This Quilled Flower Pendant is a fun and easy paper craft project. I used to make mini quilled flowers for dollhouses and I like the idea of doing something a little larger. Paper quilling is not difficult. So don’t be shy if you haven’t tried it before. Here is the tutorial on how to make a quilled flower pendant.
List of Supplies:
- Quilling paper strips
- Craft Glue
- Slotted quilling tool
- Faux pearl bead – small size.
- Jump ring.
Step (1): Select a paper strip to get started and use the slotted quilling tool to quill the strip.
Step (2): After quilling the whole strip carefully take it out of the quilling tool, making sure that the quilled pattern is secured.
Step (3): Allow the quilled strip (coil) to loosen up a bit.
Step (4): Place the loose quilled strip on a flat surface and attach a small faux bead on the center of the quilled pattern.
Step (5): Tighten the quilled pattern again by holding it between 2 fingers and pulling the open end. Once the center part has tightened roll the rest of the strip around it and apply glue at the end to secure the pattern. This will be the center of the flower.
Step (6): Select a different colored quilling strip and quill it using the slotted quilling tool.
Step (7): After quilling the strip carefully take it out of the tool.
Step (8): Allow the quilled strip (coil) to loosen up a bit by placing it on a flat surface.
Step (9): Take the loose quilled pattern and press any one side to create a pointy edge. We’ve created a teardrop pattern.
Step (10): Now press the opposite side of the pattern to create another pointy edge. Now, we’ve created a basic eye pattern.
Step (11): Similarly create 5 more basic eye patterns using the same colored strips (total 6) and create 3 basic eye patterns using a different colored strip.
Step (12): Take a piece of clear paper or glossy paper and place the center part for the flower created in step 5 and place it on the paper. Take any 2 basic eye patterns from the 6 and attach them with the center part. Attach any of the pointy edges of the eye patterns with the center part.
Step (13): Now take any one of the eye patterns from the 3 and attach it near the previous 2 patterns; with the center.
Step (14, 15): Now repeat the step 12 and 13 until reaching the first eye pattern; attaching 2 same colored eye patterns and then 1 other colored eye pattern.
Here it is fully filled in.
Step (16): Create a tight coil with a relatively bigger loop on the center.
Step (17): Attach the coil with the flower pattern between any 2 petals.
Step (18): Attach a jump ring though the loop of the coil to complete the pendant.
Done! Wear it with a string necklace and enjoy!
