it. Dressing up like a unicorn and eating a unicorn snack will make any day extra magical. And if your kid isn't that into unicorns they have a dragon version, Dragon Treasure Snack Pack Pudding Cups as well. Click on the picture above to find out where you can get some. You can also check out the Snack Pack website for fun Dragon and Unicorn themed recipes and printable games.


I have wanted to try crocheting a unicorn headband for a while. I made a unicorn hat a couple of years ago and my daughter wore it all the time so that she could be a unicorn. Hats are great when it is cold outside but not so nice during warmer times of the year. A few months ago she was given a unicorn headband as a gift when she was sick. She wore that thing everyday until it literally fell apart. 


I figured I could make something similar and probably even sturdier and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to do it. 


The headband is crocheted in a few separate pieces and then sewn together around a wide headband. Even though there is some sewing involved the pieces are small enough that it doesn't take too long to make all of the pieces and put it together. 


She loved it just as much as I hoped she would. 

How to Crochet a Unicorn Headband


You will need:


  • Worsted weight yarn in white, pale yellow, light pink, and colors you want for the flowers (I used a bright pink and purple)
  • G crochet hook
  • small amount of stuffing
  • Wide headband (the kind that are about 1" wide at the widest part, you just don't want the really skinny kind, I bought a 3 pack of fabric covered Goody brand at Walmart, the color is not too important since most of what will be seen will be covered with yarn)
  • yarn needle
  • scissors

Instructions:

Make the base for your headband out of white yarn. This is the part that will wrap around the headband and that you will sew all of the pieces on to.
