In this tutorial, we are going to make fun hedgehogs with the help of a few materials including common nettles.

Procedure

Step 1: Drawing The Face Of The Hedgehog

Drawing The Face Of The Hedgehog-Constructing a Leaf Hedgehog with this Easy Tutorial for Children

Take a small sheet of white chart paper and neatly draw the face, focusing on the side pose, of a hedgehog. Make a big round nose with a small oval shape left uncolored on the upper part of the nose to make it look more shiny and lively. You just have to draw a triangle with a small circle in it and a round circle at its tip.

Step 2: Poking Holes In Its Body

Now complete the drawing part by making its body. To do that, just extend the base of the triangle you drew earlier going a little up at the end or simply curving the edge just a little bit. Add two pairs of feet at the base of the body at some distance from each other. Take a nettle and poke holes right from the top tip of the triangle to the curved end of the body. Overline the entire sketch with a black sketch pen.

Step 3: Sticking The Nettles In These Holes

In this tutorial, we turned an object of pain into an object of pleasure and relief. The nettles that used to sting before have been put to good use now. They are both readily available and free of cost. Find more of such objects around you and turn them into art and craft. Look keenly at your surroundings, you will surely find some items of use for this purpose like shells of nuts, ice cream sticks, egg shells, and whatnot. Everything is an object of art if you have the right eyes to measure it and turn it into one. So, keep searching for more items and keep expanding the horizons and limits of your artistic achievements. See you in the next tutorial. GOOD LUCK!
