Quilled Christmas Lights

(Printable Instructions)

List of Supplies:

  1. Craft paper – white
  2. Quilling Strips
  3. Slotted Paper Quilling Tools
  4. Scissors 
  5. Craft Glue or glue stick

Instructions to make the craft:

Step 1: Take a 20 inches long colored quilling strip and use the slotted quilling tool to coil the entire strip.

Step 2: Once the coiling is done, take out the coiled strip from the tool and allow it loosen up. 

Step 3: Press any one side of the loose coil to form a teardrop shape and glue the open end to secure the shape.

Step 4: Take a 3 inches long white colored quiling strip and create a loose coil shape with it.

Step 5: Press 2 opposite sides of the loose coil to form a lens shape.

Step 6:Grab the teardrop shape prepared in the previous steps.

Step 7: Insert the lens shape created in step 5 into the teardrop shape, through the gap of any coils near the curved end; the bulb pattern is ready. Similarly create more bulb patterns.

Step 8: Now take a 6 inches long black quilling strip and create a small twirl on any of its ends. Use about 2 or 3 cm to create the twirl pattern.

Step 9: Cut out a white craft paper or cardstock paper for the background, or you can choose any color you want.

Step 10: Glue the 2 black twirled strips on the paper by creating a slight curvy pattern with them. Glue the 2 strips in 2 rows, keeping at least an inch gap between them. 

Step 11: Take a bulb pattern and glue it on the paper by keeping the curved end adjacent to the black strip (which is the main wire for the bulbs). 

Step 12: One by one add the rest of the bulbs to fill the black strip. 

Allow the glue to dry and have fun!
