Paper Plate Hedgehog In Pumpkin
Print This Tutorial
Crayons, Markers, Coloring Pencils etc.
Large Paper Plate
First things first - paint your paper plate completely ORANGE.
Add some thin lines of brown paint, for some added dimension.
Once done painting, set it aside to allow it to dry completely.
If you haven't already, go ahead and print out the free provided printable from us.
Go ahead and color in the hedgehog design however you like with crayons, markers, coloring pencils etc.
When done coloring, go ahead and cut out the shape from the paper.
Discard excess paper.
When the painted paper plate is dry enough, go ahead and grab it, along with your scissors.
Cut the painted paper plate in half but not directly in the center. You will want to cut it so you create a small pumpkin "lid" for your hedgehog to peak out of. Use our picture for an example.
Now grab the stapler.
Stapler the paper plate pieces back together but in a slight angle so it looks like the pumpkin is opening up.
Take the hedgehog cut out you made earlier and staple him behind the opening of the pumpkin.
Next grab the the brown cardstock paper and cut out a small rectangular, pumpkin stem from it.
Finally - take the green pipe cleaner and curl it with your fingers to look like greenery for the pumpkin.
Along with the brown cardstock stem, staple those two pieces to the decorated paper plate.
Add other embellishments you see fit before displaying your hedgehog in pumpkin creation proudly for all to see!
