Minecraft has a lot of items, tools and weapons that players can craft and use to survive the in-game world, but Minecraft isn’t just about digging tunnels and fighting off mobs. The game has several fun elements to it as well that the players can use to goof around with their friends.

In this article, we’re talking about how you can make a unicorn horn in Minecraft.

Minecraft Unicorns

Now to put it simply, there aren’t any unicorn horns in Minecraft yet. However, you can give yourself headgear resembling a unicorn’s horn using a Minecraft command.

/replaceitem entity @p slot.armor.head minecraft:end_rod

The command mentioned above will replace whatever helmet you’re wearing with an end rod, which is a rod protruding out of your character’s head, making it look like a unicorn.

Do keep in mind that this command only works in the Java edition. If you’re playing the Bedrock edition, you’re out of luck, at least for the time being, as the Bedrock edition doesn’t render blocks on the head. 

However, that doesn’t mean you’re out of things to wear on your head other than a helmet. Not only you can make yourself coloured helmets by dyeing a leather helmet with your dye of choice, but you can also craft and wear a carved pumpkin.

Wearing full armour, including the head, can go a long way.

A carved pumpkin does more than look cool. It also keeps endermen from chasing you whether you look at them or not. Something that’ll come in handy when you’re in the End world.

Other headgears include different types of helmets, all with varying durability points. You can craft helmets out of leather, iron, gold, diamond or netherite.
