How to Make

  1. Make a pencil-mark on the card to indicate where your hedgehog’s nose will be.
  2. Lay the fork in the light pink paint and print the hedgehog’s face in a triangular shape around the pencil-mark.
  3. Lay a clean fork into the brown paint and print your hedgehog spikes in an arch shape that finishes in line with the bottom of the hedgehog’s face. Fill in the arch with more brown spikes.
  4. Dip a cotton-wool ball into the black paint and dab it over your pencil mark to make your hedgehog’s nose.
  5. Dip a cotton bud into the black paint to paint two black feet. Then, add a black dot to the face to make the hedgehog’s eye and finish your painting.
