Make Your Easter Basket Magical With Unicorn Easter Eggs

Easter eggs are the best because they’re a blank canvas to create anything on them that your heart desires. In the past we’ve marbled eggs, turned them into birds, and even dressed them up as pop-stars! Today we are turning these eggs into one of our favorite mystical creatures — unicorns! Follow along in the tutorial below to create these magical eggs for your Easter basket.

Materials and Tools:


  1. Cut a small square of gold paper and roll into a cone. Secure in place and attach to the top of the egg using hot glue.
  2. Grab the ends of all colors of embroidery floss and wrap around your fingers about three times. Tie in a bundle and attach right under the unicorn horn. Use the small trimming to give the unicorn bangs around the horn.
  3. Use a Sharpie to create a face on your unicorn egg.

Create a gold horn by rolling a piece of gold paper and gluing it in place. Attach to the top of the egg.

Wrap all colorful strands of embroidery floss around your fingers and secure the bundle together with a knot. Hot glue the bundle right under the unicorn horn. Add small trimmings around the horn for unicorn bangs.

Use a Sharpie to give your unicorn egg some life :)
