Free Quilling Pattern - Lovey Dovey Birdhouse

Our free quilling pattern today is our "Lovey Dovey Birdhouse"

This is done in a very perky Spring-like design and is done in a style that I like to call "adornment quilling". Adornment quilling on this project refers to the fact that I have added quilling to my paper pieced birdhouse embellishment.

If you are new to quilling, please click to learn the basics of quilling and to learn to make the basic quilled shapes that are assumed you know how to do in creating many of these designs.

I simply cut a 1.5 inch x 2 inch yellow rectangle and added a pretty pink roof. For added design, I added a strip of pink in the center to make this a 2 story birdhouse. I glued these elements in place before I added the quilling.

Starting at the roof-top and working our way down, this is what I've done.

  • 3 - 3 inch (7.62 cm) teardrops
  • 1 - 3 inch (7.62 cm) tight coil
  • 2 - 3 inch (7.62 cm) loose coil (like a quotation mark)
Second Floor:
  • 2 - 3 inch (7.62 cm) open hearts
  • 1 - 3 inch (7.62 cm) tight coil
Middle Level:
  • 2 - 3 inch (7.62 cm) S-Scrolls
First Floor:
  • 2 - 3 inch (7.62 cm) open hearts
  • 1 - 3 inch (7.62 cm) tight coil
Add this to your Valentines Day card for a special child or loved one. If you are a scrapbooker, this is a perfect embellishment for your page. The great part about all of this is that it isn't too bulky so it won't make your page too lumpy.
