If you loved our no-sew sock snowman you’re going to love our no-sew sock penguin craft too! This little fellow will fit nicely with it’s snow made friend (Santa might join too if you’re crafting before holidays) so grab that odd sock we know you have and let’s get crafty!
No-Sew Sock Penguin Craft
What you need
- 1 black sock
- 1 sock in color for the hat
- rubber bands (or thread)
- white and orange felt
- glue gun
- felt glue
- markers or paint
Start by filling the black sock with rice (you’ll need a nice amount of rice). When you are happy with the amount of rice and the rough shape of the soon to be sock penguin tie a rubber band at the top. We used two rubber bands to make things more secure.
Now take another rubber band and place it just above the middle of the sock, to separate the body and the head. You will probably have to shape the body a little with our hands. Again we used 2 rubber bands just to be on the safe side.
Cut the excess sock. You can secure the top by adding some glue from the glue gun. Cut a white oval shape (measure it against the body to get things right) out of white felt. Glue it on the sock with felt glue (glue gun works well too).
Cut a small beak out of orange felt and glue it onto the head. Draw two black eyes with a black marker.
Add ribbon to make a scarf (glue with glue gun or glue dots – ribbons can be tricky to glue together sometimes, we found out these two glues work the best with ribbons.).
Lastly cut one colorful sock (at the middle). Roll it up a little bit to get the hat shape and place on top of the penguin.
