Beginners quilling for fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving.
Fall is upon us and it's time for some new quilling designs! Here is a tutorial for beginners including fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving inspired quilling.

1. Pumpkins

Step 1: Make three 12" orange loose coils

Step 2:  Make one into a marquise shape by pinching both ends of the coil. For the other two make a crescent shape by pinching the center and curving the ends to look like a half moon.

Step 3: Use a dot of glue at the bottom of each coil and firmly place together.

Step 4: Glue the top of each coil together.

Step 5: Pinch the pumpkin to make a more round shape.

 Step 6: Make one 4" brown loose coil. Then pinch one side to make a teardrop shape. This will be the pumpkin stump. Glue to the pumpkin.

Step 7: Make one 3" green leaf by using the same technique as step 6. Glue to the pumpkin.

 Step 8 and 9 : Make one 5" and one 4" green vine. Glue to the pumpkin.

Enjoy your pumpkin!

(You can even make a hidden Mickey pumpkin!)

  1. These are very neat projects! Years ago I did a simple quilling project with my Kindergarten class, but I had forgotten about it. What kind of paper works best? By the way, thanks for sharing these projects!😊
