Susan made this brilliant recreation through paper quilling or paper filigree, an art form where paper is “rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs.” In her blog, the crafter mentions that Starry Night is one of her favorite Van Gogh work, and thought that its colors and movement make it a perfect piece for quilling.
