Heart Hedgehog Craft

I love a good holiday craft. Raise your hand if you are one of those moms that decorate for every holiday. GUILTY! I love to see the decorations and feel a little uplifted by the sweet colors and cheery appearance.

I especially love it when my kids’ art crafts are displayed for the holiday season. I love to look at their little crafts and remember the day we made them, how old they were, and see how much they have grown.

I try to do crafts with my kids at home. Even if it is only something small. For Valentine’s Day this year I wanted to do something different. Not the routine heart designs. That is when I happened upon this adorable Heart Hedgehog craft. It has the traditional heart and colors of Valentine’s day, but the little hedgehog is just so darling I couldn’t stand it — I just had to have it.
