B & T
To Make Up - Oversew base of hedgehog chin, sew in the tinsel ends and ensure the hedgehog sits snuggly on the bottle top. Tighten the tinsel edge if needed. Sew on 2 small beads for eyes.
If you don't have any tinsel wool, you could use other similar yarns - they seem to work equally as well.
