Turn a penguin into a cute tree ornament! These adorable arctic creatures will add cute cheer to your Christmas tree this year and require just a few basic materials to make.

Penguin Ornament Craft – Materials

Pine cones
– Black and yellow felt
– Black and white craft paint
– Paint brush
– Pencil
– 1″ wooden beads
– String or twine
– Hot glue


Step 1. Paint the tips of your pine cones white.

Step 2. Paint your wooden beads white – give them at least two coats. Allow to dry. Then draw the penguin’s head and eyes in pencil. Paint those in black.

Step 3. Cut out pieces of black felt for the wings and yellow felt for the feet. Tear drop shape – long for the wings, short for the feet. Hot glue those on your pine cones. Also cut a small triangle for the beak, hot glue that on the wooden bead.

Step 4. Thread a piece of twine through your bead and secure the end with a large knot. Hot glue your bead to the pine cone. You’re done!

Aren’t these the cutest penguins you’ve ever seen? You can prop them along with other ornaments to create a fun winter scene.
