Christmas ornaments & decorations - Christmas tree quilled bells.

     Well, as the winter season has began already, Christmas ornaments & decorations are the most searched accessories, people got bored of their own and like to make changes every year, find some better ones, more beautiful and originals. According to this I decided to use quilling techniques for some new kind of decorations. I will not reveal now all of them, some non-quilling are from last year, even I still have some Christmas cards from then. Let's concentrate about today's topic: Christmas tree quilled bells. Started by gluing some 3 mm wide paper strips according with the chosen diameter (I've been used a metal mold to create the bell model so, the coil diameter must be a little bit more then the mold has), 2 1/2 cm for these ones, then make a well tight coil, glue the end and pass it carefully over the mold to create the accurate model, glue the interior when finished, let it dry, decorating each one with some elements like flowers, stars, trees, then make and put in place the thick copper wire hanger and in the end sprayed with varnish for more resistance. I made twenty of them, each having a three colored rope (Romanian national flag colors: red, yellow and blue). The Christmas tree is waiting for them.
     Enjoy the pics!
