Adorable appetizers for any occasion, olive penguins are perfect for your next party.
When I saw these cuties on Once Upon a Plate I knew I had to give them a try, but there was one thing I had to fix. The Vlad the Impaler look wasn't really what I was going for at my little soiree, so I needed a way to disguise the toothpick sticking out of the poor penguins' heads.
What could be more festive than pompom party hats?!?
Step 1: What you'll need
Jumbo pitted ripe olives
Regular pitted ripe olives
Carrot, peeled and cut into rounds
Pompom skewers or toothpicks (mine came from a cocktail kit but you could easily glue pompoms to regular bamboo skewers)
Card stock or craft paper
Clear scotch tape
Circle cutter or punch (optional)
