Minature Quilled Flowers in a Pot


HAPPY APRIL! 💐


My niece makes beautiful mosaic birdhouses and asked me to put flowers in tiny wooden flower pots to go on the outside of the birdhouses (indoor décor). I made my first one. Only took me five hours from start to finish. 😀

I quilled with a small "quilting needle" using English quilling paper purchased at Quilling Supply that is more narrow than the 1/16" American strips. I plan to put fringed flowers in the next one. It stands about 1.25" (3 cm) tall.




Thanks for looking!

citrine, red and green are 4x6mm faceted rondelle
clear crystal are 3x5mm faceted rondelle
aqua are 6mm faceted round 


fishhook earwire
5mm jump ring
5 - 1" 21ga headpins
1 - 2" 21ga headpin
11/0 clear seed beads
10 glass beads
jewelry making tools

(make two :)


I used one or two seed beads between the beads as shown.
This is the order that I placed them on the jump ring (see below).


Videos, tutorials and instructions on how to open a jump ring, earwire and make a loop are HERE.

I get ALL my jewelry tools, materials, supplies, beads, findings from Fire Mountain Gems.


I keep all my pin pieces that are 1" or longer. This was left from cutting the 2-inch headpin and perfect for making a bead charm.


This is the completed pair just in time for St. Patrick's Day!

Have a great week!
