How to make 3D Quilled Rose flowers

There was lot of things that i did in quilling, but never tries out a rose like flower. This time i tried out paper quilled Roses, I learnt this technique from the Quilling book i got recently.

Yes, the book helped me to learn new techniques in quilling. And here comes this beautiful quilled rose made by me.

I had seen lot of paper Quilled roses and used to wonder how can this be made. And see this i made it finally.

I had to try hard to make this. You just need is the quilling tool and 10mm quilling paper strip to make this beautiful 3D Quilled roses.

However, as i learnt from the book i wont be proper with explaining how to make as the quilled roses needs picture instructions.
So, here is a video for you to learn how to make Quilled paper roses.

Here is the video for you.

And friends here is the quilled bunch of roses made by me.
Let me know if you liked it. So, enjoy the video and try making these beautiful Quilled Roses.

You can all have a try on it. I'm sure you will enjoy doing this Quilled diya and i can bet anyone who see this different Diya would surely love it.

Designing Diwali Diya ideas patterns

As i promised i'm back today with more diya designs and patterns. I just loved doing these diyas.

I still have 2 more diyas left with me to decorate it. Till then as i told you all i'll be showing you all new diya designs.

You may still have a look at my post on diyas "Diya Decoration for Diwali"..

For any of the diyas i didnt use any mirrors or lace or any stones to it.. Its completely painted.

One more thing, you may have a doubt that the colour will go when we light Diya. Its obvious that you might see a slight change to the colour but it wont completely go off.

To fix the colour to diya and reuse it. You can apply varnish after to paint the diya so that the colour wont go and the Diya can be used in the same manner.

So friends enjoy this new post on Decorating diya. Will come up with more for Diwali.


A leaf shaped diya which is the most simple one among these decorated ones. I have just coloured it with green colour and a golden yellow ouline.


Have a complete look in all my new diyas.

Making colourful Diwali Diya Designs

Hey friends, its Diwali time. I hope everyone is busy with cleaning and shopping and preparing some mouth watering dishes.

The same with me as i was busy making some beautiful looking diya for this Diwali.
I made this little two diyas this time.

I got some plain diya which is easily available in market and coloured it using acrylic colours and some tube colours.

The colour combination you use matters when you paint a diya. You can do anything to a plain diya. If you are not good with colours and painting then try out using some shells, mirrors, lace etc.

I'm sure everyone liked the diyas i made last year. Look out for my last year's work on Diya Decoration for Diwali.

Look at the one i made now.


One more of my little creation on decorating Diya.


Do comment on how did you like the diya ??

This is not over I'll be back with more decorated diyas tomorrow.

Till then Happy Blogging...!!!

Making quilled heart shaped flowers

After some long gap back with quilling techniques. I was just guessing you all will be bored of lot of quilling posts by me. There were days when i only used to post on quilling, so just had a change for sometime a long break was given to all quilling crafts.

Here i made just some heart shaped red flowers and then green stems attached to it.
and tied it to a small piece of paper strip.

Here is the one i made. Let me know how is it ?
