Paper Hedgehog Craft Step by Step
The hedgehog in this pattern is beautiful, both large and small, so at the initial stage you need to decide what your hedgehog will be, and already, based on this, draw two circles on brown cardboard.
In fact, the hedgehog consists of three cones, so you need to divide the two circles into halves, one of which is not needed.
Roll each half into a cone and seal the edges. You will get three identical brown cardboard cones.
At this stage, you need to make hedgehog spines. To do this, the edges of the cone are cut into small strips, but only on one half of it. That is, the thorns will be only on top of the hedgehog and a little on the sides, the bottom of the cardboard should be in a holistic state. The length of the strip is up to the middle of the cone. After all the strips are ready, they need to be slightly bent to the side.
Glue all the cones together, leaving a small space between them.
Next, you need to make a hedgehog head. It will be slightly lighter than the body with spines and also be a cone, only smaller. Therefore, cut out a circle from beige cardboard, a little smaller than it was from brown cardboard.
Cut it in half and discard one half.
Roll the other half into a cone and glue. Try on the head to the body, the cone-head should be no less and no more than the place intended for it – up to the needles. Cut off the excess if the cone is too large, if it is small, it will have to be redone. Draw eyes on it and paint over the tip, which will be the nose of the hedgehog.
Glue the head to the body and the cute paper hedgehog craft is ready.
It looks beautiful on leaves, both green and yellow.
And here is a hedgehog under an overgrown paper mushroom.
