What Is Paper Quilling

Paper quilling is a unique craft! You cut the paper into long strips, and then start to roll them and shape them to transform into a design. You then glue the paper to create a formed art. You can use quilling projects for wall art, making jewelry, fun holiday crafts, and more. The options for what you do with your creations are endless!

It was a very easy Halloween craft, and it allowed the kids to use their imagination. I had set out some different colored paper, and supplies so they could think about how to create their monsters, so they were unique to them. I love a bold colored paper for these Halloween monsters; I think it helps them stand out and gives them a fun look.

You can use any color of paper you have, or mix and match with different colors. The whole idea is the creativity behind these silly Halloween monsters.

Step 4

Cut out a mouth from pink craft paper; you can draw a thin border on the mouth shape if you want to. Select googly eyes for the monster; use 1 or 2 or 3 or as many eyes as you want. Take a 2 inches black colored strip and create a tight coil with it.

Step 6

Carefully cut the yellow craft paper all around the coils’ outer edge. This does not have to be perfect, so please do not feel any pressure to get it 100% flush. Alternatively if you are making these cute little monsters as a classroom Halloween craft, you can precut the mouths for the kids to just glue on.

And finally, we will need to glue the googly eyes on these cute little monsters. Allow the glue to dry entirely before letting your little one play with them. Ideally, you will want these to set overnight. That’s it’s! You did it! You made your very own cute little monsters!
