Autumn Spiky paper hedgehogs

Like so many others right now we are spending almost all of our time at home or in the garden. Crafting has always been a part of our day but now i’m busy trying to come up with even more to keep our 4yo entertained alongside learning his letters and numbers. Like many others he misses his friends at school so it’s been important for us to make sure that he has fun things to do each day. These Autumn spiky paper hedgehogs are not just one of my favourite crafts of today but one of my favourite ever. i think they’re adorable and they definitely provided an hour of fun after we ended up making a whole family of them!

You will need:

  • Light and dark brown paper or card
  • White paper
  • Colored paper
  • Black marker
  • Scissors
  • Glue

First take your brown card and cut out the elongated tear shape of your hedgehog’s body as you can see above.

Cut out a round or heart shaped nose from your coloured paper. Then cut out a white oval and draw on the outer eye and pupil using your black marker. Glue the eye and nose down onto your hedgehog.

Cut out some strips of your dark brown card and fold them in half to make squares.

Glue your squares down in row on your hedgehog to make his spikes. Put aside to dry and your super cute hedgehog is finished!
