A home for a hedge hog

Hello lovelies! Brrr it certainly is cold these days and we had a little hedge hog who needed a habitat. Okay so it's not really a hedge hog, but he really is cute in a pine cone sort of way. My daughter picked him out at the craft store. He is one of those creatures made from nature. While at the craft store, we decided to make a little habitat for our new friend. So, we picked out some nice moss, "rocks", and feathers too!

Add a large vase, Styrofoam ball, glue gun, and toothpics and you will be on your way to creating your very own hedge hog habitat too!

First, I cut one of the styrofoam balls in half and covered it with moss. I secured the moss to the ball with my hot glue gun then placed the flat side down inside the vase.

Once we were happy with the little mossy knoll, we sprinkled some glass "rocks" around the edges. Then we inserted a few toothpicks into the bottom of the critter so that we could secure it to the "ground". I also added some hot glue to the holes just to make sure the toothpicks would not come out.

The little hedge hog looks really happy in his new home. My daughter loved these peacock feathers and I think they add a nice touch. What do you think?

I kinda think this guy needs a name, but I just cannot come up with one. Do you think you can help me out? Please tell me in the comments section what you think this little fella's name should be.
