Materials List

  • Christmas wrapping paper with Penguins
  • Cardboard templates (circles, rectangles)
  • Glitter (purple, silver)
  • Craft glue and glue stick
  • Hole punch
  • Ribbon


  1. Cut cardboard templates by using a lid from any container, either a cool whip lid, or any container lid.

  2. Position the cardboard under the image on the christmas paper. You want the penguin facing up and straight on top when you cut the circle.

  3. Make two identical circles, one for each side of the cardboard. Use glue stick to smooth each circle of the paper to the cardboard.

  4. Get out any bubbles out of the paper.

  5. With the craft glue, make a border around the circle and sprinkle purple glitter at the border.

  6. Shake the excess glitter in a bowl. If you dont have purple, silver or white silver will do.

  7. Use the hole punch and punch hole 1/2 inch from the top, insert the ribbon and hang it from your tree.
