Mothers day crafts for kids. I'm fond of surrounding myself with beautiful and unique things. And the ones made with my own hands are especially valuable. Today I've made up my mind to share with you an interesting tutorial on making a pendant ornament for the house — a ball from threads with lovely chamomiles and cornflowers in the quilling technique.

Following this tutorial I've made such a cute ball but this time not for me but for my mom's handmade gift on Mother's Day.

What You Need:


— paper for quilling of blue, dark blue, white, yellow colors 1-2 mm. width, black color 3 mm. width, dark blue 5 mm. width.,
— green paper for pastels,
— green cotton yarn,
— PVA glue,
— balloon,
— sponge,
— tweezers,
— scissors,
— tools for quilling.

Making:


1. Blue a balloon 15-18 cm in diameter, tie well so as not to deflate. Secure a green thread and start to wind it round the balloon, sopping the thread into PVA glue (if the glue is too thick, dilute it with water). When you wind enough threads round the balloon, cut off the thread and secure it. Sop the balloon into the glue again and leave it to dry on a stand.

2. Assemble the chamomiles from 8 quilling «drops», twisted from the white paper strips, and «a roll» for the middle. Cornflowers consist of 12 quilling «arrows», placed in two rows and twisted from light and dark blue paper. To make a quilling «arrow» you have to press in the center a round end of the element «drop» with a quilling tool.

3. While assembling the workpieces in the rows spread the glue carefully on the sides of the elements as nearer to the center as possible, then join them together. Assemble the workpieces on the smooth surface to which the elements won't stick after drying the whole composition. On assembling the composition leave it to dry on the substrate.

4. For the cornflower core cut fringe on the dark blue strip 5 mm. width. To the end of the strip nearer to the center of the core, add the second layer of the fringe, cut from 4-5 black strips 3 mm. width and some white strips 1 mm. width. Twist a roll, glue the end of the strip, grease the lower part of the roll with glue and make fluffy after drying.

5. Assemble the cornflowers by the rows: put a little glue into the center of the lower light blue row, atop add the row from the dark blue elements so that the directions of the quilling elements and the centers of the workpieces can coincide. Finally glue the made core. Assemble the chamomiles in the same way. From paper for pastels cut out the leaves of different sizes and make the veins with tweezers.

6. The upper wing of the butterfly consists of 3 quilling «drops» of white color and 2 smaller elements of black color. Before assembling wind the middle white element round the perimeter with a black strip. After connecting all the elements, glue the wing over along the contour with a white strip. A small wing cosists of 2 such elements of white color and a more smaller black «drop» located between them. After assembling glue the wing over along the contour with a black strip.

7. For the butterfly's body glue 2 cones together. For each, string a made «roll» with a fixed end of the strip on the taper object e.g. a well sharpened pencil. Put a bit of glue inside of the made cone and spread it evenly with a toothpick.

8. After full drying of the threads, start assembling. Pierce the balloon and withdraw it carefully from the twisted yarn. First glue the leaves, choosing the direction of the composition and the base for securing the flowers. Then add the flowers and the butterfly.
