Up next in our pinecone crafts series is this little hedgehog. The pinecone is a perfect base for these little guys with their prickly fur. And the shape of a pinecone could not be more perfect! Our pattern includes the template for the cone face, dainty paws and cute little ears. We then added small black beads for his pretty little eyes and nose. These gorgeous DIY pinecone hedgehogs make fab tree decorations for the Holidays and are light enough to pop straight onto the branches. You could also have a go at making a family of hedgehogs using different sizes of pinecones and re-sizing the templates before you print them. We always recommend using a good quality felt for best results . My favorite felts are wool felts because the softness of the material just makes these pinecone crafts even more adorable! Once all your pieces of felt are cut you can assemble your pinecone hedgehog with a low temperature glue gun.
This is the perfect DIY project for a rainy afternoon on the run up to the Holiday season! And if you would like your pinecone hedgehog to make a few friends, then take a look at our pinecone owl, fox and squirrel – the perfect DIY woodland animal collection!
