Introduction: Make a Silly Penguin!

Picture of Make a Silly Penguin!

Everyone needs a silly penguin! Here's how to make one! (or two or more!)

Step 1: Empty Water Bottle Is Needed

Take an empty water bottle, leave the cap on and remove any labels.

You can use other bottles too!

Step 2: Paint!

Paint the bottle completely with white acrylic paint and let it dry!

Step 3: Penguinize It!

With black acrylic paint, you need to paint over the white as shown in the picture to penguinize.

Step 4: The Finishing Touches!

Your penguin needs a pair of googly eyes, and a beak and feet which can be cut out of orange foam from the craft store.

Step 5: Eyes and Beak Are Attached

Glue the eyes, and beak onto your silly penguin as shown in the pictures.

Step 6: Put a Sock on It!

Take an old clean sock in a bright colour and cut it in half. Throw away the toe part and use only the ribbed cuff end. Tie a knot in the half sock. You now have a silly hat for your silly penguin.

Step 7: Finished Penguin

Glue the foam feet onto your bird and place the hat over the cap and the silliness is complete!

Step 8: For Extra Silliness

Send your penguin out on a "hot" date, wearing his own green foam bow tie (or not!)

Agreed, and you can actually get some pretty cool Linux fan-art out of this.

whoa that plate is the same kind my (late) Grandma and Grampa had. They are nice plates.

Butterfly Gold by Corelle! They are now discontinued and I only have a few left as I am very good at breaking plates!

He looks like the evil penguin from "wallace and grommit : the wrong trousers"

Ah, yes, but he's now a reformed character!

Hahaha He is rather cute :P

I love it.... I keep having to look back at this. I'm thinking of combining this with the shower caddy idea and build a plastic bottle penguin shower caddy for our bathroom down here, or maybe I'll make it into a big eyed kitty caddy to match the shower curtain....

Butterfly Gold by Corelle! My husband bought them in 1980 when we first came to America. I only have three left and use them for projects such as this silly penguin!
