Quilling Projects


Quilled Clock

This was a fun project I made for my Mother's Birthday.

Supplies Required:

  • Wood Plate (9" - 10")
  • ClockWorks Kit
  • White Satin Enamel Paint
  • Fleck Stone Spray Finish - Alabaster
  • Quilling Paper in 1/8", 1/4", 3/8" widths - various colors
  • Glue


  • Power Drill
  • Quilling Tool

Start with a 9" - 10" wood plate.  Drill a hole in the center just large enough for the post of the Clock Works Kit to fit through.
Paint both sides of the wood plate with 1 coat of white satin enamel paint.  After drying for 1 hour (or until dry to touch) spray the plate with 2 coats of Alabaster FleckStone Finish allowing 1 hour drying time between coats (or until dry to touch).
After completely dry install the clock works according to directions on package.  The clockworks kit I used included stickers for all 12 hours but I only used 4 (12, 3, 6, 9)and used 6" graperolls for the remainder hours

Quilling Directions

  • Leaves: (make approx 30)
    • 5 - 4" marquises from 1/8" paper
      Glue 2 marquises together at points forming a "V"
      Glue 2 more marquises together at points into the first "V"
      Glue remaining marquise into 2nd "V"

  • Fringed Flowers: (make approx 50)
    • Make various sizes (1", 2", 3", 4", and 6") of fringed flowers from 1/4" & 3/8" paper

  • Large Ring Coil Flowers (make 6)
    • 1 - 4" graperoll from 1/8" paper for center
    • 7 - 18" ring coils from 1/8" paper - pressed to rounded points at opposite ends (you can roll coils around handle of your quilling tool to ensure they are all the same size)
      Glue ring coils around graperoll

    • 1 - 2" tight roll from 1/8" paper for center

    Arrange eccentric flowers at approx. 12 o'clock & 6 o'clock.
    Arrange large ring coil flowers at approx 1 o'clock, 3 o'clock, 5 o'clock, 7 o'clock, 9 o'clock, and 11 o'clock.  Arrange remaining flowers and leaves around outline of clock using fringed flowers to fill any gaps. Glue leaves and most of the flowers at angles - not flat.

Quilled Calendars

Here is another idea for a long lasting gift for that special person.  For the past few years, I have been making Quilled Calendars for family & friends.  The calendar templates are easily created using many software packages - the one I use is Microsoft Publisher.

Print the calendar on heavy cardstock - 110# or higher.  I use a one-hole punch to make a hanging hole at the top and then add quilling to the header.

You can quill anything on them, co-ordinating colors to match decorating schemes.  Below are a few examples of calendars I made this year.
