Looking for a super adorable quilled paper craft for kids? This Three Little Pigs Craft is one that will make you “squeal” with delight!
I’m kind of obsessed with this adorable craft. Seriously. Just look at it. Not only is it fun to make, but who can deny how cute these little piggies are? I think what’s really great about this quilled craft is that it’s a given that no two pigs are going to look the exact same. We have made these as puppets to go along with our 3 Little Pigs story-telling.
This shows the kids that it’s okay to be different and to have fun while doing so. When it comes time to make this adorable craft, everyone is going to be singing “wee wee wee” all the way home!

What you need to make the three little pigs craft:
How to make the three little pigs quilled craft:
Select pink colored quilling paper strips for this craft. Take a 12 inch long strip and create a loose coil with it.
Take another 12 inches long strip but this time; make a relatively smaller loose coil with it.
Make 2 loose coils using 5 inches long strips; 1 tight coil from 20 inches long strip and 2 triangles from 8 inches long strip.
The big loose coil is the body, small loose is the head, the 2 triangles are the ears, 2 small loose coils are the front legs and the tight coil is the nose of the quilled pig.
Cut a rectangle out of pink colored craft paper. Apply glue on the paper by tracing the size of the 2 big loose coils, if placed side by side on the paper.
Place the 2 big loose coils on the glued part of the pink craft paper. Allow the glue to dry.
Cut out the craft paper around the outer border of the quilled papers.
Glue the 2 quilled triangles on the top side of the small loose coil.
Then, glue the tight coil (the nose) and the 2 small loose coils (the front legs) to complete the quilled pig. Add some google eyes to the face to make these cuties!
What paper do you use for quilling?
The proper paper to use for quilling is known as text weight paper. It’s a bit thicker than traditional paper but not as thick as card stock. It still allows it to be rolled which is essential for quilling.
