DIY Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino Costume

Hello and welcome back! I’m so excited to be sharing today’s tutorial with you guys.

October is finally upon us and I’m sure you have noticed all of the seasonal decorations in stores. All my favorite craft stores are all stocked up with Halloween, fall, and Christmas decorations. All these decorations have me super pumped for all the fun the upcoming months will bring.

This year for Halloween, I thought it would be fun to create the ever popular Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino – in costume form!

Here is what you will need for this project:

  • Empty paper towel roll (for the straw)
  • Headband
  • Green paint and paint brush
  • Fuchsia Dress (I found mine on Amazon. I normally wear a size Small, but I checked the reviews and saw it ran smaller, so I ordered a Medium and it fit perfectly!)
  • Coffee filters
  • Starbucks logo
  • Hot glue gun
  • Pink and Aqua Sequins
  • Aqua and white colored felt (I found mine at Joann)
  • Fabric glue
  • Scissors


Here is the logo I used, the dimensions are perfect for printing!

To make the straw headband, paint the empty paper towel roll green and cut the roll to make the straw shorter.

Next it’s time to glue the paper towel roll to the headband. I added two dots of hot glue to the edge of the paper towel roll, where it would line up with the headband. I attached the headband to the paper towel roll and let it dry.

To add some stability, trace the edge of the paper towel roll on a piece of white felt and cut it out. Hot glue around the end of the paper towel roll and on the bottom of the headband.

Once the felt has been glued, the headband should look something like this:

I pulled up a picture of the Unicorn Frappuccino on my phone and cut out the squiggly stripe out of the blue felt. This does not have to be perfect, and you do not need a template! Use some fabric glue or hot glue to secure the felt in place.

Cut out the Starbucks logo. I traced the logo on a piece of white felt and cut it out. This made the paper more sturdy. Glue it down with fabric or hot glue. I cut out a smaller piece of white felt to go around the neckline. (This is where the coffee filters will go for the whipped cream). I used some pins to hold the felt in place while I made sure the placement was exactly how I wanted it.

To make the ruffles for the whipped cream, take 2-3 coffee filters and bunch them in the middle. Add some hot glue to the back of the coffee filters and stick it on the white piece of felt. Repeat this process until the white piece of felt is no longer visible. You can separate the filters once they are glued down to fluff them up a bit.

Once all the coffee filters have been glued down, it should look something like this:

To recreate the pink and blue sugar on the whipped cream, I decided to use some colored sequins I picked up at Joann. This part is totally optional and you could use glitter as an alternative, but I decided I didn’t want the mess.

Hot glue the pink and blue sequins toward the edges of the coffee filters.

Secure the white felt with the coffee filters toward the neckline of the dress with either fabric glue or hot glue and you are all set! I used my Jaclyn Hill x Morphe eyeshadow palette on my eyes to take this look to the next level. You can find my booties here. I talked about my hair extensions here.
