Last week I showed you how to make snowman ornaments using a light bulb…
Okay, I have one more light-bulb ornament to show you… promise! (But, if I find another, stinking cute, one to make, then I take no responsibility for the previous statement… :D)
I found the idea on Pinterest. The pin came from a website that was in Portuguese,( in English it is called Art of Making. Thank you Google translator!) but pictures are all you need to see the cute ornaments on the site.
I really liked the penguin, and I knew I could copy it. (I’m the master copy-catter! *wink*wink* ;))
It was pretty easy, and my kid’s even helped make one for themselves (with some assistance.)
I painted the bulbs white the same way I did for the light-bulb snowmen. I added the ribbon to hang it, but waited until the end to add the hat.
I penciled on the body and then painted it black (or red, if your name is Jonathan. Did I mention, he’s three???… :)). This is the part the kids helped with, I just instructed them not to paint inside the pencil line.
After the body was dry, I drew on the face, wreath, and then the wings (penguins have wings, right? flippers? Oh! You know what they are!), painted everything, and let it dry.
Finally, I added the hat, just like I did for the snowmen, but no scarf for the penguins, I thought they were cute without it.
Hands down, penguins are my new fave!
They are just so stinking cute!
