Wooden Penguin Frame

These frames can be decorated in a number of ways. Use the steps below as a decorative guide and mix up the techniques to create a unique combination of your own!

Search terms: bird, Antarctica, south pole.

  • Step 1Begin by giving your frame a coat of white paint. Allow to dry. This is not essential but provides a good base for painting.
  • Step 2Use a pencil to draw your penguin’s belly and eyes. Look to our design for inspiration. Paint the outside of your penguin frame with blue paint. Allow to dry.
  • Step 3Use a marker to outline your penguin’s body and eyes. Attach two wiggle eyes and a small triangle of orange cover paper for a beak.
  • Step 4Cut two wings from foam and attach with glue. Allow to dry.
  • Step 5Add a photo to your frame. We recommend photocopying your photo rather than cutting up an original. Place your frame onto your photo and trace the inner shape. Cut out your photo, leaving 1cm excess around the traced shape. Tape or glue it to the back of your frame.
