Instructions for your Pom Pom Hedgehogs:

  1. Draw around a ring-shaped template onto card twice and cut them out.
  2. Put the two rings together and wrap brown wool around them until the hole has nearly disappeared.
  3. Cut around the edge of the pom-pom, pushing the scissors between the two pieces of card. Tie another piece of wool between the two rings, and pull the rings away from the wool.
  4. Use the template to cut out the head and ear shapes from beige felt fabric. Glue the two head shapes together and glue it onto the pom-pom. Glue the ears into place, and add eyes and a nose cut from black felt.

Did you know: Hedgehogs are nocturnal, which means they sleep during the day and come out to feed at night!
