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.
