Quilled Snowflake Ornament

Today I have a big fat tutorial to share with you. It looks really really scary and detailed, but it’s not so bad. Trust me. I’ll hold your hand through the whole thing.
Snowflake Ornament on tree

I’ve made a ton of these over the years and they never fail to elicit oohs and aahs. This is a perfect application for quilling. Snowflakes are best when they’re all scroll-y and complicated, and that’s when quilling is at its best too. You just need to remember that it’s only rolled up paper, and break it down to each little piece.

Cut a bunch of 1/4″ strips from a piece of 12 x 12 cardstock. I like using an icy blue color, but a true white looks great too. You can make your strips thicker if you want and it will work just great. They’ll look a little more substantial against the tree or on a package and they’ll be a little more sturdy. I happen to like the lacey look of the thinner strips and find them to be sturdy enough.

From those thin strips, here’s what you need to cut

1 – 6″ strip for the center round
8 – 3″ strips for the arms
4 – 6″ strips for the scrolls
4 – 3″ strips for the teardrop
4 – 2″ strips for the marquis
Quilled Snowflake Ornament

You’ll need some kind of a quilling tool, which you can find at Michael’s in the stamping aisle, or you can just make your own by cutting the top off of a needle with a pair of tin snips or wire cutters.

Insert the paper strip into the notch of the quilling tool, bring the tool to the very end of the paper, and begin rolling.
Quilled Snowflake Ornament

Let’s start with the 6″ center round. Once you master making the round, you can make any other shape. And it’s even easier than it sounds. Roll it all the way up, and then let it go so that it relaxes into a more loosely wound circle.
Quilled Snowflake Ornament

Spread a little glue on the tail end, and glue it down. Typically when you quill, you’d tear the very tip off before you glue down the other end. That feathery torn edge blends into the rest of the shape, where a cut end will form a definite ridge. Here, you won’t notice any ridge so it’s not worth the extra step.

The Round shape also provides a basis for the teardrop shape and the marquis.

For the teardrop shape, you’ll take one side of a round made from one of the 3″ strips and pinch it to create a point. Since we haven’t bothered to blend our ends in, I try to line up that ridge with the point at the top of the teardrop to disguise it.

The marquis is made the exact same way. Make a Round out of a 2″ strip, glue the end in place, and pinch both ends to create two points.
Quilled Snowflake Ornament

Next let’s make the scrolls. Fold a 6″ strip in half and roll each end up to that halfway point. As is this is a heart shape. Typically a scroll isn’t folded, but it helps to have a measuring point and we’ll be gluing that point down anyway, so it won’t show.

Sorry about the blurry pictures. I really needed a macro lens for this project.

The last piece is for the arms, made out of a 3″ strip. On one end of the strip, roll in about twice.
Quilled Snowflake Ornament

On the other end, roll in until the piece measures roughly 1″. Measurements are really loose here. The only thing that matters is that they’re all about the same height. Whether that height is a fraction of an inch taller or shorter doesn’t matter at all.
Quilled Snowflake Ornament

That’s it. You’ve made all your pieces. The rest is just putting it together. Start by taking 2 of the arms and glue them together back to back. With that step complete you should have:
1 Round
4 Teardrops
4 Marquis
4 Scrolls
4 Arm Pieces
Quilled Snowflake Ornament

Start with the Round piece. This will be the center. Next come the arm pieces. Bump the edges of those bottom loops up next to each other, and glue each piece down to the round.
Quilled Snowflake Ornament

Now take a scroll and glue it onto those little loops you bumped together.
Quilled Snowflake Ornament

Gently pull the scroll out until it touches the arms, and glue them together where they meet.
Quilled Snowflake Ornament

Take one of your teardrops and glue it down in the middle of the scroll. Then pull the scrolls over to meet the teardrop, and glue together. Don’t be afraid to unravel the scroll however much you need to. If the arm is bending or it doesn’t want to stick to the teardrop, you just need to give yourself a little more space.
Quilled Snowflake Ornament

Repeat these steps for all sides, and then glue the marquis in the little space between the loops at the top of the arms.
Quilled Snowflake Ornament

For the snowflakes on my tree, I sprayed the finished snowflake with a spray adhesive and doused it in glitter. I tried a liquid glue first, but it tended to make all the loops unwind. Then I threaded a loop of fishing line through one of the marquis to hang the ornament. I liked the idea of using fishing line so it would look like the snowflakes were falling instead of hanging.

These couldn’t be cheaper. You can nearly get 10 ornaments out of one sheet of paper, and they’re incredibly easy to make up in big batches. Last year I needed to make ornaments for 35 teenagers, and these were the ones I went for. A definite budget saver, and still super fancy.

In making this tutorial, I ended up making another ornament that needs a home. Leave me a comment for a chance to win it! Blogger sucks for communication, so make sure you have an active profile, a link to your website, or an email address listed in the comment so I can contact you if you win. I’ll draw a winner randomly at 10pm Pacific Time on Friday December 12th. That’s actually Bear’s birthday, so we’ll call this a celebration of him. Good luck!



  1. You are so ultimately talented… i look forward to your posts because you are so inspirational!I put a couple of tutorials up on my blog that would be fun to do with your little Atti…

  2. I think I might actually try this!! I have spray adhesive and glitter left over from my Nativity play star extravaganza last year… with no clue what to with it, until now… Thanks for the tutorial!

  3. Jill in CA says:

    Wow, that is amazing!! I'm buying a quiller (if that's it's official name), spray adhesive, and glitter the next time I go to Michael's. I love them!!

  4. Custom Quilling says:

    Very nicely done, bet they look stunning on the tree!Your directions for making this are wonderful and easy to followKeep on Quillin', Denise http://customquilling.blogspot.com

  5. Rachel@oneprettythin says:

    Oh how beautiful!!! I'll be linking.

  6. I love the snowflake! Gorgeous AND I think I can make it! I'm going to try it when I get home tonight.

  7. Ummm…. silly question, but what type of glue is best??

  8. Reese Dixon says:

    That's a terrific question!My favorite glue is Tombo Mono. It's acid free and smells terrific, with a quick drying time.But when I'm making 35 of these at a time, I'll use either Eileen's Tacky Glue (because I always have it in hand) or even Elmer's in a pinch.

  9. Super cute! I love quilling. I haven't done it in years, but this is making me want to get out my stuff!Would love to win the ornament. Happy birthday to your bear. My dh turns the big 4-0 on Sunday… ;-)Email cardinaux at yahoo dot com.RC

    it turned out gorgeously! you've got quite a skill. i'm a knitter and have tried to work with small/fine crafts and found my fingers just don't cooperate.

    • Foundinnnanystrunk says:

      Do not get discourage, it took me some hours to make my hands delicate again! The best part, I have a spa day after all my crafts were done!

      • Foundinnannastrunk says:

        I have been. Crochet, knitter, embroidery and painter for years , my hands were to heavy at my first 3 quilling projects, now I can not take my hands off it! Be persistent an halve a nice hand massage if you can put your quilling down!

  25. For starters, this is probably the best tutorial I have ever seen. I am going to have to try these as soon as Maine unfreezes enough for me to drive somewhere in my car.I would love to give the ornament a home. I think my profile is accurate, but just incase… rumpazel@gmail.com

  33. Hey, it is my dh's birthday also. The kids and I are going to try these we have all the stuff for it, even the little tool.thanks,judi

  39. crafty creations says:

    Wow this is so beautiful I must try it – thank you so much for an easy to understand tutorial – you are so gifted. I would love to win your piece although I'm from the UK so don't know if thats possible.My email addy is :-hilmof@lineone.net just in case I'm lucky :):)

  40. Thank-you for posting this. I tried it last night with a large needle as my quilling tool. It took a little fiddling but amazing results. I am in love!! Thank-you!!!!

  41. Beautiful ,thankyou for showing us how : ) juliet

  42. Beautiful! Thanks for showing us how to make them. Can't wait to give it a try.

  43. Excellent tutorial. I made two of these, and they look great! If you're using a sawed-off tapestry needle as a quilling tool (as I did), stick the point of it into a wine cork to use as a handle—it makes the rolling much, much easier.

  44. Shaun and Holly says:

    Stunning! I put a pic and a link to your beauty on my Blog….hope that is OK! Holly

  45. I live in Austria and these types of ornaments are quite popular. They're usually made out of some type of thin strips of wood, but I think the paper ones look fantastic. I'm adding this to my to-do list for next Christmas!

  46. these look beautiful! I think I'll be trying this.

  47. Wow, these are so absoultely gorgously beautiful.

  48. these ornaments are beautiful!

  50. wow…. super cool and super beautiful. I may try it…. but not sure if my three year old would apreciate it….

I've been collecting snowflakes on eBay since the first of the year, so by Christmas 2009 I'll be all set – especially now because I'll be making some of the gorgeous quilled snowflakes from your tutorial!!!! THANKS. Now I'll take a look around the rest of your blog.p.s.I like what you said, "There's a whole lot I want to do in this world. I wonder if I ever will."

  73. Loved the paper ornament. How clever and beautiful!

  74. Shannon.Doran. says:

    This looks like a fun opportunity to learn quilling. I have plenty of paper and glue! Thanks for putting this together.

  75. Clotilde M says:

    That snowflake is beautiful! It would also look gorgeous on a window.

  76. These are gorgeous. I'm definitely doing them this winter.

  77. Anonymous says:

    Your snowflake is magical! I quilled as a young girl, and even then, (30 odd years ago) it was somewhat of a lost art. I'm so happy to see it revived, and plan to pull out my old quilling supplies. Thank you for the detailed instructions. I'd like a tree full of your snowflakes this year. Susansoxendine@comcast.net

  78. Hi! I'm about a year later than all your other comments, but I thought I'd leave on anyway… I love crafty stuff, but don't have much money, and usually to make things as beautiful looking as these it costs a fair bit, but these don't! I even had the stuff to make them in my cupboard! Your instructions were awesome! Not gonna lie.. came across this and made one right away!PS: Mine turned out great! :)

  79. Tsyh Yong says:

    Thanks so much for your beautifully clear tutorial. You make it look so simple. Keep up the good work! May God bless you.

  80. heartquills says:

    The ornament looks so beautiful, and the fact that it is also inexpensive really tickles my fancy! I will try to make it this Christmas for my tree. thanks!

  81. Thank you for this. I made one last night, and then another , but double the lengths for a larger one. It must have taken you a week to make 35 of these. They are so nice.

  82. I have been searching for an ornament to make this year and now I have found it! Thanks so much for the easy to follow directions. tthumb at dtccom dot net

  83. this is lovely! too bad i didn't find it 'til nearly a year later… i'd have entered to win! :) i'll just have to try and make one myself.

  84. Beautiful! And so easy. My 12 yr old son just made one – he used a plastic canvas needle and lightly sprayed it with some canned fake snow stuff – it turned out cute. Tomorrow we're going to buy glitter & spray on adhesive – we want to make more – great gifts! Thank you for you :-)

  85. that looks wonderful! I've never seen quilling done in a 'useful' way before, but now I might have to have a go! Thanks for the tutorial! – Britta J at cutout+keep

  86. These are simply gorgeous. I would love to make a bunch. SO nice of you to have laid it all out so clearly. thank you, thank you. I can tell this will be a family favorite, especially with my 12yo oragami fan!Love, Christi in Utah.

  87. That is beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing. But fix up those nails, mama! Two minutes with some clippers & a nail file. =)

  88. I can't believe that someone would have the nerve to leave a comment about the crafters finger nails! The message says "mama", not sure if this is a relative, but still rude either way. Just had to have my say in this.

  89. Reese Dixon says:

    Nope. Not a family member, most recent anonymous. Thanks for sticking up for me!Yeah, I don't really know how much nicer my nails could be unless I gave up crafting altogether.Maybe that person just has a weird aversion to people who wear their fingernails long.

  90. yea, I was thinking your nails and hands looked pretty darn good for a crafter! BTW, I made 52 of these ornaments for my gifts this year. I made a few different ones, can I send you a picture? I dont know why I am Anonymous, i posted on here a few weeks ago. anyway, let me know! email tthumb@dtccom.net

  91. Karyn at www.somewha says:

    I LOVE this tutorial, really well explained and photographed, and it REALLY makes me want to give it a try. Thank you for sharing!

  92. Hi, have just started quilling and came across your tutorial. Thanks so much. Will def try it. You make it sound so easy, hopefully I will be able to manage. cheers.

  93. Driftwood Girl @ Bea says:

    Oh. My. Goodies! I looked this up because I remember reading it when I first found your blog, but WOW, I forgot how beautiful it was! I'm hoping to do this for the very first time. Thanks for the amazing tutorial!

  94. janeannechovy says:

    Okay, I'm trying to make this. First, what kind of glue do you use? I bought one I thought would work but am having some glue issues.Second, I tried to snip the end of a tapestry needle to make a quilling tool (I'm thinking about this for an enrichment project, and buying tools doesn't make sense for that large a group; I also discovered that they no longer carry quilling tools at Michael's). Have you ever tried to cut a big tapestry needle? They are made from VERY hard steel, which easily defeated all my wire-cutting tools and even my hacksaw. So, first I tried wrapping the paper around the eye, and then wiggling it free to pull it out. That worked fairly well, but the spirals were not perfectly round. I've now moved on to using the eye just for the initial turn of the paper, then using the round barrel of the needle to wrap the rest. It works pretty well.Third, what do you use to cut your paper? I'm using a rotary paper trimmer, but even using a fairly high level of care it's hard to keep the width even (and in the pictures, your strips look to be a bit narrower than 1/4").

  95. Reese/Tresa,JaneAnne turned me toward these. How difficult are they? Do you think 9-1- year olds could do it, or does it require greater dexterity?Kay

  96. These are gorgeous, and even for someone fumble fingered like me, they look fairly easy (thanks for the precise detailed instructions). For those of us that don't have a Cricut or whatever, got any tips on how to get the strips an even width?Looking forward to perusing the rest of your site and checking out your other ideas!

  97. janeannechovy says:

    Reese told me that a paper shredder works pretty well, as long as it only cuts in one direction (mine is a cross-cut one, so it wouldn't work). The strips don't have to be exactly even, so doing it by hand with a paper cutter works. That's what I did, and my snowflakes turned out okay. I would make the strips thinner next time–closer to 3/16" or even 1/8" than 1/4" (I think mine were on the high side of 1/4").

  98. craftystaci.com says:

    These are beautiful. I love the glittery version! I'm including these in my Friday Favorites this week!

  114. What a beautiful and elegant snowflake! Thank you so much for the tutorial…I just started into quilling and can't wait to try this!

  115. Brent Thacker says:

    Found this pattern on Home and Garden w/ just the written instructions. Have never quilled before, but ordered tool and strips and made it the first time! Encouraged me to get some card stock and made my 2nd one last night-much sturdier and very professional looking. So glad to come upon your step by step pictures w/ some great tips which will make it so much easier (esp. the scrolls) I've done a lot of tatting and love the delicate look of anything filigree.How do you go about coming up with new and different designs? Would love to do that and think I would have an eye for it. Thanks again.

  118. Just letting you know I linked to this post in my Snowflake Unit Study. http://www.zujava.com/snowflake-study

  119. Hi, I just wanted to say thank you for giving such an easy-to-follow tutorial. My baby was born 8 wks early last year and we "lived" in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit through the whole Christmas season. I will be making these to go along with baskets we are putting together for the families who will be there this year. Each snowflake is as unique as the story of a family in the NICU. Now…next time I will start earlier as I only have 2 weeks to make 25 in the midst of a 1st Birthday and Christmas! Anyway, this is just going to work perfect, I am doing 9 pink, 9 blue and 7 white, all with the same color glitter.
