3D Quilling - A Bucket of Flowers - DIY

Post by psychedaboutquilling on 2010-01-20, 04:18

Hello Everyone!

I don't know about you, but I love 3D quilling. The end result looks fantastic. I have recently finished a 3D piece - A bucket of flowers - and would like to share my DIY design with you.



You will need:

Floral foam
Paper strips for quilling
Glue
Tie wire
Card
Beads (optional)

Depending on what size bucket you would like, cut a rectangle shape from the card for the body and a smaller strip for the handle. Glue the ends together to form a cylinder.

Cut a cylinder from the floral foam. Make sure it is about .5cm shorter than the bucket. Slide the floral foam into the bucket. Glue the handle of the bucket on.

You can decorate the bucket to your liking. I have green edging and a butterfly on the front of mine. I also used bows on the handle with a bead on each one.

Quill flowers, you can make as many or as little as you want with your choice of designs. I have used roses, sunflowers, and different colours of 4 petal flowers with a bead glued to each one. Now for the stems...

Cut the tie wire with an extra inch to stick into the floral foam with. Wrap the tie wire with a green strip, use glue to hold it into place while you wrap and make sure you only wrap 2/3 of the tie wire.

Glue the flowers to the stems. Once they have dried, place them in the floral foam. You can bend them into shape or where you want them to go.

Floral foam isn't that attractive, I covered it with small strips of curled paper. You could also use tiny fish tank stones as well.

I would love to see a photo once you finished!

Why not make a personalized note on a piece of card and glue it to a toothpick, stick it in the foam and make it a gift to someone?

Let me know if you have any questions Laughing

Thanks! I have it sitting on my bookcase at the moment as an ornament. But it could be a nice gift for someone.

Tammy,
I am thinking I may use this idea for a small Easter egg container. Do you put a paper base in the bucket?
Thanks
Bronwyn

Hi Bronwyn, I think she used flower foam from what I can see but you could use paper if you wanted to!!

Hi Bronwyn,

I actually used card in the bottom, glued it to the floral foam!

Depends on what shape you are making your container, you can get patterns for cubes and boxes of all shapes and sizes off the internet.

OK, now that's creepy. See my avatar?!

I've made a 3d flower thing before, in a pot, too. Twice, in fact, though it was rather small, but cool none the less. I actually used the thicker strips to make the pot. One 3d coil, large, on the top, and a smaller one on the bottom as a base. It looks really nice Very Happy. I used wire for the stems to hold it up too- though I consider it "cheating" Razz. Other then that, I only use paper and glue.

3d basket

Post by Jean on 2010-03-07, 15:07

Hi Tammy,

Lovely quilling like that can be a real dust catcher. To help preserve all that good work maybe try coating the whole thing in a clear spray sealer, a non-yellowing one. Or find a neat clear plastic box or cover.

If it will be a gift, a cover will make sure the beauty lasts longer and stays fresh looking. The cover will need dusting but your creating will be safe and continue to give pleasure.

Keep up the good work. Top marks.

Thanks for the nice comments. cheers Cristina, love your 3D work. What did you use around your tree stems? paper strips or sheet of paper?

I like the bright colours too! I like using bright colours cause it stands out so much more. cyclops

Jean, were would I get the spray from? It's a really good idea! Very Happy

really? i though they always looked worse in the photos! I can't seem to get a good enough photo because of the lighting or the colours look really bland and not strong and bright. I think you have done really well to learn from the internet and after one year, you are pretty good!

Have you only learnt english in the 8 months, because you speak it very well!

No, I start to use english 3 years ago, in Romania, because my older san, now in grade4,started to go to a english school, in romania.But...very slow .After we moved here, in wien,it was verry necessary to talk english, because i don't know german, and a lot of austrian people know english~!
So, was necesery to talk, but,I know, is a down level.BUT,by talking with you, my english wll be better...
about quilling, yes,I like to use my hands for this!very much!

Sealer spray

Post by Jean on 2010-03-08, 14:57

Hi Tammy,

You should be able to pick a can at any good craft supply outler or even a paint supply shop, but make sure it is the non-yellowing type or it will change the colour of your nice bright colours to dull (in time).

Love your card, isn't quilling a grand thing?

Yes, it looks much better than the plain printed cards from the shop, and cheaper to make too!

Hi Everyone,
Loooove the quilling projects on this topic everyone has been creating some fantastic pieces and it is so nice to see that imagination can play a big part of our quilled art. I love your little tree, what did you use for the branches? I hope your move to a new country hasn't been too much of an upheavil I know just moving with our 7 children into another state was hard let alone to a new country with another language!
A big welcome to all the new members and we really look forward to getting to know you with an interchange of encouragement
