  1. Take a long piece (about 20 inch) of quilling strip and use the slotted quilling tool to coil the whole strip. Take out the coil from the tool and allow the coil to loosen up.A close up of a green leaf
  2. Take 3 pieces of small (3 inch), green colored quilling strips. Create 3 shapes with them – one loose coil, one teardrop shape and one lens shape.A close up of a sign
  3. Cut out 2 round pieces from white craft paper and use black sharpie to draw the outlines and the eye balls; these will be the eyes of the pumpkin. Cut out the mouth pattern from a pink colored craft paper.Paper and Quilling
