Tatsiana shows us how to make a porcupine with a pear, grapes, toothpicks and cheese in this short video.
First, peel the narrow end of the pear for the face and slice off the tip. Make two slices into a grape for the eyes and stick a toothpick into the narrow end of the pear and attach a grape for the nose.
Take a long toothpick for the quill and push three grapes onto it with a piece of cheese for the tip. Then stick that into the pear and repeat until you have a porcupine with a full coats of quills.
