Steps To Make A DIY Quilled Paper Necklace
Take the quilling needle and 4 mm long pink quilling strip. Quill the strip using the needle and prepare quilled small rolls. You can apply some glue at the end and stick the roll. Prepare such multiple rolls using the quilling stripes. We need to give a ‘drop’ or flower petal shape and a 3d effect to the rolls. Take the roll and press the inner spirals using the needle. Using the tweezer, stretch the topmost layer, press the roll and prepare a petal shape. Perform this with all the rolls you made.
Now, choose yellow colored quilling strips for a unique look. Prepare the rolls just like the pink quilling strips and apply glue at the ends to stick the rolls. Make such multiple yellow quilled rolls and press the inner spirals of the roll using the needle for the embossed effect. We won’t change the shape of these rolls as we will use it in the center of the flower and thus, will keep them around.
It’s time to prepare a flower using both the quilled rolls. Take the yellow roll, place it in the center and arrange the pink quilled petals around the yellow roll. Using craft glue, stick the petals to the yellow roll and form a beautiful flower. Prepare such 5-6 flowers for making the neckpiece.
It’s now time to arrange the flowers in a necklace pendant shape. Arrange the flowers as a pendant. Apply some glue and stick all the 5 flowers and let it dry. Arrange the flowers with no gaps in between and make sure you make a broad U shape. Stick all the flowers together in an easy way. Turn the flowers set around and apply glue to the flowers to let them stick properly.

To make the necklace more pretty and stylish, we will add some beads. On the yellow quilted rolls, apply some glue and stick beads on all of them. Use tweezers to stick the beads without getting glue on your fingers.
We now need to prepare the chain of the necklace. We will make a chain using craft wire which can remain stable and can easily accommodate the quilled paper pendant we made. Thus, prepare 2 pink quilled paper roll as before. Take a craft wire and bend it from the center. Insert the pink quilted roll in the wire. Now start filling both the sides of the wire with golden decorative beads. Once completed, merge the ends of the wire using plier. Similarly, prepare the other side of the chain using the same method. Pick a wire, insert the roll, fill with beads and connect the ends using pliers.
