(Inside: Instructions and supplies list for these amazing Unicorn Easter Eggs that are going to be the HIGHLIGHT of every Easter hunt ever. I’m serious here.)
Who doesn’t love unicorns?
There’s nothing I enjoy more than stumbling upon a craft involving my favorite mystical creature…With Easter right around the corner, these Unicorn Easter Eggs make a fabulous addition to my Easter basket–wait, my kid’s baskets…right.
And, bonus, this is the perfect Easter egg project for my messy little ones since this tutorial includes zero dye.
That’s right, keep those tabletops nice and dry while your kids have a blast making Unicorn Easter Eggs.
Just boil those eggs and have your kids glue away.
It doesn’t get easier than that.
PS ~ Like the “Egg Stands”? Plastic shot glasses filled with Easter grass. You’re welcome.
And also, if you dig this project, you totally need to check out this ridiculously cute idea for Easter Rice Krispie Treat Pops. Or if you just need another way to decorate eggs that isn’t going to suck, check out my Shaving Cream Easter Egg dying idea!
Unicorn Easter Eggs
Supplies for Your Unicorn Easter Eggs
- Boiled Eggs
- A Sheet of Gold Paper (You can always print to avoid the craft store!)
- A Sheet of Pink Paper
- Black Sharpie
- Paper Flowers ( These were purchased at the Dollar Tree)
How to Make Your Unicorn Easter Eggs
- Boil your eggs and cool completely. You don’t want anyone burning their hands on a hot egg.
- Cut your sheet of gold paper into rectangles.
- Take your gold paper rectangles and wrap really tight into a cone to create a unicorn horn. When you get your gold paper rectangle to resemble a unicorn horn, glue the edge together with your glue.
- Trim your unicorn horn to the desired height. (tip ~ you will want your unicorn horn to be slightly taller than you would think. The paper flowers will cover some of the horn! You want that horn visible.)
- Take your pink paper and cut out pink circles for cheeks! If you have a hole punch, you can always use that instead of scissors to make those perfect circles.
- Once your unicorn horns have dried, glue your horn on the top of the egg with your glue.
- Next glue your paper flowers onto the egg.
- After your unicorn horn and flowers have dried, draw your unicorn eyes and eyelashes on your eggs. I suggest practicing on a blank piece of paper to prefect your technique before drawing on the actual Unicorn Easter Egg since markers are permanent. You only get one shot!
- After you draw those fabulous eyes, it’s time to glue on those pink circle cheeks!
- Tad-a! You now have Unicorn Easter eggs! Definitely the most glamorous Easter Eggs that Easter Bunny will see!
