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.
