This is a simple guide to making beautiful quilling earrings. Follow these 10 easy steps to create these quilling earrings!
Step 1: Materials
To make these Quilling earrings you need:
- Two different coloured Quilling Paper stripes (for one earring)
- Quilling Needle
- Glue/ Glue Tape
- Earring hook (pair)
- Two circular rings (to attach hook and quilling piece)
Step 2: Step 1
Place the first quilling strip inside the needle, as seen in the picture
Step 3: Step 2: Create a Coil
Hold the needle in one hand and the paper using the other. Then turn the needle as seen in the picture in order to create a coil (see second picture above)
Step 4: Step 3: Create the Shape
Slowly and carefully remove the coil off the needle and hold lightly to loosen. Then pinch two opposite sides of the coil to create ab eye-shape as in the picture.
Step 5: Step 4: Glueing!
After the shape has been created use glue or glue tape to attach the open side to the shape.
Step 6: Step 5: Second Circle
Take your second quilling strip (shorten the strip by tearing it in half) and use the same method as shown in step 1-2, but instead of pinching the ends you secure it as a tight coil itself.
Step 7: Step 6
Take a small piece of paper and attach it to one side of the circle with glue/ glue tape.
Step 8: Step 7: More Glueing!
Fold the two flaps and glue them onto the eye-shaped form. (See the pictures)
Step 9: Step 8
Use the same method, shown in Step 1-2, but instead of pinching two sides as in Step 3, you create a teardrop shape by only pinching one side. (See bottom shape of the earring on picture) Then use the same method shown through Step 6 and 7 to secure the teardrop shape to the rest.
Step 10: Step 9: Attaching the Hook
First, open the ring and place it into a gap at the top of the eye shape. Slide the earring hook into this ring then shut it.
Step 11: Step !0: Second Earring and Final Product
Repeat the steps 1-9 to create the second earring. Tadaaa!! After that you're done!!
