How to Make a Quilling Tool
Quilling tools cost about $4 a piece, this is a way to make your own quilling tool cheaply.
Drill (or a hammer and a small nail)
Counted Cross Stitch Needle
Wood Axle Peg 11/32" (or a Wooden Dowel cut to size)
With the wire cutters cut the tip of the needle eye off.
Sand the end of the eye to remove the sharp edge.
Drill a hole into the end of the wood axle peg.
Place a drop of glue in hole and insert the point of the needle. Allow the glue to dry.
You are ready to begin quilling.
It was suggested to me that a wine cork might be easier to use for the handle. You would just poke a hole with the needle and glue into place if needed. No drill required.
