It has been a while that I have written a blog on quilling, wait no longer! Paper quilling is one of the most and trending crafts nowadays, one of the reasons would definitely be it is so simple to do and the results are so pretty. Quilling has been around for a while now. Nuns of the middle ages used to decorate their prayer books with paper filigree which has been reinvented to be named as quilling.
Christmas is around the corner and it is time to spread some holiday cheer with quilling! Make this gorgeous card with the little ones. Initiate the hobby and in no time you will find them doing their own quilling designs. Quilling art projects with kids can be mighty fun and here is just the project to begin with.
- Green colour quilling strips,
- Card stock,
- Quilling slotted needle,
- Fevicryl 3D glitter silver
- Rangoli, Fevicryl 3D outliner white and red.
Take 5 mm quilling strips of various shades of green.
Using a slotted needle make small tight coils with the quilling strips. Make about 25 of each colour.
Take any dark coloured card stock to signify midnight sky. I’ve used purple.
Paste the coils onto the card paper in triangles as shown in the image with Fevicol. Let it dry.
Make the trunk of the tree with 3D glitter Rangoli and snowflakes with 3D glitter Silver. Enhance the trees with ornaments made of 3D outliner red. Write Merry Christmas on the card with 3D outliner white. Leave it to dry.
Here we are ready with a gorgeous card in a jiffy!
Friends and Family will be thrilled to receive this on the auspicious occasion of Christmas. You can even make small ornaments for your Christmas tree using the same method.
There are many more upcoming art and craft ideas which will keep the little ones occupied. Check out this space for more!
