This quilled flower necklace craft is super easy and fun for kids (and adults) to make and provides the perfect gift to give to Mom for Mother’s Day!
This flower necklace craft is one of my favorite activities to share with kids and teens. It lets them use their creativity and show their own personal style. You’ll be amazed at how much you can change up the look of your necklace by changing paper colors, adding additional embellishments, and even changing up the shapes and sizes of your paper petals!
Quilled Flower Necklace Craft
- Quilling paper strips
- Craft Glue
- Slotted quilling tool
- Faux pearl bead – small size
- Jump ring
- Necklace chain or string
- Additional beads or embellishments as desired
Pick a paper strip for the center of the flower. Use the slotted quilling tool to quill the strip.
After quilling the whole strip, take it off of the quilling tool,
making sure that the coil is secure.
Let the coil to loosen up a bit.
Place the loose quilled strip on a flat surface and attach a small faux bead on the center with glue.
Tighten the coil again around the bead by holding it between 2 fingers and pulling the end of the paper strip. Apply glue at the end to secure the coil. This will be the center of the flower.
Select a different colored strip and quill it using the slotted quilling tool.
After quilling the strip carefully take it out of the tool.
Allow the coil to loosen up a bit by placing it on a flat surface.
Take the loose quilled pattern and press any one side to create a pointy edge.
We’ve created a teardrop pattern.
Now press the opposite side of the pattern to create another pointy edge.
Now, we’ve created a basic eye pattern.
Create 5 more eye patterns using the same colored strips (total 6)
and create 3 eye patterns using a different colored strip.
Take a piece of paper and place the center part of the flower on the paper.
Take any 2 basic eye patterns from the 6 and attach them to the center part with glue.
Now take any one of the eye patterns from the 3 alternate color
and attach it next to the other flower petals.
Now repeat these steps until reaching the first eye pattern;
attaching 2 same colored eye patterns and then 1 other colored eye pattern.
Create another tight coil with a relatively bigger loop on the center.
Attach the coil to the flower pattern between any 2 petals.
Attach a jump ring through the loop of the coil to complete the pendant.
Your flower is done. Slip it onto your chain or string along with any additional beads or embellishments that you think will compliment your creation!
