Hey Lovelies! I really wanted to have a fun aspect in this Winter Wonderland project. So I thought of creatures that I could add and that are not too complicated to make, in case you don’t have experience with clay. In the end I went with those adorable penguins, since you can change the position of the wings, you can also let them climb something. How cute is that?! Let me show you how to make those penguins!
For this DIY you’ll need:
♥ Air Dry Clay in the colors Black and Orange/Yellow.
♥ White Acrylic Paint.
♥ Clay Tools. (Optional, I just used my hands)
Start with a bit of black clay and roll it into a ball with a diameter of about 1cm. Now, make an indent about 1/3 versus 2/3, so there’s gonna be a bit definition for the body and head. On the bottom half, pinch out a tail with your fingers.
Paint a white face/belly on the front of the penguin. It’s like a heart for the face and a circle for the belly.
From a tiny bit of Orange/Yellow clay you make 3 tiny balls for the beak and feet, glue those on. Then make the flippers from a bit of flattened black clay and attach those to the body as well. You can play around a bit with the flippers on how to position them. And don’t forget the eyes! Use either paint of a tiny bit of clay.
And that’s all, make as many penguins as you like and spread them around on the snowball, maybe even on the tree? Just have fun with them for that cute, adorable accent.
