MY Version of a 3D Quilled Pot

Post by quillingsavy on 2010-04-18, 06:01

Well, I feel like sharing my version of quilled pots.

This is a picture of the pot I just made:



The main part is

5 strips of 1/4 inch wide paper,

and the base is

2 strips of a 1/4 inch wide paper.

You can form the top long if you like, as I did, but you don't have to make it as 3D as I did. To make each one 3D, you just push it with your fingers ever so slightly, and just work it. Sometimes, a toothpick may help with the ends of the coils. The base is more of a cup coil, and just pressed in a little. Once each one is to the shape you like, coat it all on the inside with glue, and glue them together. The bottom one should be facing down.

For making the flowers, I like to use wire. I just use the craft wire, and I just put it in all uncut first, to see how big I want the wire to be. Consider folding it so that it will glue down easily. Don't worry about the bottom being coated with craft wire, because it should all be covered with flowers. Once you have the length of the wire, fold the wire into thirds, for extra sturdiness. If need be, push down the ends better. Then, take a green strip, and glue it to the end of the wire. Then, wrap it around the wire. Don't worry if it doesn't wrap well a few times, since it's just the over all color that counts, and you won't see it in the end that much anyway. Then, glue it down to the end. It doesn't matter if you don't have enough of the strip, since it will be at the bottom. It's the top that matters.

Then, do this step over and over, and put in any flowers you'd like, as well as some greenery. Most of the petals in mine were 3 inches, but it can vary if you want smaller or larger flowers!

Here's the finished pot:
