Wooden Penguin Ornament

Seriously you guys, this Wooden Penguin Ornament is far too adorable for words!  My son Isaiah came up with this idea and I can’t wait to share the easy, peasy tutorial with you.

Gah!  He’s so cute!!  In our enthusiasm to create all sorts of fun things with a pile of wood slices we had (see these Reindeer, Spiders, Pumpkins and Apples) Isaiah came up with this little penguin ornament.  I simply cannot take any other the inspirational credit there.  That kid loves a good craft and is always game for getting messy when the craft supplies come out!

This is truly a simple craft to create!  Most of our supplies can be found in your craft room I am sure!  And if you don’t have a slice of wood, don’t worry!, just use a round of cardboard or card stock instead!  You could actually just use acrylic paint to create our entire penguin look if you wanted.  I like a bit of texture and dimension added to this project.

Materials:

2.5″ slice of wood

Black acrylic paint

White acrylic paint

Paint brush

Scrap red and orange paper

Googlie eyes

Twine

Glue

Instructions:

Step 1.  Paint the slice of wood black, add a belly with white acrylic paint.

Step 2.  Cut out an orange nose, glue it on.

Step 3.  Cut out a red tie, glue it on.

Step 4.  Glue on googlie eyes.

Step 5.  Tie with a piece of twine to hang.

 

Watch the how to video for step by step instructions.

This would be cute hanging on the Christmas tree, added to the packaging on a gift or hung from a bottle of wine as a teacher present.  Now there’s an idea!  Am I right teachers?!  What would you do with one of these adorable Wooden Penguin Ornaments?  Do you have any other ideas for what we could make with a bunch of wooden slices?
