Welcome to another Quillspiration! A roundup of inspirational quilling pieces from around the web (all linked back to their original sources) for you to peruse. This month’s theme is Autumn and Thanksgiving paper quilling. These are perfect for decorating your Thanksgiving table or just to make your house more festive this autumn. A few of them are linked to tutorials so you can get right to work! There are a variety of pieces from super simple to the super detailed, something for everyone!
I hope you enjoy this roundup – and make sure you also join in this month’s linky party to get your own quilling and/or other paper craft works featured here on the blog!
The cornucopia – a traditional, yet somewhat lesser used, symbol of the harvest. Here it is made into a fun design that can be used on place settings for your holiday dinner or other decorative use. This is made by Debbie from Quinessential Quilling and can be found here on Etsy. You can follow her on facebook here.
Paper quilling acorns are so cute! I found many sources for these adorable acorns. It can be quite difficult sometimes to discover the original source, but the oldest one I could find was by Quilly Nilly in 2010. So as far as I can tell, these are the original paper quilled acorns! You can find Quilly Nilly at their facebook page here. These can make adorable ornaments, decoration for your centerpiece, for your place settings, and even jewelry!
I love this turkey ornament! It would be perfect hanging from a window, in the kitchen, or maybe just sitting in the centerpiece for your Thanksgiving dinner. This shows a great use for crimped paper! I feel inspired to get out my Crimper Tool and give it a try! This is made by Navanka creations and can be found here in their Etsy shop. You can find their facebook page here.
You can’t have too many 3D turkeys! This one is great! Creative, eyecatching, and a little unconventional. Love it! I found it here on Etsy. It is made by Christa from Wintergreen Design. She makes a collection of awesome holiday and other themed 3D miniatures, so make sure to check out her etsy shop or her facebook page.
Sometimes the simplest ideas can be the most striking. Here is a fun one that anyone can make. This design is by Shannon Miller on Rebel Craft (it used to have a link, but it didn’t work anymore, so I took it off).
Here is a simple, yet elegant and striking, Thanksgiving or fall season themed card. These cute leaves could also be used on placecards for your Thanksgiving table. I found this here on Etsy. It is made by Jill from Paper Daisy Cards.
While this is not particularly for Thanksgiving, it is definitely autumn in theme. This would make an awesome gift to give to someone if you were going to their house for Thanksgiving dinner! This is made by Neli from Neli Quilling Art and can be found here on her blog with more photos.
Here is another unique take on autumn leaves. These are so cute! This wouldn’t take too long to make either and would make a great piece of framed art or a greeting card. Click here to view this piece on the original blog. It is created by Nata from Polka Dot Parasol designs.
Here is one last piece of modern quilled art in autumn theme. I saw this photo all over on Pinterest, but attributed to the wrong artist. I finally found the correct source, whew!! This beauty (click here for more photos) was made by Yulia Turetsky from Israel.
