We shared this easy paper quill heart balloon art a few months ago and are back with another easy paper quill art project for the kids.

Create your own paper quill animals! This is a fun and imaginative art project that kids can doodle in to fill out their paper quilling and create quirky creatures.

Paper Quill Animal Art – Materials:

Paper quill tool

– Clear glue (also highy recommended is this glue container with a fine tip which makes gluing tips of the paper easier)

Quilling paper

– Cardstock or canvas

– Markers

Step 1. There is a slot on your paper quill tool so you’ll want to insert one end of your paper through it. Then roll tightly and carefully until you’ve created a roll of paper. Let it go and you have a swirled piece of paper.

Step 2. Add a dab of glue to the end of the paper to keep the circle intact.

Step 3. Once you’ve made lots of circles, it’s time to get creative and see what animal shapes you can come up with!

Ask your child to think of animals that have round shape parts like snails, caterpillars, or butterflies.

We love how our adorable paper quill animals turned out! Hang it up on the wall for a cool 3D paper art display.

Have you tried paper quilling before?
