Prep Time: 40 min.

I love to draw inspiration from different art forms and find paper quilling so intricate and fun. That was the background for this idea to make these cucumber-quilled pears.

What you need


1. Cut the peel off a cucumber using a vegetable peeler.

2. Arrange the peel frame into the shape of a pear.

3. Continue peeling the cucumber and arranging these pieces inside the frame.

4. For the center, roll a long strip of cucumber tightly and place it in the middle.

5. Make the leaf using cucumber and the petal-shaped cutter.

6. Use cucumber or actual pear stalks for the stalk.

7. Top with candy eyes and the leaf.
