It’s time to show you the former ornaments I did with twirled paper to embelish the paper boxes I had folded for my Advent Calendar.
Last year, I had already decorated an Advent Calendar with quilled Christmas patterns, a wooden tree with 24 drawers that I had painted with red, green, white and golden acrylics.
This year, I used the same colours to create a circular advent calendar that will stand on the middle of my table.
I began with a really easy design, a candle which is made of three small coils (9 mm) made in 10 cm long red strips, a yellow flame, and 4 leaves made of 15 and 22 cm long strips.
I use a cocktail stick to glue each piece and tweezers to hold each piece and put them on my paper box.
For the second candle, I made spirals insteads of coils, coiling half lenghts of 10 cm strips in opposite directions.
Glue and cocktail stick…
And the second quilled candle is made !
To make a bell, I coiled two 40 cm long strips together (red and yellow) to get a 22 mm coil.
I shaped it and pinched it with my fingers to get the bell and added leaves and small oranments, gluing every piece to each other.
Then I glued the bell on the box.
To make a white tree, I used 10, 20 and 40 cm long strips to get 10, 13 and 19 mm coils that I pinched to teardrops.
I glued them to each others to get sort of hearts.
And I added a triangle foot pinched from a small coil made of a 10 cm yellow strip.
The red flower is made of 20 cm red and green strips.
I finished with a candy cane made of 7 mm coils (10 cm strips) and 2 leaves (9 mm coils).
These decorations can be glued on paper circles to decorate a Chridtmas tree or be used on Greeting cards as well.
Now I have still a few ornaments to finish. Then, I’ll be able to show you my new Advent Calendar.
