The Christmas wreath is gone and the front door looks a little bare. What to do? It’s too early for the Valentine’s Day wreath, so how about something snowy and wintery instead? Add some whimsy to your home with a cute penguin craft winter wreath! Inspired by this wreath from West Elm, I made my own version of this cute piece of winter door decor.
Penguin Craft Wreath Tutorial Supplies:
- STYROFOAM Wreath Form.
- Dura Foam Egg Shapes.
- Darice White Sticky Back Felt Sheet – (At Least 3 Sheets).
- Darice Sticky Back Felt Sheets – (2 Sheets Black, 1 Sheet Orange).
- Darice Snowflake Craft Dies.
- Darice Low Temp Glue Gun.
Step 1. To begin you penguin craft wreath tutorial you will die cut multiple snowflakes from the adhesive backed foam. I cut approximately 30 snow flakes using all the dies in the pack.
Step 3. The next step in this tutorial is to create the penguin craft that is the centerpiece of your wreath. Cut a piece of black felt that is about 8 inches long and 4 inches wide. Hot glue the black felt lengthwise around the foam egg. Cut multiple slits in the felt as pictured. Hot glue each strip onto the egg to cover the entire back of the egg.
Step 4. Cut an oval from the white felt. I used the mid sized oval from this Darice nested die pack as a stencil. Hot glue it onto the front of the egg. I cut a few slits at the bottom as pictured so that the white felt wouldn’t pucker up and look bumpy.
Step 5. Cut oval wings out of the black felt. Then cut heart shaped feet, a triangle beak, and circle eyes to finish the penguin.
Step 6. Hot glue the penguins onto the snowflake covered wreath. You can place them side by side or stack them to create a more layered look.
I’m tempted to add a cute felt scarf to my penguins so they can stay warm. What do you think? Have fun crafting and creating this adorable winter penguin craft wreath for your front door! Check out this snow covered DIY winter wreath for another winter door decor option.
