This step-by-step shows how I created the above door hanger, it features the Tonic Studios Woodland Buildable – Harry Hedgehog Die set. The new buildable dies are fabulous as you can make all sorts of little characters from them, and mix and match accessories from each, my hedgehog could have had glasses from the owl die set, a bow from the fox die set or the balloon from the Betty Bunny Die set, they are really versatile. I created a lady hedgehog for my last blog post, so let’s create a boy hedgehog for this tutorial.
This tutorial is in two parts, decorating the door hanger and constructing Harry the Hedgehog.
DECORATING THE DOOR HANGER
1. Cover a shop bought door hanger with wood grain paper and sand the edges to give a distressed look.
2. Cut a small strip of hessian and glue it at an angle on the wood grain paper.
3. Wind your garden string above the hessian and glue on a button. Then, wind more string to the top of the hanger.
