Hope you all are doing great. So, this is my first DIY post, especially for you guys. I have been doing quilling since like 4 years now. It’s a great art to do. I also sell quilling stuff to stores like Anupam, the stationery giant. I have not learnt it or anything, just started it by myself. You can make many different kinds of articles and crafts like envelopes, boxes, jewelry, etc. So, here is a tutorial for you guys to make a quilled necklace step by step.
Things you will need:
- Coloured strips.
- Fevicol or Fabric Glue (preferably fabric glue).
- Sharp scissors.
- A waste fabric.
- Quilling tool( available in big stationery stores for Rs. 60 or so).
Stones or rhinestones (optional).
Take the fabric and cut out a small rectangular piece measuring the size of your neck. That will be the size of your necklace and will act as the base where you will stick the quilling flowers.
Take a coloured strip of your choice and put it between the two needles of the quilling tool. Hold it vertically and twist it downwards and keep rolling the strip till you reach the end of the strip. You will have a thick round circle at the top of your quilling tool. Now, remove it and put it down freely. It will look like a coil as in the last picture in the collage.
Now, hold that coil between your thumb and the finger next to it. Hold it exactly from the point where the coil opens. Now, press the end portion in between your thumb and the finger next to it. You will get a drop shape. Leave it freely. Apply a little glue at the end of the strip and stick it . The pictures will explain you much better.
That was the drop shape that you made. Now, by adding some more steps, you can make a leaf shape. Now, hold the drop shape and press it from the other side as well the same way as you did earlier. You will get a leaf shape. So, you can make two types of flowers now by making some more petals like these, leaf-shaped flower and drop-shaped flower.
Now, a small different kind of flower. To start with the same way, put the strip in the middle of two needles of the quilling tool. Keep on rolling it downwards. Hold the hand tight while rolling because you don’t want a loose round shape. Apply a little Fevicol to the end and you will get a tight round shape. So, for one flower you need 5-6 petals and one round in between. So, accordingly make some more. You can decide the colour combinations you want.
So, all the quilling work is done. Now, take the fabric and iron it so that you don’t face any problem while sticking stuff on to it. Sorry, I forgot to iron. Now, stick the petals the way I have done in the pictures with a fabric glue. After everything is pasted on the fabric, you will give it the final shape. Cut from the edges where the flowers end and you will get a final piece. Now, take two equal pieces of ribbon and stick it to both the ends with the fabric glue. Do a small stitch at the ends so that you don’t have the fear of it falling down.
So, finally our neck piece is ready. You can try out different designs as now you know the basics of quilling. Also, you can try out different combinations as per your choice.
These are some of the envelopes I made. You can pick up different designs from here to do it on your stuff.
It was my sincere effort to show you guys the basics of quilling and I hope it has reached you properly. I hope you liked my effort. Thank you 🙂
