Coffee Pod Penguin

If you have a collection of coffee pods that you’ve been looking to upcycle, why not make some coffee pod creatures! The little cups make them easy for little hands to handle and the coffee pods look so cute when done up as an animal. Today I’m going to show how we made a coffee pod penguin. This has been one of our favourite crafts to make and the end result is super adorable.
