|Step 1. Gather your supplies.
To create the penguin, thread a silver Jingle Bell about 3 inches onto a black Fuzzy stick.
Thread a second silver Jingle Bell onto the same black Fuzzy stick. Rotate the Jingle bell so that the top of the Jingle Bell is sitting on the top of the first Jingle Bell as shown.
Form one of the penguin’s arms by making a loop with the short piece of Fuzzy Stick.
Wrap the long end of the Fuzzy Stick around the jingle bells again. Create the second arm by creating a loop on as shown.
Coil the remaining portion of the Fuzzy Stick to create the penguin’s body.
Add craft glue to the Fuzzy Stick coil so it will stick to the Jingle Bell.
Paint the body jingle bell white for the penguin’s belly and the top jingle bell black for his head.
Cut a small piece of an orange Fuzzy Stick and bend to create a beak. Glue onto the top, head jingle bell and add (2) Adhesive Wiggly Eyes.
Create a loop from a 4 inch piece of red ribbon. Have an adult use hot glue to secure the ribbon for hanging.
To create the snowman, follow steps 2 and 3 using a white Fuzzy Stick to create the body.
Wrap the entire short end of the Fuzzy Stick around the Jingle Bells to secure them together.
Thread a third silver Jingle Bell onto the other end of the white Fuzzy Stick. Position this Jingle Bell directly under the second Jingle Bell.
Bring the remainder of the Fuzzy Stick up the left side and wrap it once around the top 2 Jingle Bells to secure.
Paint your jingle bells white and let dry.
To make the hat, wrap a black Fuzzy Stick around your fingers.
When you have about 3 inches left, coil the Fuzzy Stick to create the brim of the hat. Glue to the top of the snowman.
Create a carrot nose using a piece of an orange Fuzzy Stick and add (2) Adhesive Wiggly Eyes to complete his face.
Wrap a white Fuzzy Stick around the snowman, between the second and third Jingle Bell. Continue to loosely coil around the bottom as shown.
Cut a black Fuzzy Stick into (4) pieces, and thread one of the pieces through the slits in the second Jingle Bell to create the arms of the snowman.
Repeat step 10 to attach the ornament.
