Pinecone Penguin ornament

This year my son is upgrading from a little tree in his room to a full size one. we like to decorate his tree in handmade decorations and we don’t have a huge amount from last Christmas so we’ve started crafting extra early this year. We decided we wanted to make something Penguin and i’m chuffed with how cute this little pinecone penguin ornament turned out. We will definitely be going pine cone hunting again, just so we can make more of these cuties for the tree and for gifts from my little person to family!

You will need

1 Pinecone
White paint
Paintbrush
1 Black Pom Pom
Small piece of black. yellow and orange card
2 Googly eyes
Ribbon
Glue gun or Pva glue.

To start making your penguin, take your white paint and brush it over the edges of your pinecone. Once dry, use glue to attach your black Pom Pom to the top of your pinecone – this will be his head!

To make your penguin’s face simply glue to your Pom Pom two googly eyes and a folded yellow diamond shape for the beak.

Next, take your black card and cut out two wing shapes. From your orange card cut out two little feet. Now glue all the pieces into place.

Your penguin is now finished! if you wish to hang your penguin as a decoration then check out the next step.

To be able to hang your penguin ornament; cut a length of ribbon, fold it in half and tie a knot. Use a hot glue gun or a generous amount of PVA glue to attach the ribbon in one of the gaps at the back of your penguin.

And that’s it! Your super simple pinecone penguin ornament is finished! How sweet do these look! I really do love penguins!
