Unicorns and mermaids are having a moment right now, maybe because we are looking for a magical way to escape from the troubles of the real world. I know I have certainly had fun the past two weeks indulging in the world of mythical mermaids and unicorns. DIY unicorn horn bath soak is a fun gift for someone else who loves unicorns, or you can make a bunch of them and give them out as favors after a unicorn-themed event!
I started by putting my bath soak together. I used the same recipe and process that I used for my tie dye bath salts, but I used cosmetic pigments instead of food coloring. They are so much easier to use. I layered the different colors of bath soak in a cone-shaped favor bag and used a twist to make sure it was securely closed.
Next, I cut out some unicorn ears from unicorn themed scrapbook paper. I eyeballed the first set of ears, making sure they connected in the middle, then used it as a template for the other favors. I simply taped the ears in place on the back of the treat bag.
It took me a while to figure out a good way to hide the twist tie on the treat bag, then it dawned on me. Colorful unicorn ribbon hair! I am likely in the only profession where “COLORFUL UNICORN RIBBON HAIR!” is a useful epiphany to have.
I tied lengths of a few pastel grosgrain ribbons around the twist tie to represent the unicorn’s colorful mane. I am an adult and these are things I do with my time.
Finally, I cut the excess treat bag plastic away to finish off the party favors.
When guests return home from the party, they can empty the bath soak into their bathwater to add pretty unicorn color to the water.
