How To Create Your Quilled Cats

I’ll now show you how to create your quilled cats with this fun halloween craft tutorial. Enjoy.

Black Cat Quilling Project Step One

Take a 20 inches long (or longer) quilling strip and create a loose coil shape with it; this will be the body of the cat.

Take a 10 inches long strip and create another loose coil shape; this will be the head.

Use 4 inches strips to create 2 tight coil shapes (the legs), 2 triangle shapes (the ears) and 1 strip with half of its length coiled (the tail).

Use a small paper scissors to cut out 2 small round shapes from white craft paper (the eyes), 1 really small round shape (the nose) from pink craft paper and 4 really small strips (moustache).

Use black sharpie to draw the eye pattern on the round cut outs.
