The technique of quilling used is simple and you need just some basic earring making findings for this project.

How to make quilled studs:

Materials required:

  • Quilling strips (5 mm) in pink and white colors
  • Quilling needle
  • Earrings posts and ear backs
  • Fabric glue

Step 1:

Using a quilling needle, quill a coil with a pink strip. The size of the coil depends on the required size of each hydrangea petal. Use fabric glue to secure the coil.

Pinch the coil at one spot to get a tear drop shape.

Now flatten the top of the tear drop to make a triangular piece. Ensure it is not too flat so that it looks like a petal.

Step 9:

Once dry, apply a coat of fixative or any other quilling glaze. I have used fabric glue as the top coat. You will be able to notice the shine in the below image. Insert the ear back.
