How gorgeous are these DIY Unicorn Easter Eggs? Such a super cute and simple Easter egg craft project, perfect for any unicorn lovers out there. Plus, unlike the typical Easter egg activity of dying them colours, this DIY is totally mess-free. With a little paper, some sharpies and a little time you can have a blessing of Unicorns (yep, a blessing is their collective noun).

How to make DIY Unicorn Easter Eggs
Wash, clean and dry the egg. Use a pencil to draw the eyes and lip of the unicorn on the egg. Keep it simple.
Carefully draw over the traced pencil patterns with a black sharpie. Use a pink highlighter pen to create 2 blush patterns on both cheeks of the unicorn egg.
Use coloured craft papers to create rolled rose – cut a spiral and roll it from its open end towards the centre and then glue the roll with the centre! Cut small leaf patterns from green craft paper.
Cut a strip of white paper (or match with the colour of the egg). Glue the flowers and leaves on the strip, and keep the items adjacent (flowers and leaves).
Take the bundle of the craft wire and create a small loop at its open end. Wind the wire around the loop until it reaches near the radius of the egg. Cut off the wire from the bundle once you’re done winding it.
Keep the coiled wire on a flat surface and hold the centre of it with your thumb. Use the other hand to pull the outer coils upwards. This will be the egg stands.
Use a golden glossy craft paper to create a small horn; the size of the horn would depend on the size of the egg.
Glue the horn on the top side of the egg. Glue both open ends of the floral strip from step 4 and place it on the top end of the unicorn egg (this will be the garland). Cut 2 ear patterns and glue them on both sides of the horn. And finally, place the egg on the stand. You can also glue the egg onto the stand.
