Have you snapped up unicorn hair, unicorn makeup, and unicorn T-shirts? If so, you’re going to love what I’ve got in store for you today … a video tutorial that shows you how you can make unicorn eggs for Easter!
So, about a year ago, I bought my first-ever wig, which has ombre shades of pink, blue and purple. It was sold online as a “unicorn wig.” Color me out-of-the-loop … I had no idea what made it a “unicorn” anything.
I’d actually purchased it 1-because I had finally accepted that dying my hair in pastels wasn’t a realistic goal, and 2-I wanted pastel hair to complement some of my outdated-but-fabulous Harajuku fashions.
Since then, of course, I’ve finally caught up with the fad. Unicorns, rainbows, and glitter are everywhere nowadays, and you know what? I love it! It’s become a lot easier to find accessories, makeup and so on that complements some of my clothes, even if those clothes went out of style in Japan some time ago. What used to be big in Japan now appears to be big in the West.
Anyway, naturally this year I had to make unicorn eggs for Easter. I mean, Easter and the unicorn trend were pretty much made for each other, am I right? Both share the same pastel color palette and the playful sense of cuteness and fun.
For this project, you will need eggs (of course), glitter, and cardstock or paper. I used white eggs and cardstock, but you can go with any appropriately pastel hue you want. You then will need some faux flowers to complement the eggs. Obviously, pastel colors are a good choice, but you don’t necessarily need to go with them. Bright colors can also work.
I used gold glitter to decorate the unicorn horns, but any color of glitter works great. Glitter by definition is always perfect for any unicorn craft. You literally can’t go wrong, so go wild.

It’s amazing how easy and fun it is to craft unicorn eggs, isn’t it? This is a great craft for all ages (just remember to supervise kids with the hot glue). Wherever you display these eggs, they will add some extra sparkle and fun to Easter this year.
Since I am writing about the unicorn trend today, I do want to take a moment to address a current issue involving this trend. While a lot of people love the unicorn trend, if you sport unicorn T-shirts or hair or accessories, you’ve probably encountered at least some of the backlash—folks who say that the unicorn trend infantilizes us, and that we need to “grow up.”
But you know what? The only people who are infantilizing anyone are those telling others how to look, what to love, and what to do. As an adult, being an adult means doing what you want, and letting others do the same.
These folks who let other people tell them what to do and think they can do the same to you are the ones who really need to grow up.
So be proud of your unicorn eggs and all your other unicorn fashions and items. All that matters in life is being yourself and letting your creativity soar.

I totally agree with you about people saying that unicorn things are infantile. Nothing could be further from the truth! Besides, as you said, part of being an adult is doing your own thing and letting others do their thing. I've also heard comments about how women of a certain age shouldn't wear Hello Kitty stuff because that makes them look childish. That's also bull! I will be 60 in September, and often wear a Hello Kitty sweater to work. Guess what - I have received lots of compliments on this! I love Hello Kitty and I think it shows. However, I won't wear some kids things because I am not into them Such as anything from the movie Frozen. I am one of the few people who thought that Frozen was okay, but highly overrated. I'll let those who can't wait for the Frozen sequel (due out later this year) wear these things!
I've tried to steer clear of the whole unicorn thing going on but it finally happened to me as well. I have three daughters so I'm surprised it took so long but anyway, I just wanted to say thanks for the cute ideas. We have a unicorn birthday party to throw for our baby, turning 7 next month so I'm looking for budget-friendly ideas and diy's. I'm happy I received the unicorn easter egg idea in my email today. Thanks!! :))
