Preparing your Unicorn DIY Egg Parts
Either blow out your white eggs and let them dry completely, or paint the wooden eggs white. This will take 1-2 coats. Allow the paint to dry completely.
Download the unicorn template and print out. Cut the template out.
Trace the round circle onto gold glitter cardstock. Cut out. Cut the circle in half.
Roll the circle up into a horn shape. Secure the horn shape with a bit of hot glue.
Trace the ear and leaf template onto cardstock. Cut the pieces out.
Assembling your Unicorn Eggs
Glue the pink inner ear onto the white portion of the ear. Set aside.
Glue the unicorn horn on the very top of the egg. (don’t forget that the top of the egg is more narrow than the bottom)
Glue an ear on each side of the horn.
Decorate the unicorn egg by gluing on paper flowers and the green leaves that you cut.
Adding your final DIY Unicorn Egg details
Use a pencil to draw on some sassy eyes and lashes.
Once you are happy with the eyes, trace over them with black paint marker or a black permanent marker.
Your unicorn eggs are finished and quite magical!
