Paper Plate Hedgehog

Try this fun colourful hedgehog made from a paper plate that kids will be proud to put on display. Little ones may need a bit of guidance getting the right shape and help with the cutting out, but older children should do just fine on their own.




  1. Fold your plate in half to find the halfway mark.
  2. Cut the plate in half with scissors.
  3. Colour your plate with crayons or paint. You can use browns and greys like a real hedgehog, or like me, you can choose some nice bright colours.
  4. While the paint dries mark 2 rectangles on the other half of the plate, one big and one small as shown.They don't have to be accurate. You will use these to make a stand.
  5. Cut out the rectangles.
  6. Bend down one end of the large rectangle and both ends of the small rectangle.
  7. Draw a nose on the coloured half, positioning it as in the photo.
  8. Draw a curved line upwards from the nose.
  9. Draw a straight line to the edge of the plate.
  10. Cut along the lines.
  11. Draw a cute face.
  12. Cut a fringe all around.
  13. Apply glue to the folded end of the large rectangle.
  14. Stick it to the back of the hedgehog just below the spines.
  15. Apply glue to both ends of the small rectangle.
  16. Stick the small rectangle in place between the other rectangle and the plate. You can now display your hedgehog as it will stand on its own.
