Today I would like to share my recent project, Quilling Tree. The trunk and branches of the tree are made out of newspapers and the flowers are made out of quilling strips.
Here is how the tree looks..
Let’s see how I made this craft..
Things I used for making this craft:
A miniature pot
floral wire and floral tapes(brown and green)
Initially to make the trunk and branches of the tree ,take amaller pieces of newspaper and twist them. Then wrap them using brown floral tape using glue as shown below.
To make flowers, roll the quilling strips in to tight coils using quilling tool and twist them in to tear drop shape. stick four tear drops together to form a flower. Attach the flower to the floral wire which was wrapped using green floral tape . Repeat this process and make several flowers with various colored quilling strips. And then attach the flowers to the branches of the tree.
After sticking all the flowers to the branches insert the tree in to the miniature pot. To make it stand comfortably I used Popsicle stick.
I always love to find inexpensive and DIY ways to decorate my home. This simple DIY project added some allure to my home. This might look tough to make but this is a simple paper cut design. I have used a white note paper for the stem design and color cardboard sheets as background. The background colors added more glow to the art. It is really quick and easy wall art.. Try it !!
Steps to follow to make this Paper cut wall art..
Step 1 :
Get two pieces of paper in contrasting colors for each design.
The final picture shows three designs joined together. So, here I have chosen 3 White note papers to make the actual paper cut design and 3 different colors(red,green,yellow) of Card Stock paper for background.
Draw a pattern of Stem and leaves on White note paper with pencil
Gently cut along the edges of leaf shapes using paper cut knife. Twist the cut edge slightly upwards until half portion of the leaf as shown.
After twisting all leaves , it looks very impressive..
Draw a thicker line on stems using a brown color sketch pen. And stick the paper to any color cardstock paper using glue.
Proceed the same process for the middle design choosing different pattern.
Here I drew a mirror image of first pattern.
To draw the mirror pattern,
Place the first pattern and the plain new white paper one on another. While placing make sure that the first pattern is reversed.
Now trace the mirror image of the first pattern using pencil
Repeat the procedure in step 3.
Stick the three patterns together using glue and pin them to wall.

We all eagerly anticipate the first signs of spring. What happens when spring starts?.. Plants grow again, Flowers bloom, birds start chirping gleefully in the morning.
The earth looks very beautiful filled with vibrant hues of spring blossoms. I always love to walk beneath the trees with clusters of blossoms, it gives me the feeling of tranquility.
I wonder “Who made these flowers ? I shall think of God, for he made them” they are so fragile, beautiful and precious.We might think that the world would be a better place if the blossoms were always in bloom. But ” Everything in this world fades” , soon the blossoms starts to fade and die and the spring ends.
I had a thought, what if I have blossoms in my home? I had been planning a spring tree craft which gives me feel as if i am with real blossoms.
Now I have created the below blossom tree with three different shades of green, blue and yellow..
Coming home gives me solace when I see this tree craft. It’s so pretty and colorful 🙂
This is a simple and easy craft . I have used the tree sticks from my yard and different colors of tissue papers for making blossoms.
Step by step illustration for spring blossom craft:

Paint them using brown acrylic and allow them to dry.
In the mean time , grab some tissue papers of your own color choice.Here I have chosen blue, yellow and light green colors. Cut out few flower shapes from the tissue papers, twist them using glue forming blossoms.
