Quilled Pine Cones Quilled Pine Leaves Quilled Bell- Quilled Christmas Decor

 As promised, quilled pine cones, bells and pine leaves, all made from paper strips. I like the way the pine cones turned out, so a tutorial will be my next post as promised.

I made the bell by covering a small bell with cling film and quilling on top of it starting from the top. Made tiny coils and pasted one to the other. Make sure that you glue only the sides of each coil and paste it to the adjacent coils without getting the glue onto the bottom or top of the coils. From time to time press into shape and hold for a while or put a rubber band around so the shape is held tight against the mold while it dries. If you see space between coils apply glue and get them stuck  or add a new coil in between. More uniform coils make better quilled molded shapes.

Allow to dry well before slipping it off the mold.

The leaves are simple. just made use of the Christmas tree fold I did for the poinsettias veins and pasted each to another strip to make a half leaf, then pasted 4 together to make one 3d pine leaf.

Those who think the pine cones are cool,he tutorial is here. Tutorial for quilling molded bells is  here.
