How To Make Hedgehog Craft
Time needed: 15 minutes
- Make the body of the hedgehog
Take a brown craft paper, draw a drop shape bending on one side and cut it out. This will make the body base of our hedgehog craft.
- Make accordion folds
To make the characteristic spiny back of the hedgehog, take a rectangular sheet of brown paper and fold it in accordion style.
Next, pinch it from the middle and fold to make a fan shape. Glue the edges along the fold to keep the fan shape intact.
- Glue the fan shape on the body pattern
Place the body pattern horizontally so that the tip of the drop is facing upwards. Next, glue the fan shape on the body pattern.
- Make nose of the hedgehog
To make the nose, cut out a small heart shape from pink craft paper and paste it on the tip of the hedgehog’s face.
- Complete the face of the hedgehog
Use a black felt-tip pen and correction pen to draw an eye on the hedgehog’s face. Next, draw a cute smile.
To make your hedgehog look cute, cut a small circle from pink paper to make the blush and paste it on the hedgehog’s face.
- Add spots on the spines
Finally, to complete your simple hedgehog craft, cut out small circles from craft paper and glue them on the hedgehog’s spines.
That’s all! Your cutesy hedgehog is ready!
It is a perfect autumn craft for kids of all ages. Easy and fun, it is sure to excite your kids and keep them on a lookout for these cute creatures to visit their backyard.
