Hello creative friends! Today we’re sharing this fun and sweet tutorial for making you own adorable penguin family pebble art to resemble your own adorable family this Winter.
DIY Penguin Pebble Art
A while back, we made and shared a post on making painted penguin rocks which I have scattered throughout the house over the Winter months. I thought a cute addition to my seasonal decor would be some pebble art of a penguin family that resembles my family with four little ones.
You can customize this craft to reflect your own family, whether you have one child or several children and hang the art on the wall to enjoy. So let us know in the comments below, how many little penguins will you have on your pebble art?

How to Make Penguin Pebble Art Craft
Here is a step-by-step video of the penguin art craft we made on our Facebook page! Follow along to the video or if you prefer, continue reading below for how to make your own adorable penguin family pebble art.
Screw the eyelet hooks on to the top of the wood slice.
Next, paint the flat surface of the wood slice in a pale grey and let the paint dry. Afterwards paint the lower section in white and dab small white dots to resemble snow falling all over the grey portion. Use the back end of a small paintbrush to dab the white dots.
Paint the pebbles to look like penguins and set aside to dry. You can also follow the tutorial for making these larger painted rock penguins. Keep in mind that the baby penguins have grey painted bellies while the adult penguins, also larger in size have white bellies.
Once the wood slice and pebbles are completely dry, using the hot glue gun, glue down the penguin pebbles to the wood slice.
Take the ribbon and loop it through the eyelets to use for hanging.
