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).
Black Cat Quilling Project Step Two
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.
Black Cat Quilling Project Step Three
Take the big loose coil (made from 20 inches long strip) and press any one side of it to form a teardrop shape.
Black Cat Quilling Project Step Four
Now press another point 1 cm from the previous one. This shape will be the body of the cat.
Black Cat Quilling Project Step Five
Prepare a dark coloured craft paper and apply glue on it tracing the body and the head of the cat.
Black Cat Quilling Project Step Six
Nicely place the quilled body part and the small loose coil shape on the glued paper; placing the body part below the small loose coil (head). Allow the glue to dry.
Black Cat Quilling Project Step Seven
Once the glue dries use scissors to cut the paper around the borders of the quilled parts.
Black Cat Quilling Project Step Eight
Attach the tail one either side of the body, near the bottom side.
Black Cat Quilling Project Step Nine
Finally, attach the items prepared in step 2, on the quilled head part. Add more details if you want to.
Allow the glue to dry completely.
Now your all done. Doesn’t it look fabulous!
