If you’ve been looking for that perfect project to bring a special little something to your garden, we reckon we’ve come across just the thing. We just love any kind of craft that takes ordinary household waste and transforms it into something remarkable, so how about these cute little hedgehog planters made with nothing more than a few plastic bottles?
Gorgeously creative and sublimely simple to make, you’ll need nothing more than a few bits and pieces you’ll probably already have lying around the home. What’s more, they’re so easy to make you’ll have a great time getting the kids involved too – why not have the whole family set aside a few hours this weekend and transform your garden?

- Twist ties or bobby pins
- Glue gun
- Magic markers or paints
- The plants of your choosing
