List of Tools and Materials for the DIY Unicorn Easter Egg
- Plastic / foam decorative Easter eggs
- Black permanent marker
- Strong paper
- Duct tape or washi tape of matching color with your egg
- Another duct tape or washi tape (for decorating the horn)
- Slim washi tape
- A paper cupcake pan
- Regular tape
- Double-sided tape
If you use decorative eggs with ribbon loops like I did, you can also hang your unicorn Easter egg.
1. Cut the Unicorn’s Ears of Duct Tape.
Take the duct tape of matching color with your egg. Cut two triangle shaped pieces of the duct tape.
Fold a triangle into an ear, but leave some tape for attaching it to the egg.
Attach the duct tape ears to the egg with duct tape.
2. Make a Unicorn Horn out of Strong Paper and Washi Tape.
Next, we are going to make the unicorn´s horn. Cut a triangle shaped piece of the strong paper, and roll the triangle into a horn shape. Attach the rolled horn with regular tape.
Decorate the horn with washi tape by rolling the washi tape around the horn.
Use the same washi tape for attaching the horn to the egg. It doesn’t matter that the washi tape is showing, because we are going to cover it with the ribbon later.
3. Make a Ribbon out of the Cupcake Pan and Slim Washi Tape.
A paper cupcake pan is an excellent material for the ribbon. Cut two pieces of the side of the cupcake pan. The sides of a cupcake pan have the small ”waves”, which make it perfect for the ribbon.
Fold the pieces you cut into two fan shapes, and combine the ”fans” into a ribbon. Tie them together in the middle by wrapping the slim washi tape around the connecting point.
When the ribbon is ready, cut a small piece of double-sided tape. Attach the ribbon to the egg, in front of the horn, with the double-sided tape. Now, the ribbon covers the washi tape you used for attaching the horn.
4. Draw Eyes for the Unicorn Egg.
The last step is drawing eyes for the unicorn egg. Use the black permanent marker for this.
You can draw ”sleepy” eyes or happy eyes. Draw two arches on either side of the unicorn egg’s face in a desired place. Then, draw eyelashes.
