- Plastic Gallon Container – on hand
- Egg carton – on hand
- Glue gun – on hand
- Paint – on hand
- Felt – on hand
Step one: Use a craft razor to cut a large opening under the handle.
Step two: Cut the egg carton apart so you have two eyes and a beak. Glue the pieces on as pictured.
Step three: Paint the eyes and chest with white paint. Paint the rest of the penguin’s body black. Paint the beak orange.
Step four: Cut wings and feet from felt, and hot glue them on. Since this is a Valentine’s day craft, I cut heart shapes for the feet and wings. You can make other embellishments like a hat, crown, etc. and glue those on.
This sweet penguin is ready for the Valentine’s day party! My daughter has already snatched him up and is using it to hold little toys in her room. It makes a cute little storage container, as well as funny decorative piece. Best of all, this project costs nothing since most of the materials used were recycled. Have fun crafting and creating!
