These cute little hedgehogs will look right at home in your garden and they are so easy to make that you will be amazed.

For full instructions for making the hedgehog planter, visit Susie Qute. This is a great garden project to do with kids or to satisfy the garden bug in you this winter while the snow is still piled up outside.
