A bucket of flowers 3D

Post by psychedaboutquilling on 2010-01-20, 04:24

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?

Oh this is so clever. I never thought to use floral foam before... now the penny drops and it all makes sense. Thanks for sharing the instructions.

This is so pretty - I love it!

Hope you don't mind if I give it a go when I can get some floral foam - I think we call it oasis here in the UK - and wire. I'll show you my attempt Smile

How do you glue the flowers to the wire? The wire is pointed at the end, will it stick okay to the bottom of the flower?

I would form a tiny hook in the wire. This is a technique used in cake decorating. The glue sticks quite well to florists wire which is a covered wire and the paper.

Thanks Bronwyn!

Here's my attempt, not as good, but not bad for a 1st. I couldn't get the handle quite right. I think it would look better with a spout, so it's a watering can - I might try that next time Smile
