Tutorial: how to make a hedgehog out of fruit!

Assalamu alaikum!

Today I decided to give you the tutorial of how to make the hedgehog I had shown you in my previous post! Hope your all feeling exited inshallah! It’s a picture tutorial but, it is very easy making one so inshallah you will find it very easy! Inshallah I’ll give you the tutorial with pictures and commentary.


you will need: lots of toothpicks, red and green grapes and a pear with the stick.

Getting all the ingredients together :)


peeling the pear :)

With a knife, mark a line all around the pear. Don’t cut it too hard! Otherwise your pear won’t be strong enough and it might break.
Then, peel it starting from the marked line all the way to the stick.



a cut pear...

Then, when you finished peeling, cut the pear. Cut a small piece and keep the bigger one. This is how your hedgehog can stay still while you stick in the grapes! You have to obviously put the flat side down!


Stick in the tooth picks! And the grapes :D

This is where all the tooth picks come in! Stick the tooth picks in the pear. If your using large grapes, put them in a bit. But if your using medium ones, stick them in about halfway. And don’t put them too close together. The grapes won’t fit if you do!


WOW! Spiky!



Actually, I mean nearly done!
If you want you could just stop there but to make it look more cute you could just carry on :)




Cute <3

With a tooth pick, make two holes and stick clovers in the holes for eyes. And put a bright red grape on the stick for a cute little nose!

And this is the end of my very long post. I’ve never made such a long post with lots of pictures before and today I did! I’m very happy alhamdulillah :D Please feel free to leave a comment in the comment section below. I hope you enjoyed this post inshallah. I love blogging!

Making characters out of fruit – The yummy hedgehog =3

Assalamu alaikum my dear readers!

We have been busy with a guest this weekend so I didn’t get to post. Sorry about that. It’s been 5 days since the last time I went on my blog and now one has been commenting lately :( But but but, we have made something over the weekends! It was very fun to make and it was a hedgehog! How exiting! It was made entirely out of fruit too! A nice healthy snack for you to enjoy! we made two of them but we ate one and took a picture of the second one before it got eaten too!

This is our awesome result! :D

Hi Mr hedgehog! LOL

the result!

Do you like it as much as I do?! I loved it and I couldn’t wait to pick out all the grapes. He’s got a funny little nose too! Oh and the eyes are made out of cloves. We arranged the grapes in a pattern to make it more nice, if you can see. All the greens are in a row and the so are the reds. I found it very fun alhamdulillah and maybe you could make a hedgehog too! You can make whatever you like. Well, I need to go now. Alhamdulillah I have made a post today and Inshallah see you on my next post!

Surat al-Asr (the time)

Assalamu alaikum!

  1. By the time,
  2. Truly man is in a state of loss,
  3. Except those who believe and do righteous deeds, and advice each other to uphold the truth, and advice each other to observe patience.

Explanation: The arabic word Asr means time, that is measurable, consisting of succession of periods.
Hence, Asr bears the significance of the passing or the flight of time - time that can never be recaptured.

This quick post helps you understand the translation and explanation of the Surat Al-Asr (The time). It is a small educational post which I wanted to share with you.I had read this from one of my islamic studies books and decided to put it on my blog for you guys to read :)

Please comment! And I’m really glad there are quit alot of people visiting my blog every day!

Wassalamu alaikum!
Habiba :D
