The Christmas season is here and it’s time to pull out the decorations. Old-fashioned ornaments are just fine, but why not make a few of your own? These would make for an amazing Christmas craft to do with the family. The penguins are super simple to make and very fun to decorate. All these penguins need are some time and patience and then they will be super cute to hang on your Christmas tree.

First Steps

This craft takes a little longer to make, seeing as you have to wait at least an hour for the penguins to dry. First, you want to grab your silicone mold and fill the molds with hot glue. These do not have to be perfect, but you want to make sure you tap the silicone mold on a hard surface, such as a table or counter. This will allow any trapped air bubbles to come to the surface and help make your penguin nice and smooth. Set the mold aside and wait for the glue to completely dry. If the glue is clear, it is not dry. If the glue is white, it is dry.

While you are waiting, you have to make loops by which you can hang the penguins. This step is super easy. All it takes is some wire and a pair of scissors. First, cut pieces of wire and then you want to make a loop and twist the two single ends together. Be careful because the ends of the wire can be sharp. Set those aside and check on the progress of your penguins. Once they are white and completely dry, go ahead and pop them out of the mold. Now, you have cute, little hot glue penguins.

Time For Some Fun

Now that you have your penguins, it is time to paint them and make them super adorable. For my penguins, I decided to stick to the traditional penguin look. You can always paint things whatever colors you want them. You have to love your craft first! First, using an artist brush, I painted the body black, leaving a white spot in the middle. I also painted two small black eyes. After that, I cleaned my brush and painted his feet and beak orange. Next, I cleaned my brush again and painted his scarf blue and his hat red. I set him aside and let him have some time to dry before moving on.

Once your painted penguin is completely dry, you want to grab that wire loop that you first created. Carefully, you want to push the pointed ends into the top of the penguin and lift him by the loop to be sure he is securely on there. If he does not hang on or if he is wiggly, push the wire into him a little bit more and make sure is attached to the loop. Once, you have painted and loop all of your penguins, you are ready to add them to your Christmas tree.

Now, he is ready for you to hang him on your Christmas tree and enjoy the holiday with you. These cute little penguins were so fun to make and would be such a fun craft to do with the kids for the holidays. I hope this was helpful and as fun for you as it was for me. Have fun crafting for the holidays and spend time with your family!
