Valentine's Day

Penguin Valentine's Day Decor

I love using penguins to decorate with in the winter. They're perfect because they aren't just for Christmas, so you can keep them out all winter and into Valentines Day. Today I want to share this cute little penguin couple you can make from just some wood scraps or plaques you buy and a little paper.

Made by: Robyn
Time: 15 minutes
Level: Beginner
Size: Varies

Here's what you need:

  • Permanent Glue Squares®
  • Wood plaque or scraps
  • DCWV Cardstock, Burlap, and Designer Paper
  • Heart buttons
  • Sharpie
  • Scissors

Here's what you do:

Cut your Burlap per to fit onto your wood plaque to create a textured background and adhere together with Permanent Glue Squares.


Cut your simple penguin body shape, eyes and stomach (heart shape) and adhere layer with Permanent Glue Squares as well.


Use your buttons to add the feet and beak. Take the sharpie and draw in the black of the eyes.


Optional, add a hat or bow or other fun accessories to your penguin couple.


I adore this little penguin couple. They will be perfect just sitting on top of a little shelf or hanging from a ribbon on the wayll AND they can stay out all winter long! Happy Hearts Day!
