17 Easy and Adorable Unicorn Valentine Box Ideas
When our 10-year old announced she wanted a unicorn valentine box this year for her Valentine party, my mouth said, “OK.” And as soon as she smiled and walked out of the room, I was left alone thinking, “oh great, a unicorn box. That should only take us 17 hours to figure out.”
What happened to the good old days when you took a brown paper bag into school, scrawled your name across it with a broken crayon, and called it a day?

Luckily though, I have a Pinterest account. A mom’s secret weapon against all things sounding overly-crafty and complicated. In less than the time it took the one lone tear to fall down my cheek while dreading the valentine unicorn crafting marathon, I had found 17 amazing unicorn valentine box ideas.
So if your little decided they wanted a unicorn valentine box this year, too, well then you’ve found not only a sympathetic ear here, but some fab ideas to save you as well.
1.) Alice & Lois
One of my favorites on this list, this unicorn valentine box made by Alice & Lois is basic without looking that way. It’s quick to construct and requires only basic materials your probably already have at home.
2.) Brit + Co.
Brit + Co has a quick video to show you how to make an adorable DIY unicorn valentine box. Check it out below:
Decoart has comprehensive step by step instructions for creating their version, which is a little more complicated than some others but also is made with wood so that it’s longer lasting than a typical Valentine class party box.
I like this version because they take a shortcut by using an inexpensive unicorn kit. If you’re looking for one of the quickest versions of this project, go for this one! The caveat is that it will require a bit of pre-planning because you’ll need to buy the kit online and make sure it arrives in time to complete your project!
Want something a little outside the box? How about a mailbox? The Keeper of the Cheerios (whose blog name I happen to love, don’t you?) writes a very detailed tutorial to make a mailbox-variety unicorn creation.
6.) Design Dazzle
Toni at Design Dazzle will show you how to create an over the top, multi-level unicorn extravaganza of crafty valentine fun.
Complete with glittery ears and ribbon curled hair, here’s another sweet option to consider!
8.) Skip to my Lou
This is a darling unicorn valentine box, AND you can download the free printable elements you’ll need to complete it over at Skip to my Lou! Easy breezy. PLUS, if you REALLY want to go all in on the unicorn valentine theme, she has insanely adorable free printable unicorn valentines for you over there as well!
This is a unique take on a unicorn valentine box! It’s made from paper plates, and the instructions are super simple, so check it out!
10.) DIY Candy
Amy shows you how to craft this one using Duck Tape.
11.) Hello Wonderful
Leave it to Hello Wonderful to create such a masterpiece! Your kid walks into school with THIS unicorn box?! #showstopper
Of course, some of the big guys like BHG have their own versions of this popular holiday craft idea. This one is cute and simple to boot.
The ribbon tail is a cute touch, right?
14.) Passion for Savings
Add a cute crown of artificial flowers.
A 3-D nose and pom-pom embellishment are sweet additions.
16.) Real Simple
Real Simple’s version is large and in charge. Probably wouldn’t fit in your little’s backpack, but I’m guessing they’d love having this one to fill with Valentine cards.
17.) Craft Box Girls
Last but not least is this little sweetie, made with some felt fun.
18.) Party Alphabet
There you have it, Mama!
