The ultimate guide - How to make Husking Flowers

Updated: Apr 26

Hello Art Lovers,


In this post, I am sharing with you The ultimate guide on how to make Husking Flowers.


I am doing quilling for almost a decade now but, somehow I never tried the husking method of creating beautiful flowers. I am wondering why?

The reason may be this, a decade back when paper quilling was not very popular in India, hence no tools were available or were expensive. At that time, to make husking flowers, a lot of pins with head, corkboard, and graph paper was required. For me, it was a lot of work, and being a super lazy person, I was scared to do it.


So, a few months back, out of curiosity I purchased the husking board.


If you are wondering what is a husking board, it's a small pegboard with 20 pins and a container to keep those pins.

One pin is having a slot and the rest are normal pins. There are few boards which doesn't come with the container and hence I wont recommend them as it will be difficult to take care of the pins otherwise.

So, to make flowers, you have to make arrangement using these pins and then making pattern with the strips along these pins, you will be able to make the petals of different designs.
