Who doesn’t love unicorns? They are all the rage right now, I can’t enter a store without seeing something unicorn themed that “I need” to buy for my daughter (really for me). So Unicorn Easter Eggs are obviously a must, right?
There is nothing I enjoy more than stumbling upon a craft involving my favorite mystical creature! With Easter right around the corner, these Unicorn Easter Eggs will make a fabulous addition to those Easter Baskets!
It is also the perfect Easter egg project for 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.
What you’ll need:
A Sheet of Gold Paper (You can always print to avoid the craft store!)
A Sheet of Pink Paper
First, boil your eggs, Once your eggs are boiled let them cool for awhile. You don’t want anyone burning their hands on a hot egg!
Next, cut your sheet of gold paper into rectangles.
Take your gold paper rectangles and wrap really tight 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. Remember that you’ll want your unicorn horn to be slightly taller than you would think because the paper flowers will cover some of the horn, and of course, 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 go a lot faster.
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 perfect your technique before drawing on the actual Unicorn Easter Egg since Sharpies are permanent. You only get one shot and this step really pulls your unicorn together!
After you draw those fabulous eyes, it’s time to glue on those pink circle cheeks!
Tad-a! You now have Unicorn Easter eggs! These are definitely the most glamorous Easter Eggs that the Easter Bunny will see!
Have a great Easter.
