Sonic the Hedgehog Centerpiece Supplies
You do not need to be an artist to recreate this centerpiece. Just a few simple supplies and our free printable template will help you add a little zip to your party decorations.
- Yellow tin bucket
- Styrofoam wreath and block
- Yellow crepe streamers
- Acrylic Paint – navy blue
- Dark Blue Glitter Paper Fan Decorations
- Sonic the Hedgehog printable face PDF
- Hot glue
- Straight pins
- Wood dowel
- Cardstock – yellow
Paint three wooden dowels navy blue and set aside to dry.
To hold the dowel while painting, insert it into a scrap piece of foam as the tip will be covered anyway.
Tip: This is a great step to include the birthday boy or a younger sibling to help!
Wrap the foam wreath in yellow crepe streamers, using straight pins to secure. Insert a painted wood dowel into the bottom.
Tip: Add a little hot glue to help hold it in place.
Open two of the smallest paper fans and peel the adhesive to expose the tape to secure them open. Lay your sonic template on top of one and use a pencil to trace the shape. Cut out the shape to reveal Sonic’s classic spikey head shape.
Adhere Sonic’s face and ear onto the paper fan to create a 3D Sonic head then adhere this onto one of the painted wood dowels.
Cut out the birthday boy’s age onto a piece of yellow cardstock and adhere this onto the other small paper fan. Adhere a painted wood dowel on the bottom.
Place a foam block into the tin bucket. Insert all three decorated wood dowels into the foam.
Tip: Insert two at an angle so you can see all the components.
Cover the foam with paper shred and display during your Sonic the Hedgehog Birthday Party! Add it as tall centerpieces at your eating station or use it as a decorative prop on your dessert table. Anywhere you want to add a little height to your party decor.
