DIY Quilled Paper Poinsettia Wreath Craft

How gorgeous did this super simple quilled paper wreath turn out?!

My friend and I were experimenting with paper quilling a few nights ago and this was her creation. It looks intricate and difficult, but it was deceptively simple to make.

If you’ve never done a quilled paper craft before, rest assured that they are incredibly easy to make and not nearly as tricky as they look. They are time consuming, but I find it very relaxing and almost meditative.

While there are some hacks out there to make your own paper quilling tools, I really think the $6 to buy a slotted quilling tool is well spent. It will make the process a lot easier, and this quilling paper kit also has a little “quilling coach” that holds the tool in place as you twirl and has a built-in measuring guide to help ensure you make your quills all the same size.

There are so many ways to display your quilled paper poinsettia wreath:

  • hang on a wall
  • attach a loop of ribbon to turn into a Christmas tree ornament
  • glue onto a homemade Christmas ornament
  • attach a magnet to the back for a cute Christmas fridge magnet

How to Make Quilled Paper Poinsettia Wreath

Select a colored quilling strip for the flower (I prefer red). Prepare the strip into 6 inches and quill the whole strip with the slotted quilling tool.

Once done coiling, take out the coil from the tool and allow it loosen up a little.

Press any one sides of the loose coil.

Now press the opposite side of the previously pressed point. This will form a lens shape.

Similarly prepare 7 more (total 8 lens shapes for each flower) shapes. Start to glue the shapes together side by side.

Gluing all the 8 lens shapes together on their sides will form a round pattern (the flower); with a hole on the center.

Use any colored quilling strip to form a tight coil shape and insert it into the hole on the center of the flower pattern.

Now select a small bead (I used a small faux white pearl bead) and glue it on the center of the flower pattern.

Similarly prepare 7 more (total 8 flowers) quilled flowers. I used 2 different shades of red colored quilling strips for the flowers.

Use green colored quilling strips to make the leaves (lens shapes).

Cut out a round base, of at least an inch width, for the wreath from cardstock paper. Start to glue the flowers on the base.

Glue the flowers on the base one by one. Try to fill the whole base with the flowers. Make more flowers if needed to fill the base.

Finally, add the leaves between the flowers.

Allow the glue to dry before hanging or using to decorate.
