In this project, we attempt to make a wall hanging of quilled flowers and leaves in a simple and elegant pattern. Quilling strips in Orange, Off white and green have been primarily used for this work.
How to make Quilled Flowers:
Take a quilling strip of your choice and make a tight coil with it. Slotted quilling needles are useful for making tight coils. For a tutorial on how to make tight coils, see here.
Pinch on one side of the coil to make a tear drop shape.
Quill five such tight teardrops and glue them together to make a flower. Fabric glue has been used for this project.
Now make a small tight coil for the center of the flower and glue it on top of the base as shown here.
For each leaf, we will have to quill two loose coils of the same size in green.
Press and glue them together and then shape it as needed.
Around 25 flowers and 12 such leaves have been made for this work.
We will start gluing on the flowers and leaves in the chosen pattern on a suitable sheet of card stock.
First glue on the flowers..
And a few buds.
The completed quilled flowers wall hanging piece is here. It can be framed as per your preference.
