Penguin Painted Rocks for Christmas
This inexpensive Christmas painted rocks craft is so cute and quite giftable. They would be fabulous nestled on a fleece tree skirt and any penguin lover would be thrilled with these under a tree decorated with my DIY Felt Penguin Ornaments too!
Give them a weatherproof clear coat and these little penguins could be displayed outside as well.
