I was originally planing to do this project for my winter wreath , but quilling was new to me and spray panting already made wooden snowflakes seemed much easier. However, since I had already bought quilling supplies, I decided I would still try my hand at making quilled snowflakes.
I just kind of winged it today, there was no pattern or anything. This means I have no directions to share, but I encourage you to get your creative juices flowing and make up your own design as well.
If you don’t know what quilling is, it’s basically rolled up paper that’s glued together to make a shape. You can squish the paper, or roll from different ends to create different scrolled designs. When it’s all put together, especially with snowflakes, you get a very pretty and intricate design.
You need a special tool to easily roll up the paper. The kind I used has a little slot where you insert the paper, I recommend this kind. I also used a snowflake grid, found “here”, to help keep my scrolls uniform. Put some wax paper over it so your project doesn’t stick to the paper.
This was the glue I used, but I’m sure any kind of glue would work.
I love this so much! I’m not perfect at it yet, but they still look fabulous. It’s also fairly easy, and rather relaxing, and I like how It’s something you can do while watching TV or chatting with people.
How about you? have you quilled anything before? Let me know! I would love to see your projects.
